The Cigar Industry Report is a one stop place to catch up on the activity here at Cigar Coop and Stogie Geeks. It is a combination of our news reports, cigar reviews, and assessment updates we do throughout the week.  We will also recap what happened on our Stogie Geeks show.  Finally, each week we will look back at Cigar Coop history. Look for this report every Saturday morning at 8am Eastern time.

Today we are proud to bring you a 600th consecutive day of original content published on the Cigar Coop brand!

Feature of the Week: ProCigar 2014

This week, the annual ProCigar Festival took place.  Two big pieces of news that came out of the show is that the Quesada Famlily showcased their upcoming Quesada 40th Anniversary cigar.  This is a unique salomon produced in that it is rounded at the ends and box-pressed in the middle.  It was also announced that grower and Tabacalera La Palma owner Jochi Blanco had joined ProCigar as a member.

News and Previews.
