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.

Cigar Industry Report: Volume 4, Number 19 (Edition 116   4/4/15)


This week we made history as the Cigar Coop brand published for the 1000th consecutive day.  It’s an accomplishment we are proud of and it would not have been possible without the support of our readers, viewers, sponsors, and supporters.  Our content is our own.  We stopped re-hashing press releases, we don’t back-date our content, and we don’t have off days for publication.  During this time, many online media sites have come and gone – and the cigar industry changed quite a bit.  This past Sunday for CC1K we took a look back at July 3, 2012 – the day we started our daily publication cycle.

Introducing “Agile Cigar Reviews”

Starting next week, we will introduce “Agile Cigar Reviews”.  This pretty much replaces the name “Assessment Updates”.  These will be used for cigars we go back and re-visit.  The name Agile implies “lightweight” and this will supplement our detailed assessments.  We will launch a few Agile Cigar Reviews this week,  but our focus will remain on our detailed reviews that we are known for.

Editor’s Corner Volume 4, Number 5 – Citobacar Teases New Release

This wasn’t an April Fool’s Joke. This was a bit of a controversial editorial, but this month we discuss why we stopped covering “teasers” – and we give our opinion on how why we think the cigar industry has missed the mark using them.
