• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

This past week, I received a wonderful gift from member Copenhagen Forever. I will post a picture later. The picture is currently on a tablet device currently being used by members of my family :) He expressed and interest in Mata Fina, so I'm currently rolling a few Mata Fina Puros, and sending him those and some leaf sometime soon. Thank you Copenhagen Forever!

Re: New motorcycle Cheveta!

Hey, I'm glad you like it. It ain't all that much. Mine works pretty good. I cut an inch off each end cause your worked better. I tried it before I sent it to see if it was sharp enough. I'm sure it's thicker than a real one. Came off my son inlaws 05 suzuki gsxr 1000 we changed out last summer. He don't no much about going slow. I got a pic here.

I can't wait to try the mata fina and see if it taste like Suerdieck Bahia.
See you around the tobacco farm.

Thanks again Joe! Finally got the pic (attached): unnamed.jpg

Joe, I know there are 3 main types of leaf coming out of Brazil, there's actually a older Mata Fina thread somewhere on here that lists those. I did find this page that lists "other" tobaccos that aren't the main 3, that might be an interesting read: http://fairtradetobacco.com/threads...ar-Wrapper-opportunity/page3?highlight=Brazil

I did find a half leaf of Brazil Arapiraca I'll throw in. I'm actually thinking of growing some Diamantina http://nwtseeds.com/Diamantina.htm mainly for nicotine content. It'll get interesting.

I finally got the package you sent Dave. Quite a charge of tobacco. I sipped on one of the small cigars to get a taste and it is the same as the Suerdieck Bahia that I remembered. Thanks Dave for your generous gift. I'll savour each of the other varieties of leaf you sent with the cigars you rolled.

Really glad you got them after that crazy USPS loop. Once I contacted them, they took action quick. Hope you enjoy!
