I'm getting ready to process some of my Havana 142. They've all been color cured and dry aged for a bit. Starting to steam them open to de-rib and inspect. Excising bad-spots and sorting for filler, binder, and wrapper qualities.

I put 3 tablespoons of French Market Chicory Coffee in about a quart of water in a small steam pot. I put a roast rack on top of the pot, placed a few hands of tobacco on the rack and covered with a tea towel to hold in the moisture. got the stove on a low-simmer - just enough to generate a little steam. The smell is heavenly : that rich tobacco and coffee smell :3
