What is the difference between Sumatra and Maduro?

    I'm sure others will chime in with more detail, but sumatra is a strain of seed, maduro is a fermentation process. I suppose any leaf can be maduro'd, but it's often connecticut broadleaf.

    To get a maduro, leaves are tightly bundled together and stored so the temperature inside the bundles gets up to around 120 degrees, cooking the leaves to darken them and alter their flavor.

    i think you may like to read the "blending 101 " thread that can be found in my signature line. that should help with this any many other questions.
