Coffee Flavored 'Gars

So I got my buddy, Steve, hooked during vacation. We stopped by the local B&M before retreating to the mountains. He really liked the coffee flavored Legends by Drew Estate. Also had him try a Fuente which he surprisingly didn't like. Can you guys and gals recommend any decent sticks (NOT ACID) that would be similar?

    Isla del sol, just it has a sweetened tip. Java is better. I tried those when I first started.

    DE makes other coffee flavored sticks, like the tabak especials. Surprised he didnt like the Fuente too... What's he like about the DE's? The coffee flavor, or just liked the stick? I haven't tried the legends...but Undercrown,  maybe?

    Some newer cigars I've tried are Crux. To me, they are very smooth, typically medium body, and easy to enjoy. The du connoisseur, passport, and guild have all been very good (not coffee flavored, but maybe a good choice for a newer cigar smoker)

    He liked the flavor, especially that it stuck to his lips while smoking. I remember being in love with them early on, but I find them too sweet now. I'm going to be putting together a "care package" for him this week. He just turned 24 today so I've got an excuse lol. 

    I couldn't believe he didn't like the Fuente either. However he did smoke it to the nub so there's still hope. Trying to persuade him to get on here. Cigars were not much more than a hobby before I found you toons. Now it's a lifestyle  B)

    So far I've got him a cutter, lighter, humidor and accessories, plus 10 of those Legends. Not afraid to fill the humidor though!

    True, don't force it. It will happen naturally.

    Good advice Bob. I guess I just know there's so much more out there, but as @deadman says it'll happen naturally. Honestly I'm really excited to have finally got one of my long-time friends smoking. Tried with another friend last year and he only took one drag before deciding it wasn't for him. I'll stop pushing :)

    Just remember. Peer pressure is the most effective tool for getting others hooked on drugs.  

    You just keep pushing.  They'll come around!

    Their Tabac Especial lines are better tobacco with a better coffee flavor. Their just not as sweet.

    I hate myself, and I don't regret any of it.

    Oliva nub has a coffee line, but I have not tried them.

    Tabak Especiale is the way to go. The Red Eye ones aren't as sweet and I didn't care for them at all. The others in that line are great. The Nub ones aren't that good imo. Have that chemical taste like Acid does.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, fellas. I truly appreciate your advice. Now I reach the dilemma of, do I order 1 or 2 of everything haha.

    In all seriousness though, a lot of good stuff for him to get started on. I know he'll be thrilled with what you all have suggested. I went ahead and ordered the Java collection, and I think I'll throw in those Tabak Especiales as well.

    Those are a nice affordable and well liked coffee forward cigar. Flavored cigars are not my cup of tea but he may find these good and mild.

    I'm gonna have to pass him on a list of all these guys! I had no idea there were so many to choose from. Thanks for all the suggestions!
