''NICARAGUA'S BEST KEPT SECRET!''

OUR MOMBACHO STORY
In 2006, a successful & adventurous Premium Beer Pioneer was fortunate enough to stumble upon the little-known wonder of Granada, Nicaragua.
Captivated by the rich culture of the oldest Colonial City in the Americas, he discovered the true essence of Nicaragua, the spirit of the people and the beauty of their surroundings. With Volcanoes, Oceans and Island-filled lakes, the real secret was Nicaragua’s extraordinary Volcanic soil blessed with the finest Tobacco’s in the world.
Climbing to the peak of Volcan Mombacho, with only a fine Nicaraguan Cigar in hand and with the brilliance of Granada as a backdrop, the Cigar was blissfully cut & lit. This not only allowed for pause & reflection on the impact of this journey but brought about the very first Mombacho Moment and it was clear this experience had to be shared with the world.
Mombacho Cigars was born!
WE STAMP EVERY CIGAR WITH ITS PRODUCTION DATE
Our Aging Room is built of the luscious Nicaraguan cedar, called Cedro Macho. This cedar also adorns the walls, which provides the perfect condition and ambiance for aging our 100% Hand Made Cigars.
Our aging room is equipped with an advanced humidification system which automatically sprays a mist of only purified and balanced water into the micro-climate. Our system produces a fine vapor of 5 micron water molecules, delivering a non-wetting humidity at regular intervals. The energy-efficient, clean-air conditioning unit keeps the room at the perfect cooling temperature and assists in controlling humidity levels. The blend of water mist and cool air keeps our Aging Room exactly at the optimal conditioning for aging and delivers to you the highest quality of aged and humidified cigars.
We age our cigars to perfection, where each sleep peacefully until they are ready to be woken. After this process is completed, our cigars are moved from the Aging Room to be hand-dressed in our Packaging Room. Here, our well-aged cigars are kept at a controlled temperature while they are sorted and labelled with a date stamp, certifying exactly when your Mombacho Cigar was rolled.
THE ONLY AUTHENTIC COLONIAL CIGAR FACTORY IN THE WORLD
Casa Favilli's primary historical achievment is being the first home built with cement and steel beams in Nicaragua. Now home to Mombacho Cigars, we continue in the legacy of the monument as we graciously produce our 100% Hand Made cigars, aside the sculptures and hand paintings from Mario Favilli himself, as the first cigar company to do so in an authentic Colonial Mansion. Mario Favilli, an architect and sculptor from Pisa, Italy, ventured from Europe, passing through the Caribbean and Central America in the beginning of the 20th century as a young man. With a short stop in La Habana, Cuba seeking architectural buisness and foreign oppurtunity, Favilli was inspired to travel to Central America. By 1913, Favilli was already in Nicaragua, moving to Granada where he married his bride and estabilshed his decorative tile & brick company, Ladrilleria Favilli which is in it's 4th generation as a Granada family owned buisness. In 1925, Favilli built his impressive and immaculate home, Casa Favilli, for he and his family.
