I had a Toj wool MA-1 that I liked and wore a ton for the years that I had it, but I eventually got tired of how "puffy" it looked, and wanted something a little less slim and longer (like how the Rick ones fit).

Coffee brewed for the right period of time and at the right temperature is much, much better than the acidic, overroasted tasting coffee one finds at places like Starbucks. I get beans from the roaster down the street (or grinds if I'm making it...
WRT the never ending debate of cuban vs. non-cuban cigars, I think the place that non-cuban cigars really shine is the ability to blend tobacco from different regions into cigars.
