Thank you Mario
This site is dedicated to Mario Joya Suarez, mi padrino, and his family in Cuba.
Thank you for taking me in, treating me as family and teaching me not only about Cuban cigars, but the culture of Cuba and what it has to offer the world.
I met Mario through a mutual friend. He and his family took us in like they had known us their entire life. The level of hospitality I received by someone who previously I had never met was incredible. After several years, laughs and tears, and of course cigars, they feel like family.
A day doesn’t pass without hearing… “Mijo, are you doing ok? Another cigar? More Mojitos?” Followed by the most contagious and charismatic laugh that always immediately makes you smile from ear to ear.
