Since 2002, Tesa Cigar Co. has been proudly manufacturing cigars in our family owned factory, located in Esteli, Nicaragua. To initiate the process of opening a cigar factory is a daunting process for anyone, even more so when you are starting from scratch and donʼt come from cigar pedigree. Passion, humility, perseverance, and a touch of insanity are just a few qualities required to undertake such a task. We did.
For us, building our own factory was the only option, it wasn’t acceptable to have someone else make our cigars. We live there, work with the people, work the tobaccos, and we get to live our passion everyday. Our factory is raw and not one of luxury, we have only one focus there, and that is to provide the finest example of Nicaraguan cigars. We hope you enjoy this quick, inside-view of our dream taking place.
