Nub Cafe

A piping hot cup o’ Nub!

Unless you’ve been holed up under a rock for the last few years, you’re no doubt very familiar with Nub – the short and stout family of Oliva-made beauties that have captivated nearly everyone in the path. Now, the next phase of Nub is here…and it’s far different than anyone would have ever imagined. But in this case, that’s a good thing. Nub will instantly widen their appeal with this new line of coffee-infused handmades appropriately dubbed Nub Café and billed as ‘The Ultimate Coffee Experience.’ 6 sizes, 3 flavors, all different coffee styles, all downright delicious. They had their doubters years ago, and I’m sure they’ll have them now. But at the end of it all, the verdict will remain the same: this new Nub is tasty. 

Nub Café comes available in 3 delicious options:

Cappuccino: A golden Connecticut shade wrapper. Smooth and creamy with notes of vanilla bean and notes of cedar. 

Espresso: Sumatra wrapper. Rich and flavorful with dark cacao notes and a long, semi-sweet toasty finish.

Macchiato: Rich Sumatra wrappers. Creamy and smooth with notes of milk chocolate and a clean, sweet finish.

Excellence in a cigar
The Nub Cafe line of cigars from Oliva are the definition of excellence in a cigar. The quality and consistency of the construction, taste, the flavor in the wrapper are all superb. That goes for the consistent burn too. I have been smoking Nub for the last 4 years and have never been disappointed...not once. I cannot say that about any other line of cigars that I have smoked in the last 30 years, including some very famous brands. It's the consistency in the Nub line that trumps the others.

Decent, but not good enough for the price per stick
Tasty at first, but with a VERY uneven burn. Out of 20 cigars, maybe 2 didn't need to be touched up and evened off on a regular basis. Lasted about twenty minutes and started getting bitter after ten. Not bad, but for the price, I won't be ordering again.

Amazing taste with this cigarillo. Their right, perfect with a cup of joe. Will for sure order more when these are gone!

The flavoring added to the cigar was really nasty. Glad I only ordered 5 to try out. Never again!

Wrapped way too tight!
I can really appreciate a Nub cigar, but this recent order of cappuccino nub cafes have me thinking twice now. I have tried 7 out of the pack so far and and not one is smokable. They are wrapped way too tight making a chore just to smoke. Last time for me!

Nub cafe Macchiato 430 perfect
İ am a Newby to cigar smoking and prefer a sweet flavor and a smaller cigar....these are the perfect flavor and size I don't get overwhelmed as I would with a larger cigar.
5 out of 5
My other Habit
I like the selection, for the most part, sometimes finding the brand i want in the size I want can be a challenge for a novice like my self....what I do not like is placing a order that is "in stock" only to find it back ordered but overall a good experience!!!

A great tasting smoke for such a short stick
Every draw has the same flavor all throughout the entire smoke

Nub Cafe Macchiato
Best cigar I've ever tasted. If you love coffee as I do, you will be jonesing all day waiting to spark the small in size but huge in flavor cigar up. It's good till the last puff.

Yucko!
This has got to be the worst cigar I have ever had the opportunity to put in my mouth. I am a fan of the NUB Habano and thought I would gives these a try. What a horrible thing. You might as well suck on a piece of bitter, bakers chocolate. It certainly doesn't belong mixed in with tobacco leaves that could have been used to make a cigar that was enjoyable. YUCK!

NUB Cafe Robustos (all three)
These are a decent morning with coffee quick smoke(or on way to work). heres the notes , (smoked 10 of each from 2 different sources to see consistency) they all needed correcting, not much but still needed correcting. order of how I liked them Cappi, Machia, and Expresso ( not so much on the Expresso as the dark chocolate was not appealing) the mild flavor of the Machia is ok with a milky choco taste, but the Cappi is the better of the 3 in my opinion as its not as overrun with the infused type flavour, goes really well with a strong or mild coffee so thats the only one i maintain a minor stock of. These are nice but don't make my top 20

Terrible, not what you'd expect. This sounded like a good idea, not so. Stay away from flavors Nub.

Received cigars fast and they were fresher than where I get them locally.

Not a fan
Not a fan! Every time I put the cigar to my lips I got a horrible artificial taste. The draw is smooth, the burn is nice, the flavor of the smoke is strong and very infused with the cappuccino, a bit too much for my taste. I will be giving these to my "not so experienced" cigar smoking friends.

Best coffee infused stick out there!
I am a huge fan off the whole nub line, especially the Cameroon. The nub cafe's were recommended to me since I was buying Tabak and Tatiana mocha's for the most part. I really enjoy an infused stick with my coffee and I ordered the macchiato 542's to give it a try. Wow just amazing. I then bought a 5-pack of the 460 Cappucio's and it took the cake. But one more cafe needed to be tried....... Expresso. 5 pack 460 was delivered and I liked them has well. You can't go wrong with any of them. But personally I rank the cappuccino number one Macchiato number two and the espresso number three. Just my oplnlon. You cannot go wrong with any choice you may make! Trust me these are by far the best coffee infused sticks out there!!!!

Awesome little cigars
Cappuccino 354 has a sweet cap but not overly sweet, cool burn, really pleasant smoke. Especially nice in the winter when you can be outside for too long. This cigar is going to be a staple in my humidor from now on. Not cheap but definitely worth the price especially if you can find them on sale.

Best flavored cigar I've ever had
First off, let me say that I am NOT a flavored cigar smoker. I prefer med-full strength, large ring maduros, and am not drawn in by gimmicks. That being said, I trust Oliva to make great cigars, and I bought a box of Nubs when they were first introduced several years ago, so I knew going in that I'd at least be getting a good quality cigar first, with flavor second. Boy was I shocked--these are far and away the best flavored cigars I've ever had! Really nice, rich flavor that lasts throughout the entire burn. I've had all 3 varieties now, and think they're all fantastic. Not something I'd want everyday, because flavored cigars aren't my thing, like I said--but for an occasional switch, you can't go wrong.

Nub cappuccino
Sweet taste on the head of the cigar, first impression before you light it. The full size nub cappuccino taste great, slow even burn, cool smoke, the smaller size cigarillos burn a little hotter, little less flavor. But great smoke on those cold days. This is one of those times when thicker is better.

Great smoke
These area great smoke when you only have a short time. Let's just say I've been taking the dog on a lot of walks.

A cigar for the coffee enthusiast!
This was my first "Nub" cigar, and I will say it wont be my last, from light up to the end, it had a delicious flavor, creamy smoke and a very pleasant aroma, it might become my daily cigar! I enjoyed this with my daily 4 shots of espresso.

Nub Cafe Macchiato 460
This is a great flavorful smooth burn. There's a taste that starts with the first puff and goes until the end. I used to puff the Rocky Java series but this is the Nub burn I enjoy.
3 out of 5
OK cigar
These are OK, nice flavor but a little too sweet. I also think these are rolled way to loose for my taste, would burn & smoke a lot better if rolled a little better.
5 out of 5
Excellent cappuccino
It can be smoked around non smokers. They enjoy the aroma
5 out of 5
Nub cafe is one of my favorite cigars.
Great for chocolate lovers like myself, masculine smoke not a slim cigar like most flavor infused. I'm a novice smoker and I find it good with cognac.

Great Daily
I just tried it and it has a very good taste as well as great smoke. It burns very well and taste better than the Java. It's a good smoke for a daily.

Nice but a little Sweet
I like a coffee flavored cigar from time to time and this is a quality smoke but the effect is a little too intense from draw to draw. Good for a change but I like the JAVA better. I'll need to save up though.

Not a bad cold weather smoke
I tried one of these petite coronas as an evening, cold weather smoke after buying a 5 pack from CI. The smell on taking it out of the wrapper is fantastic. The construction was decent but, very spongy. Draw was smooth after the cut. The sweetened tip tastes fantastic but, may be too sweet for some. The first 3rd was very good with notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel with light tobacco. It burned well with the ash falling at about an inch. The ash was firm and medium gray. The second third continued much the same and the tobacco became more prevalent as the sweetness wore off the tip. Toward the end of the second 3rd, the burn got slightly uneven but, worked itself out. The final 3rd was much stronger on the tobacco and reasonably smooth. Toward the finish, it did get slightly harsh and a little hot. Thankfully, that was never overwhelming enough to make me put it down. Smoke was nice and thick through the whole cigar. For a cold weather smoke, the 30 minutes was great. From a value and flavor perspective, I like Tabak Especial a bit more. Just a bit more bang for your buck.

Sweet chocolate with espresso
If there is any cigar for an after dinner desert. These café nubs are the ticket, I bought the the espresso nubs mainly because I like the bitterness of espresso. I was pleasantly surprised that even though it was not bitter like espresso. The cigar smelled and tasted like an actual cup of coffee, with hints of creamy vanilla and chocolate. This will be my go to cigar for an after dinner stogie.

A great treat
My husband loves all of the Nub cafe cigars for their sweet coffee flavors and I love the smell when he smokes them. They've become his new after-dinner treat.

JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR
My package just arrived today. Always amazed at the speedy service. These Nub Cafe Cappuccino's are delicious . I was looking for a short smoke, an after dinner smoke, a quick break smoke and these are it. The flavor is in your face but pleasant . Every puff had me saying to my self, "these are really good" and they are.

Great service and cigars!
I'm always pleased with the quality cigars and service I receive from Cigars International. Only once was there a problem when my cigars were lost in the mail, and CI sent the order again and dealt with the Post Office. I was very impressed to say the least! CI has been great when it comes to my orders while I'm overseas also. Thanks!

Really impressive flavor
I purchased a 6 pack sample pack from here that also included a Nub Cafe coffee cup. The sample pack included 2 of each Nub Cafe flavor. While I enjoyed all 3 flavors I have to say, the Macchiato was the winner in my mind. From the burst of flavor I got right before lighting it all the way to the end, this was a smooth, flavorful, and enjoyable gem. At $25.00 for the sample pack I'm not surprised I haven't seen it since. I'd love to see another 6 pack sampler since I enjoyed all three so much.

Nub Macchiato 542 Review
While I applaud the thought process behind this particular offering, I felt that this was a bit over the top for me. I bought these cigars in order to pair them with my morning coffee on the weekends. The idea is great and the flavor is exactly as represented. What I did not particularly care for is the tip appeared to be almost dipped in sugar and the smoke flavor was sweet as well. I am a black coffee drinker and prefer the nature cigar flavors to go with my coffee. The Nub Connecticut and Cameroon wraps seem to match up a little better with my palate as it relates to being paired with coffee in the morning.

Nub Macchiato
A pleasant, quick smoke--mildly sweet. It draws a little hot and the stick is a little spongy, but overall it delivers what it promises... good taste.
5 out of 5
Great quick smoke!
The taste is flavorful and when I don't have a lot of time to relax and smoke then the Nub Cafe ESPRESSO 430 provides a good smoke, as well as, a timely one!

Hard draw
I was really looking forward about this one because I love the Drew estates Java line. But this cigar was packed too tight and was a lot of work to draw off of it. And if you don't have a good draw you don't have good flavors. so this cigars a no go for me
4 out of 5
Nice flavor in a nightcap smoke
The Macchiato Nub Cafes are a nice little smoke. The flavor is heavy on the vanilla, but it works. I think the cappucino Nub Cafe’s are a bit better and smoother, but these macchiatos are a nice change of pace. They are mild enough that my wife likes them for herself. If I’m smoking one of the Nubs, I probably prefer the unflavored ones most of the time, but this cafe series is excellent.

Nub. Love it
I love all the olivia/ nub cigars. In a 38 size you don't get the right draw and smoke. Great taste from the tobacco to the outer Leaf
5 out of 5
Very sweet espresso
The only flavored cigar I've had that can compete with ACID on flavor. Not as spicy as an ACID, but very rich espresso taste. Burned smooth and evenly and stayed sweet all the way through.

Great smoke, great flavor, great cigar. Much better than the "other" coffee infused cigars out there.

This NUB is the perfect cigar for a coffee break or when pressed for time, but still desire a smoke. 15 minutes of smooth richness. A+,

Not my cpe
Nub Cafe Macchiato looked like a good idea. Smells wonderful and is a beautiful product, however, I found that I'm not a fan. It was a little over the top on flavoring. If you like highly flavored cigars then this may be the one for you.

They are ok. Like the CAO Carmelo Joe much better but can't find them anymore. Probably won't purchase again. Not enough Macchiato flavor for me.

Nub cafe
the flavor coming off of the nub cafe is very tasty. However the burn is very uneven. At first I thought that my humidor wasn't working properly. I bought a new humidifier and it was the same thing the nub cafe does not burn evenly.

Delicious
These cigars blend coffee flavor perfectly with the tobacco.. Great little smoke

I DIG......
I dig these...... Perfect for the wifey who likes Flavored cigars, I like the Macchiato better than the others, has a great flavor not too strong and not too mild. Again, perfect addition for the wifey....

Right on the Nub - Macchiato
First off I'm a novice, so take this for what it is, but I started smoking some very inexpensive cigarillos and decided to try something different. I tried a few other brands with different flavors but so far this one really hit the spot. Great mild coffee flavor. Sweet but not too sweet. Wonderful aroma. These are winners in my admittedly new book and I'll buy again.

Great cigar
This is a perfect cigar for after dinner relaxing on porch. This cigar has a nice aroma, smooth taste and is a perfect size for "just a nip" of relaxation. Goes great with red wine, black coffee and brandy. It is a sweet after taste that does not linger, so a nice acid base beverage compliments this cigar.

Macchiato 542 Corona
The aromatics on this one are very pleasant. Generally I smoke and get complaints from my wife but not with this. I have even received a compliment from a neighbor. The corona is a nice size to go with a drink and I spend anywhere from 30-45 minutes puffing on it. I look forward to trying the espresso next.

I have ordered both these and the cappuccino. They burn good and taste and smell great. Perfect little cigar for a 25 minute commute drive smoke.

Nub Cafe Macchiato 460
Cigar had a lot of flavor from start to finish but even with a big cut was a tough draw for me. I even let them sit out of my humidor for a day and just seemed a tough draw. Flavors were awesome though.
Customer Testimonials
Really good flavor!
Whoa - very much milk chocolate. Will definitely do again, it's a nice change from the usual. Will try the rest of the cafe as well.
Thus far I haven't met a Nub I haven't enjoyed or loved, and the Nub Cafe Espresso 4x60 is no exception. Couldn't find any singles locally to taste test, but I was able to find a sampler pack with the different flavors online. The Espresso was the first smoke of the pack. Simply aswesome!! Smelled incredible in the wrapper, was even better to smoke! Great ash, nice white smoke, smooth all the way through. Burn was uneven, but it could have been the way I lit the stick. Enjoyed the sweet tip. I would have smoked this thing down to my fingers if I didn't get rained out. Another winner from Nub!!!
Hubby and I had the Nub Cappuccino Corona last night; absolutely delicious! Not too sweet, but just enough to cap off a nice meal; a nice dessert cigar!
First let me make a clarification to some of these negative reviews. If your cigar is hard to draw and/or having burning issues then chances are it is too moist. Let your cigar sit outside your humidor a few days and try again. Now, I have tried all three flavors and I am very impressed. I did get one box that was bit too moist so they had to sit on the sideline a bit, but they are great draws now. If you like a flavored and coffee infused cigar then you can NOT go wrong with these. I am also very impressed at how long they last too.
Had the Macchiato and it was like smoking a Hershey bar. Great after dinner smoke, could have easily eaten the cigar instead of smoking it.
Very good tasting cigar. I bought 1 for myself and 1 for my buddy. Mine was extremely hard to draw and it was either pass out from lack of oxygen or ditch the stick. My buddy said his had a good draw and we both agreed on the taste. I wouldn't recommend it due to the crap shoot of being able to smoke it.
Definitely disappointed by this cigar, as they are extremely hard to draw -- making the experience too much work to enjoy. I purchased a 5 pack and all 5 of the cigars had great aroma and were well constructed, however, all of them were like trying to siphon a golf ball using a straw...with very little smoke/burn being produced. I've seen others indicate this same issue with this line of Nubs which is truly disappointing....
I just had my first Nub Espresso. Great cigar. Good draw. Not overly sweet. Chewy smoke. Great draw! 8 out of 10. Maybe even a 9.
Nub Cafe Cappuccino - Very easy to light. Very good construction, draw and burn though a few touchups were needed. Thick smoke on palate and in air. Mild strength with medium to full flavors. Sweetened tip is not artificial and stays for entire smoking session. Flavors of heavy cream, mild sweet coffee and peanut. Medium finish of same flavors. While no artificial flavors, slight residue remains on tongue similar to a heavily cased pipe tobacco. Excellent room note/smell. Worth a try if flavored cigars are preferred.
Nub Cafe Espresso - Very easy to light despite dampness upon arrival. Very good construction, draw and burn for a flavored cigar. Heavy oily smoke on palate. Coats entire palate. Mild to Medium strength with intense flavors. Sweetened tip is very sweet though not an artificial type of sweetness. Flavors of dark coffee, molasses, caramel and sugar sweetness on the palate. Medium length finish of campfire wood, hay, cream and then the artificial sweetener makes its appearance. Artificial flavor intensifies in second half. Very nice blend for a flavored cigar save the artificial taste on the finish.
I had a macchiato this evening. I thought it tasted great, but it did have a tight draw. Lets face it...hand rolled cigars always run that risk. Overall, I would not hesitate to have another one.
Smooth and Sweet. Easy draw and no harsh aftertaste! I enjoyed and looking for more!!
Great taste. But to be honest hard draw and difficult smoke. Not a typical Nub. I had a couple after I first got them and more after a few weeks in the humidor. Still not my favorite Nub. But if you like a sweet alternative and enjoy chewing on it before hand.
