Miami Herald November 3, 2016

New York City-based Martinez Cigar Factory is proudly participating in the Movember Foundation’s annual Movember campaign, by hosting a Movember cigar rolling event.  The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow a moustache, men and women to be physically active and move, or host a fundraising event.   All of which spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health.

On November 15h, Martinez Cigars will be hosting a Movember cigar rolling event to raise money for men’s health at their cigar factory in Manhattan.  For more details on the event, you can go to their event page.

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health.  Men and women sign up at, and choose to Grow, Move or Host. Men start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for the month.  Or men and women can commit to move every day during Movember or host an event. Participants get friends, family, or colleagues to donate to their efforts to change the face of men’s health.

RIGHT in our backyards, and nestled in various neighborhoods throughout the city, are a variety of cigar shops maintaining the old practices of smoke rolling – some dating back to the indigenous people of the islands – offering New Yorkers some of the freshest stogies outside Santo Domingo or Havana.

The secret to hand-rolling is binding just the right amount of tobacco tightly enough to burn slowly and evenly – but not so tightly that the customer has to work to draw smoke.

The craftsmen, who normally start as children learning to roll small, cheap cigars, get paid by the stogie: the bigger the cigar, the higher the pay. A good cigar roller can make about 350 cigars in a day – and can earn up to $400 per shift turning out big or hard-to-make cigars.
