Calfrisa (cowl-FREE-suh):

An advanced, sealed tobacco curing barn with a system of ductwork that creates steady, predictable temperatures and humidity. The system allows for better curing of tobacco than using vents and traditional heating methods. The practice was pioneered in Cuba, and is now used in Central America and the Dominican Republic. Due to the expense of buying, installing and maintaining such a system, it is far from widespread.
