The Toraño family has bought a mountain. Purchased a year ago from private owners, the Toraños will be breaking ground this spring to turn the mountain into the new center of its cigar manufacturing operations in Nicaragua.
The mountain overlooks the city of Estelí, where most Nicaraguan cigars are made. On the flat plane at the mountain's base, the Toraños plan on building a 45,000- square-foot cigar factory. About halfway up the mountain, the Toraños will be constructing a cigar lounge with a city view and a lodging facility for visitors.
