L'Atelier is produced by the Garcia family (My Father Cigars) and blended by Pete Johnson of Tatuaje. Created by Pete and his friends Dan, K.C. and Sean, the company's goal is to make premium cigars that are "consumer price conscious" and that raise the expectations of cigar smokers at every level of experience.
El Suelo, made at the Garcia's Tacuba factory, is a "budget premium" cigar that all smokers can enjoy. The El Suelo name translates to "The Soil" which is perfectly fitting for this medium-bodied cigar because the long leaf tobacco used to create the cigar's flavors - an earthy bomb of Nicaraguan and Broadleaf tastes - could only come from the dense, rich soils of Nicaragua.
