CAO artisans precisely construct the leaves in a circular pattern to maximize their flavor and color, in a process similar to the original Cuban method dating back to the 19th century.

The circular pilon process was used to Ecuadorean Habano wrapper and was blended with Nicaraguan binder and fillers.
