My name is Christopher Contreras and I am a pipe tobacco blender and tobacconist.
I am also the Proprietor of Contreras Pipe Tobaccos and head blender for Coeur d' Alene Pipe and Cigar Company, Inc
I have looked through this site many times and decided to join, sometimes I have alot of free time on my hands so this forum caught my attention and I have taken great notice to the members that are die hard pipe tobacco lovers. It will be my pleasure to meet and make some friends on here and talk pipe tobacco and pipes. Being only 31 years old I have been smoking the pipe since I was 16 years old because my father does and in are family we take pride that my great grandparents were from Spain and my grandfather was born in Spain, the culture and history of are crest dates back to the 17th century and are family tree starts for the Contreras's out of Burgos Spain. A few of the Contreras's traded with the Native Americans for there tobacco and I take pride that the Spanish brought tobacco to Europe and it spread like a wild fire. I have a myspace page that is up but I am not done with it but please feel free to visit if you wish to better know me and were I fit in the pipe tobacco business and culture myspace.com/contrerasblends.
I have been blending for about 10 years and it is a passion and true love besides my wife and kids lol ! that I enjoy doing so much. My grandfather smoked his pipe for years and passed away at 92 but the tradition was passed down to my father and I will pass it down to my son's. I am also a huge fan of FE.RO Pipes I had a chance to meet him and was shocked to learn that he came from Spain and now lives and works in Italy. Anyway there is my little Bio about myself.
Contact and Information about Contreras Pipe Tobacco Blends is on myspace I will not spam because I can't stand spammers and will not do it myself.

Welcome, and please add your expertise (and bias! Laughing ) in discussing other tobacco blends. The more opinions, the better informed decisions we can all make.
