Cigar Zen is excited to announce its new humidification system, BLÜME, coming to Kickstarter on November 8, 2016. BLÜME is a first-of-its-kind active and fully-connected humidifier that pairs ultrasonic humidification with an inventory management app for both iOS and Android.

For the first time ever, desktop, end-table and small cabinet humidor owners can reap the benefits of ultrasonic humidification – rather than systems that utilize a fan to enable evaporation, BLÜME uses atomizing transduction which means ultrasonic waves create tiny water droplets that are then released into the air, creating a much more even humidification.
The connected app paired with the BLÜME humidification device acts as both a hygrometer and inventory management system. Humidity sensors on either side of the device send real-time data to the BLÜME app, which then provides notifications when the water reservoir needs to be refilled, if humidity levels alter unexpectedly and when battery power is running low. In terms of inventory management, users enter their cigars’ information into the app’s database as they place cigars into their humidor. The app monitors the progress of aging of each specific cigar, notifying the user when their cigars have been optimally aged and are ready to smoke. This system simplifies the process of aging cigars for even the most novice of smokers, taking away the guess work that often comes with humidification.
Cigar Zen Co-Founder Lee Cocking says, “BLÜME is about enabling that perfect cigar smoking experience for every cigar smoker. It’s about bridging the long-standing gap between cigar craftsmanship and modern technology.”
Kickstarter pricing details are as follows:
Super Early Bird: $195
Early Bird: $225
Regular Kickstarter Contribution Price: $245
Kickstarter Exclusive Premium Gold-Plated Model: $995
BLÜME will initially be available in two standard finishes; brown embossed faux-leather or carbon fiber, each with a chrome base. The unique look of BLÜME has been meticulously designed to compliment any humidor.
