Il Magistrale Cycling Coffee - Racing Wasps - 500g
If it's good enough for the legends at Jumbo Visma, then it's good enough for us desk-dwellers. Wout Van Aert is somewhat of a hero after all, headlining issue 20.7 of our fine cycling publication
From the Roaster
The answer to the question of a reporter to Richie Porte about the level of the Jumbo Visma riders. He felt like being attacked by a brutal bunch of killer wasps. We like to name our cycling hero's as Racing Wasps but Richie is right of course. The level of the Dutch equipe is at the level they can compete for many top podium places.
We developed this coffee from scratch with the riders of the team to see where we can tweak a bit in the taste of the coffee. It has become one of our best espresso coffees till date and we notice that other teams like to try it also...
Favorite coffee of: Wout van Aert
It is the first time we use coffee beans from the Huabál district in Peru. This area is reknowned of the many cup of excellence coffees coming from here and you will taste that immediately. These beans are responsible for the high chocolate flavor in this coffee.
Suke Quto is a producers association in the Guji zone in the Oromia region in Sidamo. The washing station and mill is established in 2005 with the vision to work with sustainable and environment-friendly coffee farming practices. The coffee trees grow in the shade of the natural forest canopy what is a sustainable way to produce coffee since it is allowed to grow naturally alongside other plants that keep the soil and wildlife diverse and healthy.
The Racing Wasps coffee beans are light/medium roasted and give a tough milk chocolate flavour with fresh hints of sweet apples and hints of roasted almonds. The aroma of the coffee is light powerful and offers you a nice full body. The coffee has a nice sweetness to it and the finishing flavour keeps lingering in your mouth as chocolate does.
This is a race winning coffee!
