Il Magistrale - Superprestige
The Modder of all Cyclists
If you like mud, boots and beers - cyclocross is the sport to watch. This niche in the cycling sport is world famous in Belgium and The Netherlands and is the cradle of many multitalented cyclists throughout the years. Sven Nys is the crowned king in this sport by far on the male side and the Dutch females master their side of the sport. Famous race on the Superprestige agenda is the Zonhoven race in Belgium where the riders drop into a mega downhill.
Our Superprestige coffee is one to love and you will notice that this coffee tastes even better during the cyclocross season while warming your hands on a wet, snowy Sunday morning in the middle of nowhere with 20-thousand other mud fetishists.
Favorite coffee of: Sven Nys
Finca Los Naranjales is situated high in the mountains (1.900 asl) deep into the Huehuetenango area. Owner Don Pedro Lopez Mendez (65) works here on his 1.3 acre coffee crop. The biggest secret about this coffee is the process after picking the coffee cherries. The excellent taste of these coffee beans origine from a fermentation process of 32 hours. Don Pedro watches the process like a hawk to create a perfect chocolate taste to the beans.
The Superprestige coffee beans are light/medium roasted and give an intense chocolate flavour with clear hints of sweet oranges. Experienced coffee tasters can find some vanilla in there too. The aroma of the coffee is not very powerful and offers you a nice full body. The coffee has a nice sweetness to it and the finishing flavour lingers around.
We highly recommend this coffee!
