Coffee and Sport:
perfect union between physical well-being and well-being of the soul.
A new sponsorship has been born in Caffè Ernani!
We decided to support a sporting entity we are very fond of.
The owners of Caffè Ernani have always been big basketball fans, and having all grown up in Desio, they have one particular team in their hearts: Aurora Desio Basket.
They have followed every game, even on the road, so that they always have a way to cheer their favorite team.
We could only begin this collaboration to offer concrete support.
We believe that supporting sports is important. Wellness and physical health are always fundamental to being well as people.
From birth to the present day
The company was born on June 29, 1994, a few days after the death of the old and glorious A.S. Aurora Basket Desio.
After a first season, 1994/95, exclusively dedicated to youth activity and studded with many satisfactions, the merger with Orobica Basket Bergamo allows the Desiana company to return to play the B2 series championship in the 1995/96 vintage. While the following year, thanks to the acquisition of the rights of Juve Cremona, Aurora participates in the B1 championship, immediately touching promotion to Serie A2 on the first attempt.
In the summer of ’98, however, they opted for a turnaround, choosing not to enroll in B1, but starting from the Promotion Championship, in which the young owners could play.
The climb to the national championships proved to be sudden and in just 3 seasons the Aurora conquered the C1 series.
It began in fact with the finals in the spring of 1999 during which the desiana team hits the D series; the following year the script is repeated: no playoffs and direct promotion to Serie C2. In 2000/01, after having closed the regular season in second position, the desians obtained the pass for Serie C1, winning the place of honor at the Final-Six in Cassano d’Adda.
He spent thirteen seasons in Serie C1, reaching the playoffs eleven times, the semifinals five times and the final promotion in the 2009/10 and 2013/14 seasons.
In the summer of 2014, the request for repechage in Serie B was accepted, allowing Aurora to return to the third national series 16 years after the last appearance.
This incredible experience lasted 5 years, achieving a great result, reaching the promotion playoffs, won in the 2017/18 season.
In the following season, the Aurora was relegated again to Serie C Gold, a category that it still plays today.
Aurora Desio basketball over the years won the following titles:
- 4 Junior/Under 20 National Finals (1995, 2000, 2004, 2017)
- 3 Under-19 National Finals (2009, 2010, 2013)
- 2 Cadet/Under 18 National Finals (1996, 2016)
- 4 Under-17 National Finals (2008, 2011, 2014, 2015)
- 5 Student/Under 16 National Finals (1996, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2016)
- 7 Under 15 National Finals (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015)
- 1 Under 14 National Finals (2019)
The perfect coffee for
Did you know that one of the merits of medium roasting, besides the amplification of aromas and aromatic nuances, is that you are able to retain more caffeine in the beans?
In fact, with the medium roast you do not go to “stress” the coffee too much by over-roasting it. This allows the beans to retain a higher concentration of caffeine within them. It is therefore the perfect coffee for more energy.
That’s why it’s perfect for athletes!
The team's favorite Ernani's coffee?
A blend with a higher percentage of Arabica coffee, with sweet notes of chocolate and hazelnuts and a round body.
Allegro is the flagship blend of the Torrefazione in Corso Buenos Aires, 20 in Milan, which has been served at the counter for several decades now, releasing from time to time the fresh, sweet aromas of single-origin Arabica, combined with the full-bodied, intense flavor of robusta.
