This is a fantastic coffee made all over Turin Italy and apparently was invented at Caffé al Bicerin. We visited this cafe a few years ago.

This coffee dates back to the 18th century and is a must if you visit Turin. In this video, it shows the cafe where this coffee was invented, can't wait to go back.

Bicerin consists of hot chocolate, coffee and whipping cream. The way we had it served was with chocolate at the bottom of the glass, coffee and whipping cream.

You are not allowed to stir the coffee, just sip away. The closer you get to the bottom of the glass the more the chocolate flavour comes out.  

You are not supposed to whip the cream too much, it should still flow or be runny.

Here is my version I make it at home.

Recipe ingredients:

  • 4 shots of espresso
  • 4 tsp of dark chocolate, chopped, buy the best you can find (or darker if you prefer)
  • 4 tsp of sugar
  • 2 tsp of cocoa
  • 2 tbs of cream or milk
  • 250 ml or 1 cup of whipping cream
First, whip the whipping cream. The consistency should be runny of flowing so please do not whip it too much.

In two glasses put the chopped chocolate at the bottom of each glass.

Mix up the sugar and cocoa, add 1-2 tbs of cream. Mix into a paste and transfer to the glass on top of the chocolate.


Brew 4 shots of espresso and then divide between the two glasses.

Top with whipping cream and serve immediately.

This coffee should not be stirred, rather get the different flavours as you drink. First, you will get the cool cream, followed by coffee and finally chocolate. So good.

Below are some that I made at home. The spoon is for fishing out the last little bit of chocolate in the bottom.

Try to make these in a glass of some kind to make them look more festive.

Enjoy
