RECIPES | Lavazza recently sent us one of their new coffee pod machines, the A Modo Mio ‘Tiny’, and we decided to integrate it into a recipe. Lavazza is from Turin, in Italy’s Piedmontese region, and it is here where the traditional hot drink Bicerin originated. It’s a simple, tasty drink containing espresso, hot chocolate, and milk. It’s based on the 17th century drink Bavareisa Torinese, with the ingredients being layered rather than mixed.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes / Cooking Time: nil / Serves: 1


  • 50ml (1 pod) espresso
  • 50ml hot chocolate
  • 50ml full cream milk


  1. Pour the hot chocolate into a glass.
  2. Pour the espresso slowly over the top of the glass, being careful not to break the layer.
  3. Pour the milk slowly over the top of the glass, being careful not to break the layer.
  4. Serve immediately


You can use heavy cream instead of milk if you want a more indulgent drink – this method is quite popular in the USA. If you mess up the layering just stir everything together and enjoy the drink, which will now be a Bavareisa Torinese.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
