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
- Pour the hot chocolate into a glass.
- Pour the espresso slowly over the top of the glass, being careful not to break the layer.
- Pour the milk slowly over the top of the glass, being careful not to break the layer.
- 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.
