Bicerin, a creation of the Conte Cavour, is an aristocratic beverage from the old Italian city of Torino. The addition of cocoa powder and cinnamon lends the beverage a noble taste. These ingredients, which were prohibitively expensive at the time, restricted the beverage’s enjoyment to the affluent.
- Add the cocoa to the cup with a very small amount of hot water and stir into a creamy mass.
- Add the coffee. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top and then slowly add the whisked milk cream.
