Shocking for me personally – when I usually try to acquire the special event so long as feasible here regarding the blog site (and shocking for Mike, because he never ever knows these things…i do believe he saw a commercial)! I believe the very last two years We declared we'd commemorate all week long, and forced Caitlin to take part, even though she hates coffee! It’s her own fault for hating in the many tasty drink in the field! 😉 But thankfully Mike’s maintaining me personally inside recognize therefore we could create this tasty drink to appreciate it tomorrow!
This beverage originated from Italy, but I’ve only had one the following, during my home (oh, but I’m so willing to get if any person want to simply take me out for coffee to Turin, Italy!!

Therefore I’ll only include this disclaimer (cause often foodies be slightly crazy 😉 ): I’m perhaps not Italian, I’ve never ever had this drink produced by an Italian, nor are we claiming this will be authentic. it is simply my accept a really great coffee beverage. You can’t really make a mistake with incorporating espresso, chocolate and freshly made whipped cream! I added some cinnamon at the top for good measure.
