#826 “bicerin” ~historical cafe in Italy loved by celebrities~

“bicerin”

The other day I went to the Hankyu department store at Umeda. There was an event about world-wide cookies. It was quite interesting. As I was going through the wide selections of amazing cookies from around the world, I saw a staff promoting a new coffee drink called “bicerin”.

It was loved by many celebrities.

He told me that this coffee drink was loved by many celebrities such as Giacomo Puccini (Italian opera composer), Friedrich Nietzsche (German philosopher) and Ernest Hemingway (American journalist and a Nobel Laureate).

It is made of espresso, drinking chocolate and whole milk served layered.

The drink is made of espresso, drinking chocolate and whole milk served layered in a small cup.
I tried it at this event-limited coffee bar and it was delicious!
At first, I tasted the cold milk (or cream?). Then the warm mixture of coffee and hot chocolate came into my mouth. I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and taste of this fantastic drink, because I’ve never had such an experience before. It was wonderful!

The “bicerin” came with a biscotti. I was told to dip the drink with it. The biscotti was great too!

I hope I can try “bicerin” in Osaka in the near future.

“Bicerin” is also the name of a cafe in Italy. The cafe is 255 years old. It is said that Hemingway chose this drink as one of the 100 things that has to be preserved in the world.

Unfortunately, this coffee stand does not have branch in Osaka. There are 4 shops in Tokyo, and one in Nagoya.

I hope I can try “bicerin” in Osaka in the near future.
I just want to have another cup!

名古屋に有って、大阪に無いなんて!
チョコレートドリンク、美味しそう!
それもキリッと冷えたやつでしょ。
いいねぇ。
イタリアってところは、神秘に満ち溢れている気がします。
太陽と、季節と、食べ物と。
美味しいものも、イケメンも沢山!
私は、ブレンディのココア・オレを飲みながら、夜を楽しみます。

大阪にないのは謎です。
キリッと冷えているのはトップの生クリームのようなミルク部分だけです。
小さいのに一杯800円近くするから、ガブッと飲むのは躊躇します。
隣にイケメンがいたら、さらに美味しく感じることでしょう。

ブレンディのココア・オレはカフェインなし?

コーヒーとチョコレートと生クリーム好きなものづくしなので美味しくないわけないですね!
東京にお店があると教えて頂いたので飲みに行きます♪
