Want a little slice of heaven in Turin?? Consider having “Bicerin” from Caffè al Bicerin.
What is Bicerin??
Bicerin is quite simply a drink of espresso, chocolate and cream. This sinful drink topped with a secret ingredient from Caffè al Bicerin is what makes it so special!
This drink was invented by Caffè al Bicerin centuries ago and has since then retained it’s recipe, style and production. The legacy is astounding!
On my visit, I was transported to the old times inside an old cafe filled with wood panels, dimly lit candles and white marble table tops. I found myself on the same seat that years ago Italy’s first Prime Minister sat in. It was such a treat!
Accompanying me was Lucia of TurinEPI, a local from Turin who hosts weekend tours and Epicurean events in the city. Ever since she told me that the place is run by women since centuries, I feel that that is probably the secret of it being the best place for Bicerin in the world. What do you think?? 😉
Don’t miss visiting Caffè al Bicerin when you are in Turin and also check their specialty store next door where everything is filled with chocolate! Bicerin comes at a whooping €6 but it is really is worth every penny once in your life (okay more than once!).
Piazza della Consolata, 5
