Italian Coffee


  • 1/2 cup strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup hot chocolate
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Chocolate shavings optional


  • Put a mason jar in the freezer (this is for making the cream topping. If you'd rather use whipped cream, skip this step).
  • Make a pot of strong coffee.
  • While the coffee is brewing, make yourself a batch of hot chocolate. We recommend something homemade and creamy, but any hot chocolate will work.
  • Pour your hot chocolate into the bottom 1/3rd of your mug.
  • Pour your coffee over the back of a spoon into the mug, filling to 2/3rds full.
  • Put your heavy cream into the chilled mason jar and close.
  • Shake until the cream thickens slightly.
  • Pour cream over the back of a spoon, filling the mug completely.
  • Top with chocolate shavings.


To make this drink easier, you can skip the layering and just pour things in, instead of pouring over the back of a spoon. Using whipped cream instead of whipping your own "partial" whipped cream would also save time.
