“This devil’s drink is so good … we should try to fool it and baptize it.”
These words of Pope Clement VIII, who defined coffee as a barbaric and demonic beverage, marked, for researchers, the beginning of the usage of coffee across Italy. It was the early 1600s and, in every port and every Italian market, coffee beans were getting in from all over the world. Funny enough Naples, which nowadays is considered the capital of good espresso, was one of the last city in Italy to get invaded by the “satanic beverage”.
Nobody will ever be able to explain you why but there’s virtually no bar in Naples that serves you a bad coffee and we finally found our true Neapolitan coffee counter in Milan that will serve your espresso with a special coffee cream.
Check out this short video in which Betti explains how to make your own at home version…… it will not be the original Neapolitan coffee but this cream will trick your guests!
Watch me make it for you (so simple!)
