Café Medici

A doppio poured over chocolate syrup and orange (and sometimes lemon) peel, usually topped with whipped cream.



  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 (1–inch) pieces orange peel
  • 2 shots of  espresso coffee, hot
  • Cappuccino Cream, recipe follows
  • Cocoa powder, garnish
  • Grated bittersweet chocolate, garnish

1 shot of espresso = 1/8 cup extremely strong  coffee


Divide the chocolate syrup, sugar, and orange peel into 4 coffee mugs. Pour about 6 ounces of the espresso into each mug and stir. Top with cappuccino cream, and garnish, to taste, with the cocoa and grated chocolate.

Serve immediately.

Cappuccino Cream:

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons cold brewed espresso, or strong regular coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks start to form. Gradually add the remaining ingredients, beating constantly, until well combined and stiff peaks form. (Can be made up to 1 hour in advance, covered tightly and refrigerated)

Yield: about 2 1/2 cups
