Marocchino (Cafè Marocchino) is an Italian coffee drink created in Turin, normally served in a small glass. It is a shot of espresso, a sprinkling of cocoa, frothed whole milk (about two table spoons to bring to the brim of the glass), then a further sprinkling of cocoa on top. The name Marocchino probably derives from its color, but, de facto, the marocchino was a type of leather of bright color which was used in the ages of 30-s to make hair bands.
The methods of preparing this special coffee differ from bar to bar, from person to person and each of them seem to be the original ones. The glass cup is first covered with cocoa powder, and then it is filled up with milk foam together with the espresso. Another dusting of cocoa is sprinkled on the top of the glass and the Marocchino is ready to be served.
