Break the chocolate into a small metal saucepan, add milk and 20% cream. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil and simmer for one or two minutes.

Pour hot chocolate (1/3) into a preheated glass goblet with a stem. Next, you need to prepare espresso in a coffee machine or brew coffee in a Turk and strain.

Gently along the blade of a knife, the tip of which slightly touches the hot chocolate, slowly pour in coffee (1/3). A mandatory condition: the layers should not be mixed.
