Does anyone make a bicerin in Vancouver

Just back from Europe and spent some time in Torino. Discovered the local drink called a bicerin. 1/3 European drinking chocolate 1/3 Italian Espresso and 1/3rd lightly whipped cream (hasn't got to soft peak yet). There may be some crack in it as well with how addictive it is but trying to figure if Thierry or some other high end pastry and coffee place might make it.

As a side note if you are ever in Torino this is a foodie must!!

Hounders I am in your hands.

    That is indeed a fantastic beverage, which I tried in TO last December at Soma. I haven't seen one yet here so will be watching others' responses with you. If no one steps up, I think we should get Mink to start doing one: http://www.minkchocolates.com/coffee-...
