I can't believe that he has left out the two or more most important steps! After pulling the shot you have to fill your mouth with whipped cream. And after drinking the "Panna" you must repeat the previous step until you either run out of cream or pass out. Amateur!   ;p

 
Hey, man. Nice shot.

Ever heard of Italy? Caffe' con panna existed there long before Starbucks was even conceived. Sure, Starbucks invented coffee too. Starbucks are so unoriginal even their name comes from Herman Melville.

pstam Said:

As you said, "Essentially a Starbucks invention (but it has previous roots)...", so its name had some mistake of spelling.  In Italian, as my daughter pointed, it should be "Panne", not "Panna".  Since it can not be single, only plural form.

I think that it is better to consult an Italian for its correct spelling.

Posted February 15, 2005 link

It is actually the other way around.
I am an Italian native speaker and what you say is as wrong as it can get.
"Panna" is ALWAYS singular and never becomes plural, indeed, the whole name "caffè con panna" (or espresso con panna, but we call it caffé, not espresso, unless you work in a bar) is invariable.
For example, if you want to say that there are many types of cream, you'll say "ci sono tanti tipi di panna", if you say "tanti tipi di panne" you sound either uneducated, voluntarily "alternative" or foreign.
"Panne" exists only in the fixed expression "in panne" referred to cars or other vehicles, which basically means broken or otherwise unable to move for mechanical reasons. It's an old fashioned expression that probably now is obsolete.

That said,
Starbucks didn't invent anything. My father is 79 and has never been outside Italy, and we've been having coffee "con panna" ever since I was a kid (and I'm 38) usually, instead of canned whipped cream we buy cream from the gelataio and whip it just before adding it to the coffee.
You can also dress the "panna" with some cinnamon powder. Heaven in a cup of espresso.

The Con Panna.  Perhaps the best espresso beverage on the planet when you have freshly piped whip cream.

I just stumbled across this.  I must entirely disagree w/the provenance of cafe' con panne.

Certainly in Milano, this is a popular drink.  I don't know about the rest of Italy, but it's quite common in the coffee bars of Milano.  I first discovered it there a few years ago, when a colleague I was visiting introduced it to me.  Luckily, I visit only infrequently or else I'd not fit through the front door anymore...


It is the most amazing drink - ever.  The contrast of textures...temperatures...sweet and sharp.....I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
