in a coffee mill, finely grind the beans. In a coffee maker, brew the
espresso with the boiling water.

Divide the hot espresso into 4 cups. In a blender, begin whipping
half of the warm chocolate milk at low speed. Gradually increase the
speed to high and blend until frothy, about 1 minute. Pour the
chocolate milk into the cups of coffee, stir briefly and top each
serving with some of the milk froth. Sprinkle the reserved cinnamon
sugar on top. Serve immediately with a dollop of whipped cream, if
desired. Recipe by Yvonne Womack(Quick & Easy Cooking ch) Serves 4
