Affogato

by | Mar 29, 2016

Or Espresso plus ice cream. Or, as according to wikipedia

An affogato (Italian, “drowned”) is a coffee-based dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso.

How come I didn’t know this was a thing earlier in life? I had it yesterday for the first time, and it was most delicious! Amazing even. I had it with vanilla ice cream, but a quick search on google images reveal plenty-o-affogato-customizations. The vanilla ice cream melts nicely with the hot espresso, creating a melody of flavours and textures with every spoonful.
