What Is Affogato?
This sophisticated dessert incorporates two main ingredients to perfectly balance hot and cold. So, what is it? It’s a mixture of vanilla ice cream and espresso! Each scoop of ice cream is paired with an ounce of espresso, just enough that the flavors complement each other without being overpowering. The espresso poured over the ice cream is what gives the dessert its name. In English, affogato translates to “drowned.” You can essentially think of it as the best cup of coffee you’ll ever have!
What Makes Affogato So Good?
- The combination of coffee and ice cream is a flavor pairing made in heaven. The hot espresso combining with a creamy and cool ice cream achieves a brilliant play on texture and temperature.
- You get two different desserts in one! You get to enjoy an ice cream desert initially, and as the coffee melts it, you can enjoy a cooled ice cream flavored café drink.
If you’re feeling bold, you can easily customize the drink to your preferences! Switch it up from traditional vanilla and try one of our other flavors such as butterscotch, peanut butter, or chocolate. If you want to customize your beloved Italian dessert even further, you can switch out the hot espresso for another one of our Espresso Bar drinks. Don’t forget to finish it off with a caramel drizzle, whipped cream, or another tasty topping of your choice.
