An “Affogato” is an excellent summer pick-me-up or a deliciously easy way to impress dinner guests with little effort overall! Normally, a traditional affogato takes the form of a scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato covered in a steamy hot shot of espresso. But, if you’re not yet the proud owner of a fancy espresso machine, how are you going to make an espresso with ease for yourself and others?
When talking coffee, few recipes are more simple or delectable as the classic Italain affogato. Originally made famous in the ’90s, this recipe was named for the Italian word for “drowned” coming from the action of drowning the ice cream in two shots of espresso. Traditionally, when creating an affogato the scoops of ice cream are vanilla, but if you’re feeling fancy, we’ve also been known to experiment with a variety of blue bell ice creams, chocolate chip cookie dough and rocky road is a personal favorite or frankly, whatever our heart desires!
