Cafe affogato translates to drowned coffee. Drowned in coffee. That’s how I’d like to go out, if I must.
This isn’t so much a recipe as it is a public service announcement. You
must should try this, you know, assuming you like espresso and vanilla ice cream and of course there’s a chance some of you have known about cafe affogato since before I was even born and you’re probably rolling your eyes right about now. Sorry.
A shot of espresso is poured over a scoop of ice cream and the whole thing melds into a creamy, barely frozen concoction that makes it impossible to focus on anything besides its perfection for the 30 seconds it takes to slurp it down.
Have you ever experienced the perfection that is the cafe affogato?
