Savorista Recipes | Affogato

What is affogato? It’s a lovely dessert of ice cream covered in espresso or strongly brewed coffee.  

Affogato means “drowned” in Italian. While it sounds super sophisticated, it’s also very easy to make at home. 

Simply place a couple small scoops of your favorite ice cream in a short glass (or large scoops-- it's been that type of summer). Pour a shot of hot espresso or a few ounces of strong coffee (brewed any way you like) over the ice cream so the flavors melt together into creamy, coffee-flavored goodness! 

Any coffee will work, but we love it with darker roasted coffees that balance out the creaminess of the ice cream. Try it with our Yesso! Espresso Craft Decaf or Barely Buzzed Half Caf.

If you’re feeling creative, add fruit, chocolate shavings, caramel or your favorite toppings for a restaurant-style dessert in the comfort of your own kitchen!
