What is an Affogato and how to make it

Affogato, the sweet symphony of gelato and coffee, is an Italian treat that transforms even the most discerning dessert lovers. It means “drowned” because the gelato gets drowned in coffee, and it’s amazing! 😋

Affogato, an easy-to-make dessert

To make the perfect Affogato follow 3 easy steps:

  • First, get a cup and put in two scoops of your favourite gelato flavours.
  • Then, pour a shot of warm coffee over the gelato. The cold gelato melts a bit, making it extra delicious.
  • Lastly, add your favourite toppings, like cookies or nuts.

The Best Gelato Combo

The Affogato typically pairs with a plain flavour like Vanilla, but Unico suggests something more audacious. Try pistachio and hazelnut with a shot of espresso, and it will change you forever.
