The affogato is, at the same time, an Italian coffee and dessert perfect for an original desktop. And it is that, while some consider it coffee, for others it is a dessert. Although in Italy they belong to the second group, it seems that the rest of the world perceives it as a drink. Be that as it may, it is a very simple preparation (in reality, the only preparation involved is that of a good espresso coffee) but it turns out thanks to a brutal combination.
If someone is up to the task, you can start by preparing a homemade vanilla ice cream. Although there is no need to complicate life and a commercial one can also serve us. So, once we have our ice cream in the freezer, we prepare the coffee to everyone’s taste.
For this recipe, the experts at straight to the palate They have used italian threaded coffee maker (the one of all life) and have opted for natural ground coffee. However, since the coffee world is so extensive, the important thing is that you do it to your liking.
Once the coffee is ready, we can let it cool for 10-15 minutes or go directly to assemble the affogato. To do this, we place two scoops of vanilla ice cream in an ice cream scoop cup. Although, in the event that your ice cream spoon is large, one will be enough.
Water with the coffee in an amount to taste and we serve immediately. There are also those who add a splash of liqueur (the Baileys is perfect for the occasion) and some other topping (chocolate sauce, chopped almonds, etc), but the basic version is already delicious.
