What is an Affogato al Caffè?
Ice cream or gelato topped with a shot of espresso. My suggestion is to go for caramel or chocolate flavored ice cream because it tastes like a sweeter, dessert version of a flavored latte. In other words, it’s a caffeinated dessert. I know, it doesn’t get much better. If you want to know more about espresso coffee, read here.
Now, let me help you out with some fun facts and pro tips: matcha and chai lattes don’t have espresso. They’re actually just called lattes because they’re mixed with milk in a similar way. Please don’t tell people these drinks are actually lattes.
If you’re trying to impress your date, or just want to satisfy your taste buds in the early morning (or late at night, I don’t judge), go for something a little more adventurous and continue on your espresso journey. Stay caffeinated, my friends.
