This treat combines the robust, rich flavors of freshly brewed espresso with the creamy, velvety texture of vanilla ice cream, creating a harmonious symphony of hot and cold sensations that dance across the palate.

Rooted in the traditions of Italian coffee culture, the word “affogato” means “drowned,” an apt description as hot espresso is poured over cold gelato, melting it into an aromatic, lush pool.


Perfect for a quick aperitif or a refined meal finale, Affogato al Caffè is a testament to the beauty of minimalism, where high-quality ingredients shine through with a minimum of embellishment.
