Affogatos
ginny
You will all love this, just remember to serve fast...

An Italian dessert drowning in espresso. Affogatos can be made by covering ice cream with strong coffee. A typical Italian Affogato is a scoop of vanilla gelato covered with a shot of espresso and served immediately. Affogatos should not have too much melted ice cream or gelato, and should be bitter-sweet with a combination of textures. Popular Affogatos include Vanilla Affogato, Mocha Affogato, and Peppermint Affogato.?

These are awesome; I use decaf in the evening.

A local shop, Portola, does this through their tasting thing called "Theorem" with a modern spin, using liquid nitrogen. It's awesome.

One of my favorite deserts!
1 pound electric sample roaster, 3 pound direct-flame roaster, both handmade; modified Mazzer Mini grinder, LaSpaziale Vivaldi II automatic espresso machine. When the electricity goes out I make vacpot coffee from beans ground on my Zassenhaus hand grinder, and heat the water with a teakettle on the gas range.

If ya really want to treat yourself, go get some Graeters vanilla ice cream (the best) and make your affogato with that. MMMMMM.

theres a lil gelato shop around the corner from me that takes this to the next level. Its called a 'Wafflegato'. Fresh hot baked waffle with gelato and espresso on top. The waffle sucks up all that melty goodness. Mmmm Mmmm good !

My idea of my affogato is to divide a litre of best quality gourmet ice cream into 3 equal portions.

Blend each portion with Kahlua, Ameretto, and Frangelico respectively. Refreeze.

Create one scoop from each into a triangle cocktail glass.
Pour a double espresso on top.
Sprinkle crushed coffee beans on top.

Enjoy.

It tastes nicer than it sounds!!

I had this when stumbling upon a cafe for lunch. Twas a great ending to a fine lunch.

You can do it minus the liquours and simply add ground pistachio, fine chocolate and cinnamon for example.
Still gourmet style.
