Affogato is a must try and it is a bit difficult to decide it is a beverage or a dessert. The beverage is made using the hot and bitter espresso to melt the gelato (Indian style ice-cream) resulting in a creamy coffee and ice cream which will make you get immersed in its yummy flavor as the name of coffee also means the same “drowned.” In some of the variations, alcohol is also used. This beverage is really a pure bliss.

Brewing Method: Chill the mug at first and then add a scoop of Gelato/Vanilla ice cream in it. At last, pour freshly prepared espresso over the ice-cream and enjoy the splashing drink.
