Start by brewing a shot of espresso using your preferred method. It's essential to use a high-quality coffee bean for the best flavor.
While the espresso is brewing, scoop a generous portion of creamy vanilla ice cream into a serving glass or dessert bowl.
Once the espresso is ready, pour it directly over the vanilla ice cream. The hot espresso will create a delightful contrast with the cold ice cream.
For an extra layer of flavor and texture, you can add toppings such as chocolate shavings, crushed nuts, or a drizzle of caramel sauce.
Serve your Affogato immediately and enjoy the harmonious blend of rich espresso and velvety ice cream. Use a long spoon to savor every delightful bite.
The Affogato is a versatile dessert that can be enjoyed on its own or as a delightful accompaniment to your favorite biscotti or cookies.
