Classic Affogato: Espresso with vanilla ice cream

Dit zijn de lekkerste koffiedrankjes met alcohol

In this series of blogs we discuss the best coffee drinks with and without alcohol.

The classic Affogato is a combination of a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a nice strong espresso. We used our Gold koffiebonen These are strong in flavor which pairs well with the vanilla ice cream. Since the scoop of ice melts, this coffee should be served immediately with a fresh espresso over it. We recommend that you let the coffee machine do its work while you scoop the ice cream into the glass. Make with the Hipresso coffeemachine the espresso is not too big, use between 30ml to 40ml and 12g of beans. Below the photo we tell you more about what makes the Affogato finish!

What makes the delicious combination is to serve a delicious liqueur with it. You do this in a separate glass with ice or a shot glass. Think of liqueurs such as Amaretto, Baileys or Grand Marnier.

To complete the recipe, a piece of chocolate or almond shavings can be served with it. This is to complete the experience.
