Here at Neroitalia, our favorite Summer dessert is the classic Affogato!

Affogato (Italian for “drowned”) is a deliciously simple dessert made from two of our favorite things, Gelato and Coffee. What could be better!

To make an Affogato simply take a single shot of espresso and pour it over (or drown) a scoop of delicious Gelato. It’s that easy.

Italian Gelato is the perfect partner for espresso.

Traditional Italian Gelato is made from milk, cream and sugar but is sweeter with less fat than other ice creams, giving it a smooth and rich consistency. Gelato is churned at a slower rate than ice cream which introduces less air into the final product, resulting in a denser, creamier frozen dessert. Gelato is stored and served at a slightly warmer temperature which allows it to soften to the consistency of those luscious swirls you see in a traditional gelateria.

Once poured, the espresso melts the Gelato into a creamy bitter sweet dessert!
