How to Make Affogato

Have you ever had an affogato? One spoonful of this creamy, impossibly delicate espresso-and-ice-cream combo will show you just how the Italians are always so cool.

Want to chill out, cool off and still enjoy a little caffeine hit? Here’s our insider intel on how to make the perfect affogato. Be warned: it’s pretty difficult.

OK, it’s not. It’s actually super easy. In fact, it’s even easier than it sounds…

  1. Ready your bowl and spoon.
  2. Scoop some ice cream, ideally vanilla, into the bowl.
  3. Pour a double shot of espresso over the ice cream.
  4. That’s it. Oh, apart from eating it.

Of course, to make the perfect affogato, you’re going to need to brew a pitch-perfect espresso.
