‘Affogato’ means ‘drowned’ in Italian and here refers to covering gelato with coffee. Rich and sweet, and by turns hot and cold, affogato coffee is more than a drink; it’s a satisfying dessert. What a delicious way to bring family and friends together and encourage enjoyable conversations!
Traditional versions call for espresso shots; by using French press coffee instead, you create a more filling treat. We recommend a dark Italian or French roast, as the beans possess a chocolaty flavour that complements the gelato and liqueur’s creaminess. As our French press coffee makers don’t require paper filters, nothing stands between you and the ground beans’ natural oils.
