How to Create a Perfect Affogato

Throwing a dinner party for friends? Looking for a great dessert recipe?

Quick and easy to make, affogato is a traditional yet delicious Italian dessert and a clever way to combine the after-dinner coffee with a sweet ice-cream treat.

To ensure you’re serving the best tasting coffee every time,  DéLonghi show us how to produce this delicious dessert with your coffee machine.

Five steps to perfecting the affogato dessert:

  1. Fill a glass, mug or small bowl with 2-3 scoops of your favourite flavour ice-cream or gelato
  2. Select the double espresso function on your coffee machine and pop a glass underneath each spout to capture two shots with one button to save you time
  3. Pour a shot of hot espresso coffee over the ice cream
  4. For an extra hit of flavour add an extra shot of chocolate, coffee-flavoured liqueur or even a couple of chocolate coated coffee beans
  5. For those with a really sweet tooth try adding whipped cream to your affogato or serve with biscotti for that finishing touch
