An affogato is an espresso-based treat that you’ll find at many Italian restaurants, as well as at many cafes serving espresso and other coffee drinks. The full name is “affogato al cafe” or “drowned in coffee,” in Italian. The name really suits the dessert, as it consists of a scoop of ice cream (gelato) with a shot of hot espresso poured over the top.
