About ten days ago, Coffee Lab posted a short video of affogato.
Today, excellent lunch, as always, at La Casita, a Spanish restaurant in Guildford.
I asked, did they have vanilla ice cream, if yes, explained what I wanted.
The owner reminded me he was Italian.
We had two options, dollop of ice cream in a coffee cup, pour coffee direct over the ice cream, or coffee into a cup, then pour over the ice cream in a glass.
Pros and cons with both methods.
In glass looks stunning, in a coffee cup direct hot fine stream of coffee.
A variant which we did not try, sprinkle ground coffee on top. This does little for the taste, adds a little decoration but more importantly, adds crunch and texture.
I had no idea what the outcome would be.
It was an excellent dessert.
