What is an Affogato? 
An affogato (Italian, “drowned”) is a coffee-based dessert that takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or icecream topped with a shot of hot espresso.                                                                                                   Some variations also include a shot of amaretto                                                                                             or other liqueur.
