Trending Coffee Taste Test Episode 4 | The Affogato

     Coffee desserts are a great way to top off a party or formal gathering. The Affogato is a simple yet sophisticated dessert guaranteed to make your guests feel welcome and at home. It’s also simple enough that you can make it at home whenever you want a tasty and refreshing dessert. You may be reluctant to have a coffee dessert in the evening, but with our Swiss Water Process (SWP) and Sugarcane Decaf offerings, you can enjoy a delicious coffee dessert without worrying about the effects of caffeine. With the Swiss Water Process, you can also be confident that it’s a chemical-free decaf. The Swiss Water Process gently removes caffeine until the beans are 99.9% caffeine-free using water rather than chemicals while maintaining the bean’s distinctive origin and flavor characteristics.

     If you don’t have an espresso maker, you can also use cold brew or drip coffee to pour over the ice cream and still enjoy an affogato. Watch our YouTube video to hear our thoughts and see a brief demonstration of how to make an Affogato dessert at home.
