An affogato is the perfect summer pick-me-up or a delicious way to impress dinner party guests with minimal effort. Usually, a traditional affogato takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream drowned in a hot shot of espresso. But if you’re not the proud owner of an expensive espresso machine, how are you going to pick yourself up in the summer or make a fancy dessert for your great aunt?
It's possible with the Prismo - an espresso attachment for the Aeropress.
This is called an “affauxgato” since Prismo technically makes espresso-style shots (plus it has a nice ring to it).
Classic vanilla ice cream is the go-to for an Affogato, but really any ice cream could be used for this one.
