Affogato mention… I love you a latte
Affogato is where the love of coffee and ice cream are combined. This Italian coffee-based dessert is made with just two to three simple ingredients and yet a bite of it is just pure bliss.
If done right, it’s arguably the best Italian dessert during a hot summer’s day and where the balance of sweet and bitter perfectly complement each other.
Here, we list down some of our favorite spots to get the best affogatos in the metro.
