Ever since Kinfolk posted their at-home take on affogatos, I knew a trial was bound to happen. Affogatos are simple but decadent Italian desserts that traditionally entail a mean shot of espresso marrying a scoop of ice cream, and honeymooning straight to your stomach. I enlisted a coffee-fanatic friend and we put our own spin on it with super concentrated pour over in place of espresso- mainly because we don't have a spare La Marzocco lying around. He cleverly deemed it the "afauxgato" - quite fitting.
The end result? A video, a slew of pictures, and my newly deemed favorite dessert. Seriously, it's one of those moments where you kick yourself for not thinking of it earlier- like ice cream cakes. I guess the takeaway here is you can never go wrong with ice cream (unless you ever find yourself doing the Fenton's Challenge).
