Affogato is Italian for "drowned"
Tried my first affogato yesterday at a café along Scout Rallos called Goffa. Affogato, Italian for "drowned," is a coffee-based dessert prepared by pouring hot espresso to a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I honestly don't know what to make of it, actually. I enjoyed it for a time, but when my tummy grumbled a few minutes later—I am, after all, lactose intolerant—I started to question my decision.
