Coffee is great on its own and also with milk. Anyone who has ever travelled to Italy will know( especially in the south) coffee is a ritual that few Italians can daily do without. Over the years variations on this theme have developed in bars over there. One of those is caffé affogato, which literally means drowned in coffee.
It is a simple but great recipe that is literally a double espresso with a scoop of Ice cream then dipped into it, usually vanilla flavoured or simply fior di latte.
This version dates back to around the 1950s in Italy and like most Italian recipes is simple but tasty.
