Review: Dolcezza and affogato

Dolcezza, the Argentine gelaterie in Georgetown has a special deal for free affogato. Affagoto is espresso poured over ice cream or in this case Mexican vanilla bean gelato.

I’ve been wanting to try this dessert for a long time, since I’d read a Waitrose recipe card with the information. It’s a nice contrast of creamy, sweet and bitter. Properly prepared espresso should have  hint of sweetness with its own sense of creaminess.

Dolcezza’s excellent vanilla bean gelato was a great pairing with the gelato, almost like a breve, but slightly chilled.

Now I am a little hyped up from the espresso. I’d love to have this again or make it myself. I look forward to trying some of their other gelatos like yellow peach prosecco and white peach prosecco. So head out there and enjoy it with this weather.
