This Coffee Dessert Recipe post is sponsored by Nespresso. We have teamed up to share this “How to Make an Affogato” recipe in just a few easy steps. All views and opinions are always my own.

If you follow me on Instagram you are well aware of my love for my Nespresso machine. My husband and I often pack up our Essenza mini for holidays so that we can enjoy delicious, easy to make esspressos and lattes on the road, while our VertuoPlus is our go to for making our favorite coffee drinks at home. It doesn’t take long to get used to the ease of making drinks in the morning that’s for sure. Today I am super excited to share with you how to make an affogato.

How to Make an Affogato | Easy steps for making this coffee dessert recipe

Just a few easy steps and you will be on your way to discovering your new favorite coffee dessert recipe. A few years ago I was introduced to affogato’s from a local coffee shop that my friend worked at. She highly recommended that I tried it, knowing very well that I’d love it. At the time we didn’t own our Nespresso so it was aways something that I would treat myself to on occasion to this local coffee shop. Recently, while browsing Nespresso’s website for new recipe’s to try I came across their Coconut Icecream Affogato Recipe  — thinking “Why the heck have I not thought to make an Affogato with my Nespresso yet?!”

Nespresso recently launched their Limited Edition Italian Inspired Iced Coffees, which I felt would pair perfectly with this affogato recipe. Both flavours, Salentina and Ispirazione
Shakerato, are available on both the Original and VertuoPlus systems and designed to be enjoyed over ice — or in this case, icecream! Perfect for us as we can enjoy on vacation with our Essenza Mini or at home with our VertuoPlus. You can choose, Ispirazione Salentina with it’s smooth and bold yet balanced or go for the powerful Ispirazione Shakerato
dark cocoa aromas.

Let’s get to it shall we, who’s just drooling over the though of this easy coffee dessert recipe — “I am, I am!”

  • Still can’t believe Evelyn is TWO!! I told myself I wasn’t going to do anything fancy and really “toned” it down for this party set up. To most it’ll seem a little over the top, but truth is it was a quick trip to @partycity, a local thrift store and reusing items I already have to complete this tea party.

  • A coffee a day keeps the mom meltdowns away!⠀
⠀
...some days I feel like I need more timeouts then my kids... most of the time it’s the days where I’m feeling overtired and quite likely haven’t had my morning coffee yet! 🤦🏼♀🤣 ha!⠀
⠀
Definitely love having @nespresso.ca at my fingertips. Great coffee at the tap of a finger, yes please!⠀
⠀
I made this iced coffee at home using our VertuoPlus and the limited edition on-ice capsules, Ispirazione Salentina and Ispirazione Shakerato and we brought our Essenza Mini to the cabin this week to keep those mom (and dad) meltdowns to a minimum.⠀
