Oh, let me tell you, it is AMAZING.
Indeed. It's been one of my favourite deserts for probably 30-odd years.

We discovered it at a favorite Italian restaurant a number of years ago, I don't make it often enough, but I find a stovetop espresso/moka pot makes just the right kind of coffee for this. I need to make it very soon!

Last night I learned that there exists a thing called an Affogato. Which is a shot of espresso poured over a small scoop of vanilla gelato. I think I need to make some gelato this weekend to give it a try. I almost tried it last night with some store brand vanilla ice cream, but didn't want the caffeine at 9pm.
Yes, the combination of vanilla ice cream plus coffee is amazing.

As a procrastinating college student, I faced the problem of trying to stay away at 2AM to finish a paper that was due in the morning. My answer was a couple tablespoons of instant coffee crystals in vanilla ice cream. It was wonderful! Dark plus creamy, sweet plus slightly bitter, with heady aromas of vanilla plus coffee, and the energy of sugar plus a jolt of caffeine.

I got the paper done but did not sleep a wink!

My favorite coffee is mine. I roast it myself at home.

Supporting the local roasters (there is quite a few around the town) who do a good job of keeping me caffeined up - Peaberry Roasters "Straight Up" is the current fave.

Whenever I visit Spain I always make it a point to at least have a couple coffees and buy a bag of beans from a local café; they do their own roasting and blending of the beans. They were currently using a house blend of Brazil and Ethiopia beans which was mild yet very flavourful as a "cortado", so that's what I took... let's see how it feels on the French press and on the Moka pot.

It's a long way from Australia to Spain, and at the moment there is not many ways out or back in to the country, so I'll have to make do with the novacastrian roasters. Very few beans grown in Australia so the berries come from central and south america and africa. Did a course to learn how to make a better coffee a couple of years back which included a look through the roasting factory - intoxicating!

Yeah, in both Germany and Spain of course the coffee is grown elsewhere... but at least I can support local roasters who use fair trade beans.
