I have to admit that I have a serious sweet tooth.
Most of the time I keep it under wraps, but come the festive season I feel that it’s only necessary to indulge a little. And an affogato is my number one indulgence, just the ticket after that turkey starts making you sleepy – it’s my answer to Christmas pudding! To celebrate the festive season, Nespresso have launched a new Variation Grands Crus which have taken inspiration from the coffee traditions of Vienna and the aromas of three of Austria’s most famous pastries. Naturally, I took inspiration from these for a festive inspired coffee recipe – a brownie affogato.
6 shots of Nespresso Sachertorte at 40ml each.
Soft Vanilla Gelato/Ice Cream
A brownie (I used raw brownies I made at home)
1. Extract your Nespresso.
2. Add a slice of brownie to the glass.
3. On top of that add a scoop of Vanilla gelato.
4. Drown the brownie and ice cream in the espresso, add some cream on top (optional) and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
In case you’re on the lookout for some last minute gifts, Nespresso has also launched a new range of Limited Edition and permanent coffee accessories which make the ideal gift for even the most discerning coffee lovers.
