Affogato al Caffè Italian Coffee is an Italian coffee made with ice cream that is drowned in espresso.
It is funny how one little kink can cause a ripple effect. I noticed last week when I was in MailChimp that the emails newsletter have not been going out for awhile. There was something blocking the feed that was the issue.
So I had to have my developer look into the problem. The issue was a little more than a simple little fix. It was like a plugin that was acting up and needed to be reinstalled, but finally, we got it fixed.
I really like my dev guy, Lokesh. When I made the move to WordPress from Blogger, he did everything. He created the template, the move, even the hosting I got from him and his company.
I see people all the time ask on Facebook, who can they get for hosting? Can someone recommend a dev? I see the common things in these requests, someone who is reliable and affordable. I always recommend Lokesh because he is both affordable and reliable.
I am working with him on the new website Recipentrest. I knew he would do a great job on it. He has, I never been disappointed by him. So now you’re wondering, what is his company called that I work with?
You can find them at http://www.webfortuners.com/ Trust me I highly recommend them for anyone with a blog or looking to have a website.
Affogato al Caffè
Coffee is something almost everyone around the world seems to sip on. I saw this Buzzfeed video about coffee around the world. That inspired me to look into International coffees. Sure I knew about Turkish coffee, but I wanted to know about other great coffee recipe creations from around the world.
Ok, I admit I liked a guy who I knew adored coffee, when he was over in Egypt, visiting his family, he kept posting photos of these coffee creations he had over there, I thought I impress him. I have to stop doing that, looking into recipes to impress a guy. I know it a bad thing I do, for some reason I have that expression, “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” stuck in my mind.
Anyway, my trying to impress him, I learned a few international ways of coffee-making. Including this Affogato al Caffè. Which is an Italian coffee. Affogato literally means drowned in coffee. What do we drown in the coffee? Ice cream or gelato of course.
