Affogato is a dessert and espresso coffee. Espresso is poured over a scoop of gelato or ice cream. Then, it is served in small glasses or cups with a spoon. Its name is an Italian word that translates to "drowned", and the ice cream you receive is when the espresso is drizzled on top of it.
You can consume your affogato with spoons or wait some time for the melting ice cream, and then sip it. Although it's true that a well-made affogato can be the most satisfying but even a bad one is still tasty.
While you might not have affogato everywhere it is possible to find one which serves soft serve vanilla as well as espresso. A affogato gives you two things. The coffee gives you energy, and the Ice cream is a joy to behold.

A century later, we'll find evidence of modern gelato made of milk. The single-shot espresso wasn't developed until the middle of the 20th century when Luigi Bezzera, a Milanese inventor, created a machine that pushed or pumped hot steam through ground coffee beans.

My personal favorite affogato is one that is able to distinguish from the edges of the melting ice cream and the foam that sits on the top. The barista should make the espresso, then wait for it to cool down before adding gelato. This gives the ice cream to cool down a bit, to ensure that it does not melt when it comes into contact with the coffee.
I also make my own Afogato. If you own an espresso maker that's catching dust, update your barista skills and learn how to make espresso at home. Place a scoop of icecream in a cup and then make the espresso shot. Let the shot cool somewhat before pouring it over the icecream.
