t says:  A colleague and I hit up Capogiro for a post-lunch pick-me-up.  Anticipating a somewhat-boring afternoon, we wanted some caffeine, but also wanted an excuse to have gelato as well.  Problem solved:

affogato!

This concoction of coffee/espresso and gelato wasn’t on the menu, but the gelato-dude (?gelateer? gelatorista?) was happy to concoct one for the each of us.  I went with marshmallow gelato, and the end result, while not quite in the proportions I was expecting (it was quite a good bit of gelato for a small amount of liquid … but I guess I could then reason that I was getting my mone’s worth!), was delicious.  It reminded me of a hot chocolate with marshmallow … except with coffee … leading me wonder: why don’t people routinely add marshmallow to their coffee as they do hot chocolate?  I think I might have to start!  Also, while I had never had their marshmallow before, it might just be my new second-favorite flavor!  (You can’t beat the dark chocolate.)  So check out an affogato the next time you’re there – you can get your sugar-high and caffeine-rush on all at once!
