Chaga Chicory Affogato

Chaga Chicory Affogato

Affogato is an Italian coffee-based dessert that drowns gelato in coffee! Because our Organic Chaga Chicory delivers a robust coffee-like flavor, we thought it might make a great coffee substitute in this classic dessert. And we were right!

For a caffeine-free affogato alternative, simply steep a concentrate of our Organic Chaga Chicory and while it is still warm pour over the gelato, creating a delicious treat to savor at any time of day.

  4. Pour half the brew over the vanilla gelato in each bowl.
