It’s that time of year when the basic come out in me and I have to get all things pumpkin spice, so yes it’s going to bleed into the blog a bit! But trust me if you’re into anything Pumpkin Spice, Coffee, or Ice Cream, you’re going to love this pumpkin spice affogato recipe!
I made this quick dessert/afternoon snack/best breakfast ever using a some local coffee from my buddy Michael over at Pairadox Coffee, who puts a lot of love into his roasts, if you’re a coffee snob definitely go grab a back and use coupon code “DWAP” to get 15% off your order!
The coffee I used was a Brazil Cerrado which has dark chocolate notes and pairs really well with the pumpkin spice sauce that I made for this affogato recipe. It comes out so lavish once the ice cream melts into the coffee, its super comforting – even as a cold drink, and is an awesome treat!
I did decide to cold brew the coffee because I like how smooth the coffee comes out when cold brewed and I tend to like to flavor better. If you’ve never cold-brewed don’t be scared, its just like steeping tea!
I use cheese cloth as a filter, then add about 1 cup of grind to about 3 cups of water to make a concentrate. I normally dilute to taste, but I left it as is since affogato’s usually are with an espresso – it’s totally up to you
The pumpkin sauce is a reduction of condensed milk, pumpkin puree, some pumpkin spice, and a little maple syrup and agave.
Once you mix int into the coffee it tastes straight up like a PSL. its great just to blend into your coffee any time of the day, but with a little ice cream on top with just a bit more pumpkin syrup, makes it that much better!
