An affogato (Italian for "drowned") is an Italian coffee-based dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of fior di latte or vanilla gelato or ice cream topped or "drowned" with a shot of hot espresso. Some variations also include a shot of amaretto, Bicerin, or other liqueur.
|Main ingredients||Gelato or ice cream (vanilla), espresso|
Though restaurants and cafes in Italy categorize the affogato as a dessert, some restaurants and cafes outside of Italy categorize it as a beverage. Occasionally, coconut, berries, honeycomb and multiple flavors of ice cream are added. Affogatos are often enjoyed as a post-meal coffee dessert combo. 
The word affogato was added to the English Dictionary in 1992.
