The Duke’s Affogato

The Duke’s Affogato

We started serving the “Duke's Affogato” on Friday, and it was a huge hit over the weekend. This idea was brought to my attention by Sam. Sam is the tall guy that works Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons. Chances are he has served you many times, and you might even be friends. Anyway, it was his idea to make a salted caramel milkshake with cold brew instead of rice milk (like our usual milkshakes). He whipped one up for us and it was delicious. Cold Brew is cold brewed iced coffee. We leave ground coffee beans to brew with cold water overnight. This brewing process creates a stronger tasting coffee, as it uses a higher proportion of coffee to water, and is much less diluted tasting than just cold coffee. It is a great match for salted caramel, and we make it even better by blending in Vegan fudge by Coop's of Watertown, Mass., and raw cacao nibs. It is pretty much perfection.
