Almond Infused #Affogato!

I have a super fun recipe to share with you today. We’re making a fantastic Italian dessert with a little help from a French gadget. We’re gonna travel to France and then to Italy and you’re gonna LOVE every step of the way!Almond Infused #Affogato! I was going to split this post into two because I wanted to take the time and show you how to make coffee in a French Press but I already know my readers are pretty smart so we’ll skip the extra read. If you’ve never made your coffee this way now is the time to learn and I promise it’s really not that complicated. 

  1. In a small sauce pan bring water to a slight simmer and then remove from heat.
  2. Place your coffee grounds in the french press carafe.
  3. Carefully pour hot water into carafe. Gently stir to make sure all coffee grounds are incorporated.
  4. Let brew to desired taste or for about 6 minutes to get optimal flavor.
  5. Place the top on the carafe and gently press down making sure to filter the coffee. Enjoy!
