Italian Coffee-based Dessert | Affojeans

Sometimes, you are just too tired of the usual dessert and want something new. Oh well, not really new, but affogato is one of few hybrid desserts that originated from Italy. And there’s one stall that serves this dessert beverage in SM North EDSA, the Affojeans - Manila’s Affogato.

I saw their Facebook Ad a few weeks ago and got curious about what they offer. So, my foodie friends and I visited their stall to try some of their best sellers.

In case you are wondering, affogato is basically a combination of espresso and gelato/ice cream. Affojeans uses freshly brewed local Arabica beans from Baguio and mixed it with different flavors of ice cream. 

Affojeans has seven flavors: Affoshot, Matchago, Tiramisu, Cinnabun, Black Panda, Avococo, and Caramello. We got to taste 4 of these flavors. 

Avococo (P140)
Among all the flavors that I tried, this is my top choice! It has the combination of avocado ice cream topped with coco bits + espresso shot. It’s surprisingly good considering that avocado and coffee is not really a usual thing.

Affoshot (P120)
This is their version of classic affogato and also one of the best sellers. It has a gooey brownie and creamy vanilla ice cream. The taste wasn’t too sweet which I prefer. The coffee also didn’t make the taste too overwhelming.

Caramello (P130)
Well, if you love caramel flavor then this one is also good. It’s sweet and salty at the same time. Well, because of the salted caramel. It also has a bit of texture because of the nuts.

Tiramisu (P135)
This wasn’t really our type as the taste didn’t match our expectation. The tangy taste of the cheesecake was kinda off with the coffee. Good thing the chocolate made everything a little subtle.

Just so you know, Affojeans also have an on-going promo for the whole month of May. So it’s like 7 more days to go. All of their affogatos are Buy 1 Take 1, so it’s kinda steal. 

Aside from the affogato,  they also have Cold Brew Float which has three flavors; Affo Cold Brew, Cherry Blossom, and New York Cheesecake. These cold brew floats contain more caffeine than regular coffee and can help lose weight because of the after-burn effect. I haven’t tried them but will definitely be back, especially that Cherry Blossom one got me curious.

So if you are looking for something to cleanse of your palate, you can try these affogato and cold brew flavors from Affojeans - Manila’s Affogato. Either you are a certified coffee lover or just a curious cat trying to taste new flavors, then they’ve got you! These delightful desserts would make your heart pump with caffeine and joy.
