But... what is affogato?
Hot chocolate “like it used to be made,” a nice abundant serving of gelato… and the trick is done: you are ready to enjoy an “affogato.” Though the origin of the term is uncertain (in Italian means “drowned”), gelato enthusiasts can agree on the fact that the one “drowning” is the nice heaping portion of gelato in a “sea” of delicious artisan hot chocolate!
Hot chocolate according to Grom.
Our philosophy is to use only the best ingredients served in the best possible way: we heat up the hot chocolate only at the time of serving to best preserve the aromatic properties of our selection of cacao beans. Almost a religious experience, it entails the use of chocolate, a far better ingredient than the cocoa powder typically used in the US and other European countries.
DOMORI’s Ocumare Chocolate, or: chocolate has a personality.
In this cold month of the year, we propose a sweet treat: drown a scoop of caramello al sale gelato in a nice glass of dark hot chocolate - or even a nice glass of milk chocolate or “bacio” chocolate – which our collaborators will “garnish” with torrone di nocciole shreddings in order to add a little bit of crunchiness to this delicacy, so even you can “drown” in a sea of sweetness for just a minute!
