Matcha Affogato - latest trend in Japan
This is our new recipe, inspired by Japan's recent trend: Matcha Affogato. An affogato is an Italian coffee-based dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso. The latest Japan's trend is to use Matcha instead of coffee. Matcha espresso instead of café espresso. Enjoy the great combination of vanilla ice cream and Matcha sauce!
