Wake Up & Smell the Affogato, Copenhagen

Hello Copenhagen! We have a tasty little treat for you. After such a good turn out on our last event, we’ve decided to host another  The Coffee Collective and Istid affogato collaboration at Jægersbroggade Gadefest!

Starting at 11: 30 am on Jægersborggade 10 (outside of The Coffee Collective), we’ll be making affogatos (espresso with ice cream) with some of the best coffee and ice cream in Copenhagen. You need to be there.


The Espresso

Called Espresso no.2, this is a sweet, full-bodied espresso with notes of nougat and caramel in the aftertaste. This roast has a big mouthfeel with lots of sweetness.

It’s made up of:

  • 60% Daterra Sweet Collection, Brazil
  • 25 % Daterra Full Bloom Natural Process, Brazil
  • 15 % Kieni, Kenya

The Coffee Collective roasts these beans individually, with a medium-dark espresso profile, to create optimal balance between flavors, sweetness and acidity.

Drooling yet?

The Ice Cream

We taste tested multiple flavors to find out which would work best with the espresso. I know, I know. Our jobs are hard.

What we discovered is that simple is best. We’ve gone with the Classic Vanilla flavor. The ice cream is made from organic milk & cream from Øllingegaard. The vanilla is also organic and from Heilala.

You will have the option of having your affogato as-is, or sprinkled with chopped sea-salt and rosemary roasted almonds. There’s really no wrong answer here, folks.
