This was the best tasting iced coffee I've ever had. Since the flavors are extracted without heat, the results are a smoother, less acidic, less bitter product. You can use the coffee concentrate straight on ice cream or gelato for a classic Italian treat – affogato.

This was just what I needed today! I prepared the coffee last night and threw this together at lunch today (after my morning, this was definitely a lunch time deal, lol.) The taste was great, not too sweet and not the least bit bitter. I wouldn't change a thing. Definitely a winner in my book, I plan on fixing it again soon!

I loved this affogato, I had made it before using another recipe with hot coffee, but icecream melted fast, then when I tried this i chilled the cups brefore filling them,I could not believe the many flavors coffee can develop just brewing it using cold water, I just came back from the icecream shop and will have it handy so I can treat myself again! Here in Buenos Aires is super cold right now but I don´t care! Tiramisú icecream was my choice and It was fab. It is terrific, cheap, & easy to to.This is a keeper!
