June 21st is the longest day of the year and the perfect night for ending a meal with an Affogato.
Just two ingredients: vanilla ice cream and espresso. When poured over the top, the dark coffee cuts the sweet, richness of the ice cream, creating an ideal balance.
Make an Affogato tonight—why sleep on the summer solstice.

We love David Chipperfield's re-design for Alessi with its flat lid for warming cups, and an elegant grey handle.
