"The only thing better than eating ice cream straight from the tub is eating it drowned in a generous serving of Mr Black."

Charlotte Ree, Author of Just Desserts

If you’re a coffee lover, you’ve no doubt enjoyed an affogato. A traditional Italian dessert that is as simple as it is delicious. A hot shot of espresso poured over a decadent scoop of gelato. Bellissimo.

Our boozy twist on the affogato is the perfect dinner party hack.

To serve after dinner:

  • Select a coupette or rocks glass for each guest
  • In each glass, add 1 large scoop of ice cream
  • Add a generous pour of Mr Black
  • Top with something crunchy and sweet


Biscotti, amaretti, honeycomb, candied nuts, cacao nibs, chocolate shavings

This simple yet indulgent dessert is guaranteed to be a hit at your next dinner party


Mr Black was recently featured in the ultimate affogato offered at Firedoor in Sydney. Served alongside Gelato Messina and a housemade smoked butter biscotti. Pure heaven.

If you haven’t heard of Firedoor, we highly recommend the Chef’s Table episode featuring chef Lennox Hill. Netflix + affogato anyone?
