Go Right Now: Affogato Day At Elixr Coffee

Affogato-Birch

It’s fitting that a rainy day like this–when it’s impossible to go anywhere in Center City and not arrive feeling like a drowned rat–just happens to be the second (and final) Affogato Day at Elixr Coffee.

Elixr and Little Baby’s Ice Cream have teamed up to put forth this ideal mid-afternoon treat: a healthy scoop of ice cream affogato’d (“drowned” in Italian) in a perfectly pulled shot of espresso.

The folks at Elixr chose two espressos first, and then picked Little Baby’s ice creams to suit them, for a choice of two flavor combinations. The first is the crowd pleaser– Little Baby’s top selling Birch Beer and Vanilla Bean ice cream with Elixir’s house blended espresso. It’s big, round, and rich. Option two, Lime and Toasted Coconut ice cream (which also happens to be vegan) with a single origin Yirgacheffe coffee is a little more exotic. The espresso itself is light with pronounced citrus and floral notes further accentuated by the citrus in the ice cream, and balanced out by its richness.

The caffeinated confection will run you $4.50 and they’ll be pulling shots and drowning scoops at Elixr until 8:00 tonight.
