It was back in the sweltering summer days of 2013 when the first Affogato Days simultaneously caffeinated us and cooled us. The pop-up partnership between Little Baby’s Ice Cream and Elixr Coffee was a natural fit. Perfectly-pulled shots of single origin espresso poured over scoops of ice cream from Philly’s most playful jockeys of the deep freeze. Now, some of the Elixir kids have decamped to start W/N W/N Coffee Bar, but this year, just like Wet Hot American Summer, the gang is getting back together.

And on the 8th day, there were affogatos.
On Friday August 15th and 30th the coffee lovers of Elixr Coffee and the sweet teeth at Little Baby’s Ice Cream are bringing back Affogato Days to South Sydenham Street.
What is an affogato you ask? It’s basically the divine marriage of hot, caffeinated espresso with frosty, creamy ice cream. When translated, the Italian drink literally means “drowned” referring to the dollop ice cream swimming in espresso. Yum- said every caffeine junkie and ice cream enthusiast everywhere.
The good people at Elixr Coffee want all of Philadelphia to experience this mouth-watering treat featuring Little Baby’s Ice Cream. The collaborators will choose two seasonal ice creams skillfully paired with two unique espressos for the affogato days special. Other great news? There will be both a dairy and vegan option available so everyone can bask in affogato greatness.
