Use these wonderful Irish products to make this after-dinner dessert cocktail from Italia.


Vanilla Ice-cream
Robert Roberts roast & ground coffee
Avonmore Whipped Cream (optional)


In a large caffetière, add 7 heaped dessertspoonfuls of ground coffee.  Boil the kettle. Allow to cool for 60 seconds.  (Boiling water kills the aroma of fresh coffee and can make it taste bitter).  Pour enough water to ¾ fill the pot. Let the coffee stand for 5-7 minutes then slowly push down the plunger.

Add 2-3 scoops of your favourite vanilla ice cream into small bowls, and pour some hot coffee over each.

Serve immediately!

Add a spoonful of fresh Avonmore whipped cream for an extra-decadent finish!
