Coffee and ice cream: perfect combination

You may love ice cream as much as you love coffee. For this reason, perhaps you have wanted to find the perfect combination between the two, but in your locality it is not easy at all. From Café Hampei, we want to tell you about two delicious recipes to enjoy coffee and ice cream in the same glass. Without a doubt, this combination will enhance the best of our favorite flavors.

Homemade coffee ice cream

Have you never dared to make ice cream at home? The recipe for homemade coffee ice cream is very simple and its preparation will take you just a few minutes. Of course, if you do not have much patience or prepare it for the little ones at home, you have to keep in mind that it will not be ready for a few hours. Our recommendation: prepare your coffee ice cream at night and get up very early to have it for breakfast in the morning. 

Ingredients for 1 L of coffee ice cream

  • 2 cups of whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons of soluble or instant coffee
  • 1 medium can of condensed milk


Take the two cups of cream (cold) to the blender and blend until very thick. Then, in a small glass, mix the coffee and water until it has completely dissolved and there are no lumps or remains of coffee powder. In a bowl, combine the condensed milk and the coffee that you have previously prepared, stirring it well and carefully with a rod. Little by little, add half of the whipped cream and continue mixing the ingredients. When they are integrated, add the other half of whipped cream and transfer the mixture to another container when they are well integrated. Now take it to the cold covered with shrink paper for at least eight hours. This way, your coffee ice cream will be ready and waiting to be devoured in minutes.

Have you ever poured coffee over your ice cream? Well, it’s more common than you think. Aflogato is the Italian name given to this delicious… Dessert or drink? It consists of the mixture of freshly brewed coffee with ice cream and we can assure you that the result is like a magnificent whey with the perfect temperature. Dare to try it!

Iced coffee ingredients

  • 4 scoops or two scoops of your favorite ice cream (we recommend vanilla, chocolate, or the same coffee)
  • 2 cups of freshly brewed espresso


Prepare your espresso coffee as you normally do and let it rest for about three minutes. Meanwhile, serve the ice cream in your cup or mug and add any ingredient that you like and that add a sweeter flavor to this dessert; some baristas add dulce de leche, caramel or chocolate syrup. When it’s ready, pour the hot coffee over the ice cream and enjoy this delicious dessert at the same rate it melts.
