Look, there’s only so many ways to say “it’s f**king hot right now”, so we’ll just leave it at that.
Now, your focus is probably on finding solutions to deal with the heat, rather than be fed a differently-worded-version-of-that-clip-from-The-Inbetweeners again. Well, we’ve got a pretty good one for you…
Free ice cream, even in winter, would be a godsend; but when it looks likely to hit 35°C at the end of the week, it really does feel like someone is answering our prayers. Namely, Caravan Coffee Roasters and La Gelatiera.
The craft coffee aficionados and the masters of gelato in London have teamed up to offer the sweltering London faithful free affogatos (a coffee and ice cream dessert) this weekend.
Celebrating the launch of the new coffee pods, there are three variations of affogato on offer, so let’s take you through them.
First up, we have the Decaf Classic Affogato — maybe it’s after 4pm, maybe you’ve had too much caffeine already; just don’t let yourself skip these affogatos for any such reason. This decaf version is equipped with chocolate brownie and maple syrup, combining to full effect with La Gelatiera’s creamy vanilla Mananara ice cream, which is made with vanilla pods from Madagascar.
The Daily and Cardamom Affogato promises a paradise of flavour, too; with dark chocolate hints colliding with baking spice and toffee apple, complete with caramel sauce, whipped cream, and a one-two punch of cardamom ice cream and cardamom dust. Sweet lord.
Finally, there’s the Market Vegan Affogato, which blends indulgent vegan dark chocolate ice cream with the fruity notes of the Caravan’s Organic Market blend, to create the ultimate free vegan ice cream dessert.
Drooling over the thought of getting one of these for free? I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a tad longer, as the offer is valid from July 16 – 17. Find it at Battle Bridge Place on Pancras Road from 10am – 4pm.
