July Active Rain Challenge - Savory Affogato Recipe

Services for Real Estate Pros with Marketing Advisor & Squeeze Mortgage NMLS# 377413

July 18 is National Ice Cream Day so for this month's Active Rain Challenge, I want to share this ice cream recipe that will make your dessert even more savory.


In addition to helping home services, real estate, insurance, home inspection and other companies with the websites, video production and getting found on Google, I also am an owner of Grumpy Goat Coffee Company.

We make freshly roasted, single-origin and gourmet grade coffee both exciting and approachable for everyone. 


We carry coffee origins grown at high altitudes around the world including Africa, Indonesia, Central & South America.


Fully traceable means that we know where the beans are coming from.


We know when they are harvested, when they’re sent to the washing station, when they’re set afloat.


We know if they have certifications like USDA certified organic fair trade. In terms of single origin, it’s a lot like wine.


We know the regions, we know the altitudes, we know the varietals that make up the coffee we bring in.


Grumpy Goat has done several collaborations to make recipes with ice cream producers, microbreweries and chefs. We have great recipes for preparing meats with coffee dry rubs too.


For example, we created Grumpy Coffee Chip ice cream with Tipsy Cow Ice Cream in Bonita Springs, Fla.  Tipsy Cow is located in the Prado Shopping Center next to the movie theatre.


One of our favorite coffee treats is Affogato.

Try Affogato for yourself! It's easy.


- Dark chocolate shavings and chopped hazelnuts
- Ice cream (Chocolate or vanilla)
- 1 shot of espresso
- 3 tbsp of strong brewed coffee (preferably Grumpy Goat Coffee)


Place 2 small scoops of ice cream (coffee, chocolate or vanilla) in a coffee cup, then pour in a shot of espresso or 3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee. Top with shaved dark chocolate and chopped hazelnuts.

Hi Kathy Streib - Yes, do try  it! We do free shipping anywhere in the country when you order 2 pounds so hope you give us a try. This morning we just sent 45 pounds of fresh roasted coffee to the rescue workers and volunteers at the Surfside condo collapse.

I like the name Grumpy Goat, although I have never met a goat that was not grumpy, haha.  Then again, I have not met a lot of goats in my lifetime.

They're less grumpy after they've had their coffee, sort of like us humans.
