Chilled glass, hard ball of icecream, pour a strong shot of espresso
over it. Drink with a spoon as espresso melts icecream.

I only discovered this drink a few weeks ago (admittedly, it is more
attractive in a Sydney summer than a Portland winter ;-).

What I've found interesting is the variation: each coffee shop does
it slightly differently (though non-serious coffee shops don't know
what "affogado" means). Some may use different flavours of icecream
(my favourite so far is vanilla with embedded "clusters" of coffee).
For more variation, pour some liqueur over the icecream.
