Brew the coffee according to the preparation and strength of your desire.
In a small dessert glass or coffee cup, scoop the ice cream or gelato. Pour the hot prepared coffee or espresso over the top of the ice cream.
Serve immediately - serve while warm and melting. No need to stir, but you can serve it with a spoon if you'd like. The ice cream will melt right into the coffee so it is good either way.
Add 1 shot of whiskey, scotch, or your favorite liqueur.
Add a dollop of whipped cream.
Makes 1 serving.
* You could substitute any flavor of coffee you would like. Chocolate and coffee-flavored ice creams also taste great!
