Caffè Leccese: iced coffee with almond milk

This one is a real treat. A summer coffee preparation traditional to Puglia, that became popular in every Italian coffee shop. It’s a mix between iced coffee and affogato, featuring the luscious addition of homemade almond milk. A sweet, satisfying, perfect break for a hot afternoon!
