I can single-handedly blame affogatos for the severity of my caffeine addiction as a young adult, for without them, I probably never would have gotten into espresso. In this version, we’ve swapped out espresso for a hot matcha shot to make this bright and earthy green affogato topped with matcha KitKats and Pocky. While matcha still has caffeine, my fellow coffee drinkers know the effects are much more minimal, which makes this drink a perfect option for an afternoon pick-me-up.

How to Make It
