Coffee lovers flying in Emirates’ First Class and Business Class can look forward to a refreshing brew with newly introduced cold coffee choices onboard.
Emirates will now serve the classic iced Americano, or the slightly more decadent Affogato to its First and Business Class passengers.
Affogato is a popular Italian coffee-based dessert made by pouring a shot of hot espresso over vanilla ice cream. Emirates says that it has ‘probably’ the world’s busiest café at 40,000 feet with nearly 28 million cups of coffee served in an average year across its network.
Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, and an evergreen beverage choice onboard Emirates across all routes and markets. Passengers often order a coffee when they need a pick-me-up during their flight, as a finishing beverage to their fine meal, or as an accompaniment to their cookies and snacks and expanding the coffee menu makes sense.
