Coffee Parfait

Coffee Parfait. It is an iced dessert invented in 1894 . The word parfait is of French origin and means perfect, perhaps whoever invented it discovered that the combination of its ingredients were exact and hence its name. It consists of an iced dessert that is made with two or more ingredients and is flavored with chocolate , coffee , liqueurs, etc. Its preparation is creamy and with an intense flavor, provided by the main ingredient that gives it its flavor , in this case coffee. Creaminess is given by the integration of a high fat content such as milk cream(or cream). Precisely this contribution, being abundant, does not allow the ice cream to crystallize, leaving it with the texture of a cream. In North America, the parfait is prepared with a combination of fruits and ice creams and they are used to serving them in long glasses, forming layers of fruit and cream that are easily distinguished.
