The Concept

 

Alfero Artisan Gelato is prepared with a mixture of high quality ingredients – milk, cream, sugar, eggs, fruits, chocolate, nuts, etc. with a high nutritional value. Italian gelato contains less fat than ice cream, has less incorporated air and is served at a higher temperature (-13 degree celsius). Our gelato provides a greater flavour experience because there is less fat that coats the tongue, more flavour per spoonful (due to less air), and the taste buds are more alive since the temperature is not so cold as to numb the sensitivity. The lower fat content also means fewer calories to burn.

 

 

The Gelato Machines

 

All Carpigiani machines are designed and built to comply fully with the international laws regulating safety and hygiene. They are also the world leader in gelato machines.

 

Pozzetto Gelato Cabinets

 

In order to achieve perfection during the conservation phase, a special cabinet called “pozzetto” is used to store the gelato where no air and light contamination would affect the quality of the gelato. With the use of Pozzetto, customers are ensured an unforgettable gelato experience with perfect consistency, smoothness and taste.
