  • Step 1.

    In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, cream, and half the sugar. Heat over medium flame until the mixture is warm and the sugar dissolves.
  • Step 2.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the remaining sugar until the mixture is thick and pale.
  • Step 3.

    Gradually pour the warm milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from scrambling.
  • Step 4.

    Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Step 5.

    Remove from heat and stir in the dissolved espresso or coffee until well combined.
  • Step 6.

    Pour the mixture into a bowl and place it over an ice bath to cool quickly. Once cooled, cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 2 hours.
  • Step 7.

    Once chilled, pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Step 8.

    Transfer the gelato to an airtight container and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Serve chilled.
