This refreshing Italian dessert or drink is a great way to delight your self during a hot summer day and also is great idea to make for those hot summers BBQ with your friends and family. The Coffee Granite is very popular drink in all Italy. To make this easy recipe you don't need to be a skill full Barista. Here is what you need


  • 4 cups hot, strong brewed coffee (we recommend our Tres Rios Gourmet Coffee - Costa Rica)  
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus sugar, to taste
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • Frangelico, or Amaretto to taste
  • Sweetened cocoa, to taste


In a pitcher or bowl, combine the coffee and the 3/4 cup sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Pour the mixture into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish or other shallow container. Place in the freezer. When the mixture starts to get icy around the edges, after about 1 hour, use a spoon to stir and break up the ice crystals. Return to the freezer. From that point, stir well every 15 minutes until the mixture forms fine, firm, icy flakes, 2 to 2 1/2 hours more.

In a bowl, using an electric mixer or a whisk, whip the cream until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar and brandy to taste. 

To serve, scoop the coffee ice into glasses or serving dishes. Top with the whipped cream, dividing it evenly. Lightly dust each serving with cocoa.
