Grind Barista & Co Coffee Beans to a fine consistency.
Extract an espresso shot using the Profitec GO coffee machine or similar.
In a saucepan, combine equal parts of brewed espresso and water (e.g., 1 cup of each).
Add granulated sugar to taste, starting with ¼ cup and adjusting as desired.
Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Remove the saucepan from heat and let the coffee mixture cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, pour the coffee mixture into a shallow, freezer-safe dish.
Place the dish in the freezer and let it sit for about an hour.
After an hour, use a fork to scrape and stir the mixture, breaking up any ice crystals that have formed.
Return the dish to the freezer and repeat this scraping process every 30 minutes for about 3-4 hours, or until the granita has a slushy, icy texture.
Once the granita is ready, scoop it into serving glasses or bowls.
Optional: Top each serving with a dollop of whipped cream for added creaminess.
Garnish with a few coffee beans or chocolate-covered coffee beans.
Serve immediately and enjoy the invigorating Coffee Granita.
Tips for Making the Perfect Coffee Granita

⭐ Garnish the Coffee Granita with a sprinkle of cocoa powder or a drizzle of chocolate syrup for an extra touch of decadence.
⭐ Serve the granita in chilled glasses or bowls to keep it icy and refreshing for longer.
