Granita al caffè

Italian Iced Coffee

Preparazione 15 min
Cottura 3 h
Tempo totale 3 h 15 min


  • 600 ml freshly brewed coffee
  • 200 ml milk
  • 400 ml di water
  • 450 g di glucose which can be substituted: sugar or honey will do
  • 1 vanilla pod


  • With these ingredients, I have prepared two diffetent granitas, one with plain moka coffee and the other one "cappuccino" flavored.
  • In a big moka, if you have one, brew some coffee and measure the necessary amount: I used 400 ml coffee + 400 ml water + 200 g glucose for the iced coffee, and 200 ml coffee + 200 ml milk + 200 g approx glucose for the iced cappuccino. The amount of glucose is pretty much a matter of taste, so please taste the coffee to check if it's sweet enough before moving it into the freezer!
  • In a metal bowl mix all the liquid ingredients and add the vanilla pod, cut lenghtwise, then let the cofee rest for a while, until it goes back to room temperature.
  • Move the bowl in your freezer and let the cofee rest there for 3 to 4 hours, taking care of breaking all the ice crystals with a fork by mixing the coffee every hour or so.
  • When your granita has the right texture, transfer it in glasses and serve it straight away, before it melts!
