There is no one on this planet that does not enjoy some Coffee Granita. The Italian dessert is simply a joy to both coffee addicts and dessert lovers alike. The semi-frozen delight is loosley related to the ever popular sorbet and italian ice. However, this treat is much more coarse and has a crystal-like texture that leaves a rough, but splendid taste on the tounge.

Pair this rough dessert with some coffee flavoring and you have caffeinated heaven. How do you make this delicious ice masterpiece? Esquire has the recipe on their page, but lets take a look at the ingredients before anything else.
