  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine coffee, sugar and vanilla extract. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 9x9x2” metal baking pan. Freeze for 1 hour.
  3. Remove the pan and stir the mixture, crushing any frozen pieces with the back of a fork. Cover and freeze until firm, approx. 2 hours.
  4. Using a fork, scrape the granita to form icy flakes.
  5. Divide the granita into bowls or champagne flutes. Garnish with a few coffee beans. Enjoy!
