The beauty of this dessert? You don’t actually need to book a ticket to Sicily to get enjoy its authentic taste.

One of our favorite granita-based recipes is the Coffee Granita with ricotta cream. The granita is the perfect base beverage to create original recipes with a variety of ingredients, including coffee.

To prepare this delicious recipe, we suggest using 100% Arabica coffee, such as the La Reserva de Tierra Brasile Filter, a full-bodied blend with aromatic notes of honey and chocolate.

This incredible frosty recipe is very easy to make! Give it a try!
