This easy dessert recipe is Cuba's answer to sno-cones. Use freshly brewed strong coffee if possible, but morning leftovers work too--just heat 4 cups of coffee with the sugar until the sugar dissolves. If you prefer your coffee with a little cream, try the granita with a splash of evaporated milk on top.
Make Ahead Tip: Freeze for up to 1 week. Let stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving to soften slightly.
