What is a coffee granita you ask? Its a frozen drink made from used coffee grounds.

Ingredients


To serve
  • 300ml/10fl oz double cream

  • 1 vanilla pod, split lengthway, seeds scraped out

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

Preparation method

  1. Put a shallow baking dish (about 1litre/1¾ pints capacity) into the freezer.

  2. Stir and dissolve the sugar into the coffee over a low heat. Set aside to cool.

  3. Pour the coffee mixture into the dish and freeze for 40 minutes. Check to see if there are any ice crystals forming around the edge. If there is, gently bring them into the liquid centre using a fork. Place the granita back into the freezer

  4. Have another look again in about 20 minutes and repeat the same process as step 3. Keep doing this until the entire mixture is a mass of coffee crystals with no remaining liquid parts. Once this has been achieved, tip the granita into a plastic, lidded box and store in the freezer until needed.

  5. Place the cream, vanilla and icing sugar in a large bowl. Add a handful of crushed ice and whip the mixture until a dropping consistency.

  6. Serve the granita in pre-chilled glasses with the whipped cream mixture.

Italy is well known for it's love of espresso coffee, and in Italy you don't ask for an espresso you ask for a Lavazza coffee. Luigi Lavazza developed his unique blends of different coffee's from around the, roasted to exactly the right level to bring out all the flavour without burning the beans. His blends and roast profiles are still used to this day - one of the reasons Lavazza Coffee is so popular is that each of their coffee blends tastes the same year after year.

Famously known as Italians favourite coffee, Lavazza espresso won't disappoint. Whether your looking for a high quality espresso bean to improve the taste of your coffee or are looking to start providing espresso for your customers Lavazza beans are a wise investment. They rival the beans available in popular coffee high-street chains and are sourced from the finest beans in Brazil, Central America and Asia. The smooth, rich taste of Lavazza is great for milk-based drinks popular with UK customers, but is also delicious as a straight espresso -which is how they drink it in Italy.

 

Lavazza imports coffee from around the world. Countries include Brazil and Colombia in South America, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Honduras in Central America, Uganda in Africa, Indonesia and Vietnam in Asia and the United States and Mexico in North America. Sustainable production concerns have led the company to develop the ¡Tierra! project, a sustainable agriculture program in Honduras, Colombia, and Peru, that seeks to improve the quality of coffee as well as the environmental and working conditions of those communities.[4]

Branded as "Italy's Favourite Coffee," the company claims that 16 million out of the 20 million coffee purchasing families in Italy choose Lavazza.[2] Among its offerings today are products such as Top Class, Super Crema, Crema e Gusto, Grand'Espresso, Dek (decaffeinated), and coffee pods A Modo Mio.
