DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine the coffee, sugar and cinnamon and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Whisk in 1/4 cup of the cream and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into a shallow dish and place in the freezer.
  • Using a fork, scrape around the sides of the dish every 30 minutes to break up the ice crystals until all the liquid is completely frozen, about 3 hours.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and keep frozen until ready to serve.
  • (The granita can be prepared up to 2 days in advance and stored in the freezer.).
  • Just before serving, using a handheld mixer, whip the remaining 1 cup cream on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes.
  • Divide the granita among 8 coffee cups with saucers.
  • Top each cup with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate shavings.
