How to make granita:
Into a rectangular and wide (but not too much) container (please, important: read the post for more information), combine the espresso and sugar and whisk to let the latter melt.
Close the lid and put into the freezer. After an hour or so, stir the mixture with a fork. You should already see ice "grains".
At this point I transfer the icy mixture into a taller glass-like container, so it's easier to stir (actually, shake).Remember to stir periodically, until you get a granita consistency. Always make sure too stir the hard edges too.
After a few hours, depending also on the temperature of your freezer, it should be ready. Serve with a sprinkle of cardamom powder or cardamom scented whipped cream.
