Brew fresh, strong coffee with 5 cups water and espresso. Transfer hot coffee to a cake pan or shallow bowl, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Taste coffee and add more sugar, if you like. Set aside to let cool slightly then freeze, uncovered, for 1 hour.

Gently rake a fork across the surface of the coffee, breaking up any ice crystals in the middle and around the edges. Freeze 45 minutes more then repeat process with fork. Repeat freezing and raking process 2 more times until all of the coffee is frozen into flaky crystals. Spoon granita into bowls and serve.
