  • About


  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups hot, strong espresso coffee
  • 1 cup


Add the sugar to the hot coffee and stir until completely dissolved. Leave it to cool, then pour it into an ice-cream machine and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

If you have no machine, do as they have done in Italy since time immemorial: Pour the mixture into a shallow freezer container (it used to be in an old-fashioned ice-cranker) and freeze for about 30 minutes
