Combine all ingredients for the berry compote in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil then let simmer for 20 minutes until compote reduces slightly and coats a spoon. Cool compote to room temperature (approximately 70 degrees) before adding to the ricotta cup.
Layer ¼ cup of ricotta cheese in the bottom of the bowl or other serving vessel. Top with ½ the berry compote and ½ tablespoon of pistachios. Repeat once more then top with the granola. Serve immediately.
Recipe Note: If making ahead, set aside granola and add right before serving.
