  1. An Americano is among the easiest coffee beverages to make, assuming you have access to an espresso machine. It is a fresh espresso shot, diluted with hot water. This can be done with different ratios of espresso to hot water, but you may try 5oz of hot water for every 1oz of espresso. In other words, for a 12oz Americano, you’d do 2oz espresso and 10oz hot water.

  2. An Americano is hot water poured over an espresso. In Australia you can also get a Long Black which is a shot of espresso floated over water at 94 degrees, and while they may appear to be the same they actually taste very different. The Long Black is smoother and less likely to be bitter from overheated water.

  3. From my article, The Americano: the barometer for judging any coffee shop or espresso bar
    “…The recipe is simple: espresso brewed directly into the hot water, which is already residing in the cup.
    “What about espresso first, and then add water?” No.
    “Or maybe pull shots into shot glasses or some funky pitcher looking thingamajig and then pour over the water?” Again, that would be a “No.”
    But for the Americano to work, your water should never be hotter than your espresso . Water temperature, relative to brew temperature, altitude, etc. should be as low as 170 F (77 C) or less (ours is at 162 F) for the best results. Once the espresso exits the group head, it has already dropped several degrees by the time it hits the water. Another thing is – your espresso, and the resultant Americano needs to have body and texture. The proper amount of lipids and oils are necessary for good crema density, texture, and mouthfeel. Without them, result is the same as a weakly brewed cup of coffee. A thin, watery, espresso-like concoction is not an Americano. It’s just a bad drink.

  4. Although it’s much of a muchness the Americano is made differently to a long black and that is:
    Extract a shot or two of espresso into the bottom of a cup and then pour near-boiling water on top.
    A long black is just the inverse (water first then extractions on top).
    My personal preference is the lon…

  5. An Americano is simply hot water and espresso. An Americano in the United States can be served with various amount of hot water, depending on the customer’s preference.
    I recommend pulling the shot directly into the hot water, so the customer can see the nice crema of your perfectly pulled espresso shot!
