  1. Regular coffee is brewed by filtration which gives the beans a unique flavor (as do the different ways this can be done.) The end result comes out diluted similar to an americano, but with a much different flavor. Coffee made this way is usually made with a light, medium, or dark roast, but not as often with an espresso roast.)
    Americano is and espresso shot (1–3 oz of condensed rich coffee) diluted with hot water. An espresso shot not only gets the coffee differently by using steam/heat or pressure to force out the coffee from the bean, it also almost always uses a different roast (espresso roast; darker.)
    So in the end they look the same but taste much different.

  2. Believe it or not, the name “Americano” is a joke regarding how weak and watery most Americans drink their coffee. The rest of the coffee drinking world is aghast at what we consider coffee. No, when you order a cup of coffee here in America, you are NOT supposed to be able to see the bottom of the cup. Sorry.
    On the other hand, Americans think “lite beer” is actually beer, so it all makes sense.

  3. To make an Americano – shot(s) of espresso with hot water added (mixed in). The adding and mixing the water breaks down the body of the espresso. The method is designed to make an espresso coffee more like a bland, low body & relatively tasteless filter coffee – which is popular with Americans (hence the name)
