Why is it that so many coffee places can not get making a simple Americano right?
This Americano from Caffe Nero is a perfect example of how it should be done.
Great espresso coffee topped off with hot water. A great coffee.
At quite a few coffee places I go to, they just get it plain wrong. The key is that the crema (that’s the froth on the top) adds so much to the coffee drinking experience and flavour. Lose that and the coffee is nowhere as near as good as it could be.
I quite like my Americano strong, now I could do that by asking for an extra shot, however as a cheapskate I ask for less water. You would be surprised by how many baristas have no idea what I mean by “not too much water please”.
I really enjoyed my Americano from Caffe Nero and would go there again.
