Cafe Americano is made by adding hot water to an espresso shot. The water dilutes the espresso a bit, giving you the volume of a drip, but with an espresso taste.

  • hot or almost boiling water
  • espresso machine
  • scale
  • grinder
  • tamper


  • Measure out your beans for a double shot. Grind them really fine.
  • Tamp the beans, then put the portafilter into its spot on the machine.
  • Make the espresso.
  • Heat up the water to 160-170 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Pour the espresso into the hot water, mix 1 part espresso to 2 parts water.
  • Enjoy americano.
