The Schlüssel to a Great American

The Americano’s base is a fine espresso shot. It is necessary to take this measure, as any inconvenience in the preparation of the expresso would cause a bad American.

This is because of the hot water that dilutes the oil in the coffee beans. This means that the resulting Americano makes the expresso taste sour if the Espresso is bitter.

We recommend that you tackle this problem:

Know how a big espresso is made. It’s ideal to use a great coffee machine.
Less strong coffee beans are selected. 100% Arabica beans are recommended. Let’s take a look at what you need to make your Americano at home.

You will need:

Hot water
Espresso machine, or a fresh double shot of espresso from your local coffee shop.
Coffee mug
Freshly ground coffee/coffee beans
Coffee grinder (if you’re using whole beans)
Kitchen scale to measure your beans/coffee grounds

The Steps Forward towards a Perfect Americano

Step 1: Good beans for coffee

It’s a personal preference for coffee beans. Although you have to have nice expresso beans to produce perfect Americano. The method of producing an Americano dilutes the espresso shot that amplifies any defects of the coffee beans.

Vice versa, both bean aromas and flavors can be enhanced as well. So get the coffee beans you know about and enjoy. Coffee beans are a personal matter. Beans are personal. However, you need decent espresso beans to make a good American.

We prefer full-bodied and tasteful coffee beans, but many other perform well. The point here is to choose your favourite coffee beans.

Step 2: What Bean Measurement

The next move is your drink measurement. A double Espresso shot for your Americano is recommended. For a double arrow, measure 14-18 g.

A single shot of espresso won’t suffice if you’re an American fan. Good Americano must be strong. Notice that we have to dilute the shots so it can be filtered by throwing a single shot.

Step 3: Coffee Beans Fine Grinding 

Your grinder is a vital instrument for producing delicious espresso, the first move to an Americano coffee

This coffee beverage is made with one or two espresso shots, as explained in the steps above. That says, you have to smear the coffee beans the way you would with an espresso.

For a perfect espresso, correcting the grind is necessary.


Step 4: Tamp The Grounds

Tamping is a key component of this whole process. On the market, certain machines tamp for you, and other machines do not.

Tamping is the method of combining the coffee soil to enable the water to absorb the coffee’s essential oils and aromas. This move is important for the Americans. If the computer tamps you or whether you have to do it manually.

Step 5: Making The Espresso

The next move includes brewing your espresso with your machine. Every espresso press is different.

Step 6: Water Heat Up

At the Espresso preparation. It’s time to get the water ready. There is some discussion of how hot an American’s water can be. Again, this is conditional on personal desire.

Too heated and cooling, which affects the taste takes very long. Too cold, and espresso consistency also decreases ( water temperature is essential to preserve the aromas of an espresso).

Step 7: Pour The Espresso Into The Water

The water/espresso ratio again relies on individual tastes. For a smooth Americano, we propose combining two portions of water with one portion of espresso.

don’t be rushing this part, slowly pour in the water espresso. You’re going to want to keep the espresso cream. Too fast to pour and some of the flavors.

Step 8: Enjoy your Americano freshly made!

An Americano without milk or sugar is normally served black. Everybody is different, though,
