Classic Americano

Ever wonder what makes an Americano different from regular old black coffee? Well, if you consider a double shot of espresso with water "regular" then there's your answer! The term was actually coined by Italian folks who noticed US soldiers adding hot H2O to their espressos during WWII. Looks like we're all about keeping it light and refreshing - even in the toughest of times!
