Americano or Long Black?

6 March 2015 Uncategorized

Here at Bean & Bud we serve Long Blacks, not Americanos. Sometimes it causes confusion or people are not sure what to order. So what’s the difference?!  An Americano is an espresso shot topped off with hot water, so the shot can be scalded and the crema dissipated.  A Long Black is made by gently pouring the shot over water that has been added to the cup first, thereby preserving the crema and the taste of the coffee, and also retaining more of the oils that form on the espresso shot and coat the tongue, therefore making it less bitter.
