Little history

Coffee may not contain sugar, but a spot of adoration is a must!

Coffee Americano (ital. Caffè Americano) is an espresso weakened by water with a high temperature. The proximity of the foam (cream) depends on how the coffee and water are mixed.

Attention! Try not to confuse the concepts of “American” and “American coffee”. In the subsequent case, we do not mean a weakened espresso, but a drink organized through a channel structure, the subsequent name is “Joe’s mug”.


In the United States, since the XIX century, the creators of trickle coffee were known. They use the channels. As indicated in the innovation, heated water is spilled through a layer of ground coffee through the channel. Subsequently, the coffee made in a trickle of coffee creator is called channel coffee. In all bars in America, guests were offered a so-called “Joe Cup” – a compartment with 220 ml of channel coffee, which took 5-7 minutes to prepare.

Towards the end of world war II, American soldiers who were liberating Italy from the Nazis tortured local bartenders with requests to arrange a “Cup of Joe”. The much-desired Italian espresso seemed too hard for Americans, and 30-milliliter bags after a huge Cup of channel coffee were just ridiculous. Over time, it turned out that the Americano flavor is very unique and largely depends on the way the fixations are mixed.

The new drink has already established itself as an authority in various European countries. Americano conducted amazing examinations, including milk, crushed ice, alcohol. There was a misconception: despite the fact that the drinks differ in taste and placement strategy, some baristas still stupefy American coffee, such as channel coffee, and American-weakened espresso.
