Caffe Americano refers to a single or double shot of espresso poured over 6 ounces (180 ml.) of fresh hot water to produce a milder ("American-style”) coffee. Unlike the American coffee, the crema should rise to the top of the finished beverage. Caffe Americano is likewise an Italian term so named because it closely resembles American Coffee which is weaker than Espresso.
