How to Make Americano con Crema

Americano con Crema step 1
STEP 01

Make the orange syrup first. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add water, sugar and orange peel. Stir occasionally for 5 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain into a container.

STEP 02

Next, make the Americano con Crema. Froth the milk in a blender on high for 2 minutes, then let it sit for 1–2 minutes.

STEP 03

Prepare 2 shots of espresso and pour into a mug. 

We recommend brewing Starbucks® Espresso Roast via an espresso machine. If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can use a stovetop moka pot to make espresso-like coffee. To learn more, read our stovetop moka pot guide here.

 

You can also brew Starbucks® by Nespresso® Espresso Roast capsules for authentic café-style espresso.
