MORE ABOUT THE RECIPE

Caffè Americano is an Italian interpretation of “American coffee” that swaps out milk with hot water for a simple espresso drink that has become a staple at our cafés. Learn how to make the Starbucks® classic at home, all it takes is two ingredients and a steady pour.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

- 1 serving +
Brewed Espresso

HOW TO MAKE

Caffè Americano
STEP 01

Bring water to a boil and pour into your mug.

STEP 02

Prepare 2 shots of espresso.

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.

STEP 03

Slowly pour your 2 shots of espresso into the water.

DID YOU KNOW?

For an Americano, it’s best to pour the shot of espresso on top of the hot water to avoid breaking up the beautiful crema with your boiling water.
