We were trying to make Americanos. We didn't get to Cafe Crema. The DeLonghi drops temp so fast after 2 oz., you end up with a Cafe Crema at 5 oz that tastes like an Americano. What was impressive was a 23 sec. pull. It was a very good espresso a nice 2oz shot.

Actually, unless I misunderstand you, you weren't trying to make Americanos, you were trying to make Cafe Cremas. An Americano is simply a regular shot of espresso with hot water added. A Cafe Crema is a 5-oz shot... Or did I misunderstand you?
