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?

Rick,
 
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.
