Topic: Americano - One Shot, One Kill (6 msgs / 203 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Hey folks,
Thanks for the helpful advice with respect to pulling shots and most
recently, making an Americano.  I just dragged myself into the house
after working outside all day and decided to give is a shot (hehe).  I
fiddled with the Gaggia to get the temp I wanted and nailed the shot -
95% crema!  Poured into my larger Bodum Assam glass (purchase from our
hosts), added water just a bit off boil and stirred with one of my
sons plastic baby spoons that changes color when it gets too hot.  The
Moka Kadir Americano cam out creamy, silky, smooth ... wonderful!
Eddie

I usually rinse a 6-oz tulip-shape cappa cup with boiler water, pour  
it about half full from the same hot water tap, and then pull a  
double into it.  I love to watch the crema hitting the water, and it  
seems to taste better than when I pull the shot first and then dilute  
it. (Crema stays undisturbed too).

Sandy,
That sounds nice!  I think I will try that with my Americano in the 
morning.

non-functioning over the wkend. thought the title said, "American - one
shot, one killed.."
Think that showed I was in a real negative state of mind!!
