Topic: Shot Vs Americano (5 msgs / 88 lines)
1) From: Barry Luterman
I have been on stash reduction now for a while. A few weeks ago I
found an unopened 5lb bag of 2007 Nicaraguan Limoncillo estate-Java
Longberry. We have been drinking it for the past few weeks.now as
brewed coffee. I tried pulling shots from it a few times but found it
lacking and have used it only as a brewed coffee in the morning. Today
I accidental ground some up for a straight shot. When I realised what
I had done I quickly changed it into an Americano. It was excellent.
If I had to rate this coffee on a scale of 1 to 10. I would rate it as
an 8 Brewed, a 6 shot and a 9 Americano. Has anyone had the same
experience. That is, a coffee does much better as an Americano rather
than a straight shot?

This isn't quite the same, but I have found that an americano at *$ is
usually more palatable than their drip coffee, so I've taken to
ordering these when I'm forced to go there.

Yes but when you think of it  all an Americano is is only a watered
down espresso

Absolutely, many many coffees. Likely why Americano is my primary brewing
method for a cup of "coffee" versus espresso. OTHO just about any good
coffee can make an atleast halfway decent shot if you work the shot
parameters.

5) From: Scott Miller
Agreed.
I taste lots of coffees. I drink far more Americanos when it comes to the
"what do I want to drink" question.
Now, when the awesome Ethiopians are around, I do drink lots of that as
drip.
cheers,
Scott
