How to make an americano

Share with friends

An Americano is a bold and flavorful espresso whose strong flavors are tempered with hot water. To make an Americano using your Breville Bambino®, dispense the desired amount of hot water into your glass by placing it under the steam wand then press the 'Hot Water' button to begin the flow. Press the 'Hot Water' button again to stop when you’ve reached your desired level of hot water. (Six ounces is a good place to start.) Grind and tamp the coffee beans, then insert and lock the portafilter into the group head. Put the cup of hot water under the portafilter and press the '2-Cup' button to extract a double shot of espresso over the hot water, creating a perfect Americano.
