    Americanos Taste Not As Strong As Coffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I use 15 grams and 5 oz of water and my Americanos do not taste as strong as regular coffee. Why is this?

    Using Compak K3 touch with Silvia and pulling ~32 second 1 1/2 oz shots.

    Because it isnt as strong as espresso?

    Because youre diluting it?

    Because theres more water in the drink?

    All of the above...

    no, as compared to a regular cup of coffee. not as compared to an espresso.

    With respect, nobody can even attempt to answer this question unless you are clear by what you mean by a regular cup of coffee. Do you mean a cup of Americano purchased from your local cafe? Are you using fresh beans, and are they roasted as darlky as the ones used in your reference coffee?* OK, so Ive just contradicted myself and attempted to answer the question.....


    Hang on, isnt 1/2 fluid oz, only 15mls?
    Cheers
