If you’re curious about learning how to become your own barista to save some serious cash, there’s no simpler drink to master than an Iced Americano.
Made with just 2 ingredients in less than 5 minutes, this espresso-caffeinated sipper is a fast alternative to iced coffee.
Pull espresso shots and pour over ice.
Add cold water to taste, stir and enjoy!
Taste first, then add water. If you’re someone who likes your coffee pretty strong, you may not need any more water than what will come off the melted ice.
Use freshly pulled espresso for the best flavor. I recently learned from a friend who used to be a barista that espresso shots significantly change flavor just 10 seconds after pulling them.
