    Umm.... An americano is just water and espresso. No cream. Its just espresso that has been watered down to resemble drip brewed coffee.

    It's usually the same strength as a regular coffee, but it tends to be a very different flavor. I suggest just giving one a try.

    Yeah, watered down espresso still tastes different because it's made different. Regular coffee is made with hot water over coffee grounds, espresso is made by forcing steam through coffee grounds and it condenses as it passes through. I like the flavor of espresso better than regular coffee.

    This. Plus Starbucks brewed coffee always makes me jittery and headache-y.

    In the above comment, I meant my drink was an Americano and not an espresso. So it was the base of espresso plus equal amounts of cream and water all the way to the top of the cup. =x

    As others have mentioned it does have a bit of a different taste due to the way that it is brewed, plus it's super fresh.

    The reason it exists is because american GIs in europe wanted 'regular' coffee but it didn't exist there. So they got espresso that had been watered down. Hence it being called an Americano.

    Now, just like your regular coffee, you can add cream and/or sugar if you want but an americano itself is just water and espresso.

    Espresso hits me more on the back of the throat. Even watered down (which I do sometimes at work to extend my cup-of-something-hot-and-tasty pleasure), it still has that effect. It's almost acrid.

    Coffee, on the other hand, is more upfront.

    Espresso always tastes burnt and horrible to me, no matter how diluted with cream and sugar. Regular coffee is much nicer. Especially cold-brewed coffee. Mmm.
