The Starbucks Caffe Americano starts with a base of two or three shots of Starbucks' signature Espresso Roast. Hot water is then poured over these freshly pulled shots, resulting in a layer of crema on top.

The result is a wonderfully deep and delicious coffee experience that's both invigorating and satisfying. Whether you prefer it straight up or with your favorite milk or sweetener, this versatile drink can be tailored to suit any palate.
