An Americano is a relatively new classic in the large Italian espresso selection, for legend has it that it only became popular when American soldiers thought that the traditional Italian espresso was just a tad too strong, so when they went to a café in Italy, they often asked it could not be diluted with a little extra hot water in the cup.

It turned out to be a popular concept, for an Americano is today among the most widespread and popular espresso varieties. So, if you're into espresso, but might at times find that the taste is a little too intense, an Americano is a good alternative.

And since more water is used in an American than in an espresso, it also makes room for a larger cup size, which is also seen here, as these pods brew a cup of as much as 230 ml.

The coffee that has been packaged in the pods for this variant is created on medium-roasted Arabica beans from South America and East Africa. This has resulted in a mild coffee with fruity and floral notes, which with its mild character means that it can be enjoyed clean as it is, so you can choose to completely ignore milk and sugar.
