How do I make an Americano with my La Specialista?

An Americano coffee is an espresso based drink made with 1/3 espresso and 2/3 hot water. Americano is a preset recipe on La Specialista (Long Coffee in Australia). Before delivery, simply turn the recipe selector dial to Americano. La Specialista will deliver espresso first and then top up with hot water from the hot water spout. We recommend when making an Americano you use the double dose filter and utilize the X2 button, however, you can also make an Americano with a single shot.
