An Americano is an espresso-based coffee beverage consisting of one or more shots of espresso and hot water.

Basically, an Americano was originally a way to mimic traditional American "brewed coffee" using an espresso machine.

It is similar to a long black espresso but usually contains more water and the hot water is poured on top of the espresso instead of the other way around for a long black.

Caffeine in Different Americano Sizes

The caffeine content of an Americano coffee all has to do with the number of espresso shots it contains. 1 shot equals on average 77mg of caffeine, so typically:

  • A 6-8 fl oz Americano would contain 77 mg
  • A 12-16 fl oz Americano would contain 154 mg (listed above)
  • A 20-24 fl oz Americano would contain 231 mg

Caffeine can vary in espresso-based beverages due to many factors including the quality of the coffee and preciseness of the barista.
