Long Black refers to an espresso based coffee drink made with one or more shots of espresso pulled directly on top of a cup partially filled with hot water. ( The amount of water may vary by location.)

The listing above is for a long black made with a double shot of espresso.

A quality long black will display the rich coffee crema floating on top of the cup.

A long black usually has a strong flavor, but is weaker than straight espresso, but stronger than an Americano which uses more water. 

Some cafe's will serve a long black with extra hot water so that the consumer can adjust the flavor to his/her exact preferences.

A long black is most commonly found in Australia and New Zealand but can be found in select cafes worldwide.

Those with in home espresso machines can easily make a long black at home.
