What is Italian Americano coffee?

Ever wondered what makes great Americano coffee stand out? Let's. dive into the world of this delightful brew, especially how at Peak Flavor Coffee we craft the perfect Italian espresso for an authentic Italian Americano experience.

Originally known as "caffe Americano", this espresso-based coffee dates to World War II when American soldiers in Italy found traditional Italian espresso too strong for their liking. Their solution according to the World Atlas of Coffee? Diluting espresso with hot water, giving birth to this unique coffee style. Today, Americano is celebrated for its balanced flavor, combining the intensity of espresso with the gentleness of hot water.

At Peak Flavor Coffee, we're passionate about creating the ideal Italian espresso for Americano coffee lovers. Our process is meticulous: we start by selecting a special espresso bean blend, optimized for Americano. Then, we roast these beans to enhance caramelization, ensuring a smooth, less bitter taste. Precision is key in grinding, and we aim for 98% accuracy to maintain the espresso's rich flavor without any bitterness.

The perfect Americano, in our view, involves two shots of our freshly roasted Italian espresso topped with three shots of hot water. This method, sometimes called an "Italiano," is our version of the Americano with Peak Flavor. It's all about preserving crema and delivering an espresso that 'floats' atop the water, offering a taste experience that's both authentic and flavorful.

Whether you're a coffee fan or new to Americano, remember: good espresso is the key to a great Americano. At Peak Flavor Coffee, we offer a special Italian espresso that enhances your Americano experience with its peak flavor!

Naturally Sweet Beans

Italian Americano starts with naturally sweet bean blends, sourced from plantations in highlands in Brazil, Honduras, and Vietnam. Beans that grow at altitudes above 2600m grow a little slower and therefore contain more natural sugars, such as fructose.

For abundant crema and gentle mildness, we add a small portion of high quality Robusta beans, which will make your stomach happy!

Crafting Italian Espresso for Americano Coffee?

At Peak Flavor Coffee, we're passionate about delivering the authentic Italian espresso experience, especially crafted for your Americano. Let's brew into the details!

Firstly, the heart of any great Italian coffee lies in the espresso used. We select naturally sweet bean blends, harmonizing them with robusta for that lush creaminess straight from natural coffee oils. This blend is key to achieving caramelization without a hint of bitterness – think of it as the espresso's sweet, creamy soul.

Italian roasting is an art we've mastered. It's a slow dance of heat and time, drawing out those delightful caramel, vanilla, and honey notes. Our espresso beans are roasted dark enough to bring out their intensity, yet we halt just before the first crack, ensuring no bitter or burnt aftertastes mar your sip.

Precision is our mantra when it comes to grinding. For that ideal Americano, we go extra fine - to 350 microns with 98% accuracy to be exact. This is crucial. It allows your espresso machine to dissolve and extract the rich coffee intensity,
making it sing through the water.

And here's a little Italian secret – freshness is non-negotiable. We roast in small batches and ship on the day of the roast, ensuring our Italian Espresso is fresh when you brew. Because we understand that Peak Flavor happens in the golden window between 8-14 days post-roasting.

So, for all you Americano lovers out there, dive into a cup of Peak Flavor’s espresso. It's not just coffee; it's an Italian love story in a cup. Discover the richness, the aroma, the sheer joy of a cafe Americano as it should be – authentic, flavorful, and oh so Italian.
