My name is Mike Jones, and I'm a barista at Third Rail Coffee right by Washington Square Park in New York City. I'm going to teach you some basic coffee-making skills.

I'm going to show you how to make an Americano. Americano is a really simple espresso drink. All it is is simply a shot of espresso and hot water. There are a few different ways you can go about assembling these two together. You can either just have the shot of espresso and add the hot water over that, which I think is an inferior way of doing it because it will break apart the espresso. What I like to do is just start off with a mug of hot water, pull the espresso, and then just pour it slowly over that. So I'm going to go ahead, pull that shot. So we have our espresso, we have the hot water—just pour that slowly over there. And easy as that, that's an Americano.
