Sometime all you want is a simple coffee. The Americano is the only option in many places when you want this. They rarely have fresh filter coffee ready, so it is quicker to get the espresso based drink.
I rarely get the Americano as I sometimes find it a bit rough. I like strong coffee, but I would choose a milder bean to make black coffee over a latte. Unfortunately this was the case with this one from Costa. Luckily they give you a mini jug of milk to add as you wish. I put the whole this in after a few sips 🙂
I love that this coffee is simple though. No frills, just coffee.
Overall this is worth it if you just want plain coffee, but it is strong, so not for the faint hearted coffee drinkers. 🙂
