Starbucks Caffe Americano Review

Starbucks Caffe AmericanoCoffee - it's what's for breakfast ... and for a mid-morning snack, mid-afternoon pick me up, and post-dinner treat. People drink so much coffee that I sometimes wonder whether they would save time by just inserting a coffee IV (kidding, of course)! I'll admit, I too enjoy this warm, infinitely modifiable beverage, sometimes with milk and other times with cinnamon and Splenda.

I often find myself at Starbucks indulging in the Starbucks Power Protein Plate, Perfect Oatmeal, or Breakfast Sandwich, and I like to have something warm to go with my meal. I find Starbucks coffee to have a bitter, burned taste, which is why I switched to the Starbucks Caffe Americano. Freshly brewed with each order, this drink is a simple combination of espresso and hot water (it's not as strange as it sounds - after all, coffee has a lot of water in it as well). The taste is smooth and rich without being too overpowering. Plus, if you want it stronger, you can order an extra shot, and if you want it weaker, just order it in a cup one size bigger and get it with extra water.

Like coffee, the Caffe Americano is low in calories. Each tall (12-ounce) serving provides 10 calories, which means that each espresso shot has just 5 calories. If you order it caffeinated, you pick up 150 mg of caffeine; decaf has significantly less than that.

In the winter, a hot Americano is deliciously warming; in the summer, an iced Americano is the way to go. A tall costs $2.28 with tax in New York, which is about the price of a tall coffee. If you're a coffee lover, then try this if you haven't already.
