Treating Your Espresso Right ...
Thanks Paul for listening to recent rant about getting Espresso's to go. Here's the skinny...
If you allow a properly prepared espresso shot sit for more than a minute, or let it get cold, it turns bitter-sour and nasty, and loses every good aspect it had to start with, aside from the caffiene.Thanks to Paul for being responsive to customers needs.
The water in an Americano will capture and hold the crema, flavor, and aroma of the espresso shot rather than letting it evaporate. It will also provide a good deal of heat to help preserve these precious qualities.

That said, I can't tell the difference between Americano made with fresh espresso versus 1hour old espresso.
But like a always say, consumers don't care about quality, that's why Wal*Mart and Microsoft do so well.
