How to Make an Iced Americano

Learn how to make an iced Americano from the experts at Third Rail Coffee in this Howcast video.


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 gonna show you how to make an Iced Americano. The process for this is almost identical to the Hot Americano in that we're gonna pull the shot into the small cup here and then transfer it into water. Now instead of hot water, we're gonna just gonna be putting it over some cold water. Now you can do this any size you want. Traditionally, at a cafe it would be around 16 ounces. I like drinking them a little bit smaller, so I'm just gonna do that. I'm gonna start off by pulling the shot and getting that ready. Ok so we have the espresso ready. It looks delicious. We can just pour that over the cold water, and then finally add the ice. Just kinda swirl it around to get it cold, and that's an Iced Americano.
