Huh???? No way! An americano is an espresso-based drink, probably made with beans that were roasted for espresso, while a drip brew would probably use different beans with a much lighter roast. The taste is so so so so different. I would very much like to see more single-origin DRIP. This would taste so much nicer than a watered-down espresso.
I tried a Harrar Americano for the first time this morning... really tasty, but I'd much rather have the spro straight.
Mmmm... I miss Harrar!

Treating brewed coffee as an afterthought makes me sad.
There are so many incredible beans out there that extract beautifully when brewed as coffee. Guess I'm just spoiled; brewing coffee by the cup and working with a roaster that has amazing SO beans. Our customers love it, especially the decaf customers.
But I guess this is just part of the move away from coffee shops to espresso bars.
