The Iced Americano is a refreshing, bold and bitter coffee drink! Here’s what it is and a recipe for how to make it at home.


  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 2 ounces (1 doubleshot) espresso
  • 2 tablespoons cold water (optional)


  1. Make the espresso: Make the espresso using an espresso machine, manual espresso maker, French press, or Moka Pot. Go to How to Make Espresso for instructions.
  2. Add the ice: Add the ice to glass. Pour the espresso over ice. Taste and add cold water, if desired (but the ice sufficiently dilutes the espresso so it’s not required).
