Café Crema

Café Crema is similar to a long espresso drink except it has twice the amount of water and resembles an American Black Coffee. This drink is primarily served in southern Switzerland and Austria and northern Italy. The grind of the beans will be coarser which allows more water to flow through.

A Café Crema will be from 6 to 8 ounces of coffee. This drink is not common in many areas since it requires a different grind of the beans than a standard espresso and practice by the brewer to get a correct water to coffee balance. Instead, they may serve a Café Americano or a Long Black.
