The Americano and the Long Black are exactly the same in terms of content. The only difference lies in the order that the ingredients are mixed in. 


There are a few origins for how the "Americano" came to be, and the one we like the most originates during wartime.  


American soldiers didn’t have access to good coffee in a warzone, so they'd prepare coffee in pots, using fire. No grinder. No scale. No thermometer.  


The result would be so bad that they would end up adding water to dilute it until it was drinkable. Hence the "Americano". 


Today it means an espresso shot first, and hot or cold water second. For the long black, the water goes in first, topped off with an espresso shot.
