What is lungo coffee?

Meet lungo, the brother of Espresso! Espresso and lungo may not be twins, but you can refer to them as brothers. A lungo is an extended espresso, using coarser coffee beans and twice the amount of water that is used to brew an espresso. A normal serving of espresso measures 25 to 60 milliliters, while a lungo might measure 130 to 170 milliliters. Although Espresso and Lungo may have a similar personality. a lungo manifests more complex flavors due to the modification in the brewing process.

Lungo vs. Americano

Both of these fan favorites may seem similar at first, but if you look a little closer, it will be much clearer how the two differ. The Americano is simply an espresso with water added after the brewing to dilute the intensity of the flavor. To contrast, the lungo has more water added during the brewing process resulting in a more developed, bitter flavor.
