You don't always get the coffee you pay for...

When you go into most coffee bars, in England and order the following coffee:

 You don't always get when you expect, but before I explain, when you order an Americano, it should come with a separate container containing cold milk. But at least 40% of the places I go to give hot milk, and 10% actually put the milk in before they give it to you.

Anyway I digress.

Most places where I order an Americano actually give me an Australian long black. On first glance this seems the same, but I can assure you, the taste is different.

I was in one of the larger chains and mentioned the difference and was told, yes, we know, but this is much easier to make, and it does give a stronger flavour.

So, in a nutshell, if your shop sells you a Long Black instead of an ordered Americano, don't complain... it has a stronger flavour!
