A long black coffee

A long black is a style of coffee, commonly found in Australia and New Zealand. A long black is made by pouring a double-shot of espresso or ristretto over hot water. This order of preparation is the opposite of the Americano (where water is added to the cup containing espresso), and thus preserves the crema. Usually the water is also heated by the espresso machine[1].
