The Best Americano in Toronto

The best Americano in Toronto is simply a diluted espresso, similar in strength to drip coffee but far more delicious. This is an easy drink to screw up, and yet these coffeehouses excel thanks to skilled baristas, filter water systems, and fresh beans roasted from local and/or micro coffee roasters.

Here is where to find the best Americano in Toronto.
