i feel inspired by the sunshine to do a survey of iced americanos in portland. my budget will limit me to approximately one americano every two weeks, i fear, but here's what i have for you so far:
iced americano, 16 oz, to go. with a healthy splash of soy milk.
arabica: *perfect. $3.50
bard coffee: *perfect. $2.60
(i'm not being scientific enough, because i'm not positive how many shots of espresso are present in each of these beverages. so i may have to go back and re-survey both locations.)
*i think my scale will be terrible to perfect. where perfect = smooth, rich, crema-topped shots of espresso; a high coffee-to-water ratio; plenty of ice; and they let me pour the soy milk in by my own self.
