    How To Make Americano

If I look at the label and it says ZERO fat, etc, etc…I thought it was okay to intake. NOT. I was terribly mistaken. I discovered the ingredients on the back (yes, in the fine print) that says my favorite, once in a while go-to creamer was nothing but OIL. Yeah, no thanks.
