English term or phrase: dispense the shot
Temat robienia Americano w ekspresie do kawy.

"Add the appropriate amount of hot water into the cup and dispense the shot on top of hot water." - normalnie rozumiałbym to jako "nalej kawy na wodę" ale później jest inne zdanie: "Dispense twice the normal amount of water through the shot and complete with hot water", więc ta kawa coś mi nie pasuje.

Americano
In a nutshell, the definition of an Americano is a shot of espresso diluted with hot water. You probably at this point are thinking to yourself, “Well, isn’t that just normal coffee?”

However, the resulting beverage, when hot water is added to dilute an espresso, is not identical to that of coffee. Espresso has a different flavor than, say, drip-made coffee. Therefore, when you combine some hot water with an espresso, the resulting beverage takes on a more espresso-like flavor, even though it has about the same strength as “normal American coffee.”

Most espresso connoisseurs agree that an Americano has a different (and much better) flavor.

Reference: shot

Reference information:
Generally, one uses an espresso machine to make espresso. The act of producing a shot of espresso is often termed "pulling" a shot, originating from lever espresso machines, which require pulling down a handle attached to a spring-loaded piston, forcing hot water through the coffee at high pressure. Today, however, it is more common for the pressure to be generated by an electric pump.

The single shot is the traditional shot size, being the maximum that could easily be pulled on a lever machine.

The length of the shot can be ristretto (or stretto) (reduced), normale/standard (normal), or lungo (long)
