What's with the coffee at Cafe Gitane? Help me out.

Pardon my naïveté, but I just can't figure out what's with the coffee at Cafe Gitane. It's so delicious! I've only had their Americano, but it's not like any other I've had. An Americano, if I'm not mistaken, usually contains equal portions of espresso and water. Yet Gitane's Americano is vastly more textured and less voluminous than the norm. What's up? I'm familiar with Turkish coffe, French press, etc. but can't figure out how they make it. And I'd love to hear what if anything people know about their blend. And just how uncouth am I for dropping that cute little morsel of Belgian chocolate into my coffee for a makeshift mocha? :)
