    Cup Size

    Hi Everyone

    What would be the perfect size cup for a Late, Using a dbl basket? Is there an exact rule on how many mls a cup should be for each drink?

    If its for home, whatever you want. 160mL Duralex Picarde with a double shot is perfect for me...but my partner prefers a single shot in 220mL.

    Ive got 250ml bormioli glasses, a double shot espresso topped with milk makes a great latte with good coffee/milk ratio :)

    I use a 235ml glass for flavour, and a bigger 320ml one when I want something for dunking Anzac biscuits in.

    Ok i think i get it,

    Shot size pretty standard, but milk varies the flavour of the drink. Ok so is there a prefered glass? the duralex ones look good!

    I use the 200ml Duralex for single shot cafe lattes, but my current fav tippple is a double ristretto cafe latte into my 220ml Rockingham cups

    I cant comment for other cups, but these are fantastic. I bought a pack of the 90mL ones on a whim to make up an order...and had to have the 160mL ones to go with them. For the price, they really cant be beaten. I dropped one the other day, and it didnt break (only on lino, but still). I just wish Jetblack Espresso still sold the 220mL ones, as Id get them too.

    Re: Cup Size

    I like my coffee as 50%coffee and 50% milk, so 60ml coffee and 60ml milk = 120ml glass :) OR a 150ml glass without pouring to the top.

    I use ACF tulips that are 140ml as I think they keep coffee marginally warmer.

    Again, a matter of taste.

    For me, it all depends on how strong-tasting the coffee is.

    I drink double ristrettos, and for a latte that goes into a 60 ml or 90 ml cup. That is then topped with steamed milk.
