Are 6oz cups really 6oz's?
On Google I read that 6 fluid ounces is 177ml
I measured my 6 ounce double-walled coffee glass...I also measured a 6oz take-away paper cup
...they measured to 250ml (that's with water filled to the very top)
Perhaps it's assumed that they mean 6oz a cm from the top, but I don't see a marking on my glass
Anyone know anything about this?
I always thought 1 oz of liquid was 30ml , the standard measurement for 1 shot
Roughly speaking you are correct. It also depends on whether you are using UK (imperial) measures or US measures.

so 6 fl oz (Imp) = 170.47 and 6 fl oz (US) = 177.44 ml.
I'd say the cups are designed to be roughly filled to the 70% mark to achieve the 6 oz without the risk of spillage.

Hmmmm! lets see how this one develops.
Suspect the cups are 6oz plus one or two oz spare to avoid spillage etc
Although there is the other school of thought that in the US, 8oz is considered a standard cup. Just to add to the confusion,
thx for the replies
