I like coffee very much, and to make the favorite liquid stay at her
best each time I brew it, a good looking coffee cup with proper size
is definitely required.
the question is what is the standard cup size for single origin coffee?

Thanks! I enjoy both espresso and single origin, I am still on the
journal finding my favoritest one that can reflect my mood. As I am
not from western country. coffee are, at least in our country, less
regarded a daily consumption than that of tea, but a more romantic
experience. all of you addressed my concern well. and I also learn a
lot here.

About the same size used for blends, I'd guess . . .

I like big mugs, 12 oz +.

My preference is for cobalt blue color, and a bit on the thick side with a
large and comfortable handle.

If this is not "standard" I could care less, it is what I like.

I also sense in the alternative coffee shops, stereotypically

interests;- I've virtually no tribal cafe experience to speak from.
Yes, indeed, Americans are big. I used to think I was pretty big,
too, but then they, the youth, seem to keep on getting bigger and
bigger. I'd suspect the national medial height figures may have
arisen again. Trouble is not only one of girth and intake, but taller
people as a whole. I've read medical premises inclusive of large as
tall, that the state is one of exacerbation requiring special need
exercised and due care as they age. Not that one needn't, as you say,
look at the end season roster for injuries from an American football
team. No doubt the tele is much vaunted as a role for a bigger,
better, faster, newer me to play;- veritable reams, no doubt, could be
dedicated to the subject. Reason enough, all the same, I'll consider
a fate I shared in my youth and early manhood overseas, in countries
effectively then without television, a boon. Dare I say, those were
scant times, when only books were left for companions. . . .

An 8-oz. cup will hold 6 oz. of brewed coffee very nicely. "Single
origin" coffees do not take up more or less room than blends.

For espresso, 2 oz. shot glasses or traditional demitasse, maybe up to
5 oz. Wider American standards, somebody drinking shots of coffee or
out tiny Arabic glasses in public is apt to get a second take.
Standard Am. drip brew or with water added, 6, 8 - 12 oz. mug size.
Latte/cappuccino I'd suspect varies, larger, but depending on the
country and what people drink. Single origin -- I'd say treat as
espresso to judge taste. Intent is also likely a factor of how it will
be consumed. Preground in a can on the grocery store isle for drip
brewing, a procurer may judge for an optimal, then dilute the origin
with water, also for intended consumption with sugar and milk (city
roast minimum and apt blent, which would bump it out of SO). How do
you drink it?

Why? I didn't think that the citizens of the USofA are
really that culturally or geographically challenged? ;))

An espresso (single) is 25ml of fluid, including the crema.
May be taken in a standard single 30ml or 1oz shot glass..
A larger glass size shouldn't really mean more liquid,
unless asking for a double espresso..

The usual cappa would be 'in' a 6oz cup, with only a latte
in something such as a slightly taller glass ..although a
step-up cup with a non-drip spout might be OK for a few...?

..but then, according to taste..

Then again, for the few, their self-worth may be in a v.large,
snout-sized Charbuck's fluid trough, with the label proudly
displayed so that the World and it's Cousins may vel at the
sophistication of the carrier...? ;))

Trouble is, it seems that anything big - or bigger - in the
USofA must always be filled. We've recently been looking at
a preponderance of the broad wobbling backsides that seem to
literally fill the streets of locations such as Dallas and
other Centres of Exce(ss)ellence. Just look at the 'image'
of so many 'American Idol' wannabees... ;'))

Sort of a wild overdose of 'SuperSize Me', to the possible
detriment of the native grazers...

We've been getting to see a lot of this, one way or another,
on TV over here. Mostly as a warning for we, not being saints,
are no less gullible and equally open to the abuse of competing
corporate chains... ;))
