I know it's not the ideal way to get served an espresso. I am going
to do some coffee catering at a church fair and it would be too
expensive to buy lots of ceramic demitasse as well as impossible to
wash them. Anyone know where to get 4 oz or smaller paper cups in
quantities more like 100 than 1000?

Thanks.

My church has an espresso machine. We don't charge for our coffee as
we want to create a warm welcoming homey atmosphere. You would not
charge someone you served coffee too at your home would you?
Serving espresso does not cost significatly more that regular coffee
to serve. So, people have their choice between brewed coffee and
espresso drinks, one concession to cost, we do not use flavored
syrups, or whipped cream.

Most of the people drink brewed coffee or get cappucinos.

My local supermarket (Publix) sells small styrofoam cups that are
about 2 oz. They also sell the 4 oz Cuban coffee size.

It's a Presbyterian church, but 100 is more a guess at minimum
quantity that someone would sell in cups rather than a realistic idea
of how many straight shots we would sell. That number is probably
more like 5.

Thanks for the suggestions, folks. I will try brewing a couple into
unwaxed Dixie cups to see if that totally fails. If that doesn't work
I will do something like buy 10 ceramic ones and trust folks to bring
them back.

These are fun alternatives to paper cups in 4oz sizes and probably
less fragile than most demitasse:

If you belong to a church outside of Italy that can sell 100 shots of
straight espresso in an afternoon, I want the details. Conversion is
not out of the question.

Wouldn't Dixie cups work? They might not handle the heat, but they're
the right size and commonly available in various quantities.

Try restaurant supply houses like GFS.
