The smallest of the four sizes of mugs & cups in the Keith Brymer Jones Word Range, these white espresso cups hold 70ml making them the perfect size for a single or double shot (doppio).

But there’s so much more to the classic espresso cup.

Traditionally an Italian espresso is served in plain white porcelain espresso cups because the white porcelain beautifully reflects the dark brown color of the espresso.

Although espresso is Italian, espresso cups are rarely referred to by their Italian name, “la tazzina”, outside of Italy. Around the world, the correct name for this style of small cup is a demitasse, because it’s not just for espresso.

What is a demitasse? The name demitasse originated in France and literally translates as half cup. It is half the size of French style coffee cup and typically holds between 60-90 ml (2-3 fluid ounces).

The Keith Brymer Jones white porcelain demitasse is an incredibly versatile cup to have in the modern home. The most familiar use may be as an espresso cup, but a demitasse is also ideal for turkish coffee, macchiato, ristretto, piccolo latte, and the rich, thick, italian drinking chocolate known as florentine. You can even serve a rich mousse in these classic white porcelain demitasse, for a quirky touch of style.
