Regular or Large?

May 30, 2007

This is probably one of the most heard questions in any coffee shop. When you decide to order a large coffee instead of your usual regular then you expect it to taste the same. But this is often not the case and you might wonder why…

Most coffee shops have 1oz of espresso in a regular drink. And usually a regular drink is around 8 to 12oz and a large 10 to16oz. The large drink will have 2oz of espresso. See the problem?

The espresso is doubled but the size of the drink is only increased by maybe 50%. This makes the larger coffee often a lot stronger than the regular.

The problem can be resolved to add, for example, only 1,5oz of espresso to larges coffees.

We recommend cup sizes of 5,5 oz and 11 oz.
