view glossary term online:
A French term used in reference to a small amount of rich, strong flavored coffee usually served after meals in a small cup called a demitasse cup. Beverages such as espresso are served in a demitasse cup that is signifcantly smaller in size than a traditional coffee cup. Due to the strength of the coffee, only a small amount of liquid is served in a cup that typically holds 2.5 to 4 ounces of liquid. The cup will only be slightly larger than an inch in diameter and between 1 to 2 inches in height.
