A demitasse is a small cup (typically about 2 or 3 fl oz / 60 ml) used to serve turkish coffee or espresso. The word means half cup in French. It is half of a full coffee cup called a tasse (120 ml / 4 oz). Typical design in the west is a white porcelain cup (appearing similar to the cups in a child's tea set) with matching saucer, although some coffeehouses also sell brightly decorated varieties. Some coffeemakers, such as Illy and Thun, have made the cups into art objects. Another type of demitasse is a glass cup set into a metal frame.
