Dining Etiquette – Demitasse Cup and Saucer

The word demitasse comes from the French language and means half cup. The actual size of a demitasse cup is half the size of a regular coffee cup. This small cup is used to serve strong specialty coffees such as espresso.

The demitasse cup is not included in the place setting of a meal and should be served after the meal on a small saucer.
