In the last few years, coffee drinkers have grown accustomed to seeing small, medium, and large sizing options for their cups. It may seem like a trivial detail, but when it comes to coffee, these new sizing options are important.
If you’re like many Americans, you probably measure your coffee by the cup. You might assume that if a cup of coffee has 200 milliliters of liquid in it, then another cup with twice the amount of liquid (i.e., 400 milliliters) would hold twice as much coffee.
But that’s not necessarily true. The different sizes reflect the variance in standard drinking vessels across different parts of the world. In fact, the smaller sizes were created because Americans tend to drink more out of small mugs than anyone else in the world.
So if you’re reading this article because you just learned that your favorite local coffee shop doesn’t carry a large or an extra-large cup – they only have medium and small – then maybe this info is useful to you!

What Are the Sizes of Coffee Mugs?
A standard coffee cup is 9 oz, while a standard coffee mug is 12 oz. If you are looking to buy coffee mugs, then keep in mind that standard coffee mugs are 12 oz, and a standard coffee cup is 9 oz.
The most important thing to watch out for when buying coffee mugs and coffee cups is the capacity. Most people don’t have any concept of the difference between coffee cups and coffee mugs. The coffee cups are smaller than the coffee mugs, and they hold less coffee.
You can also use a coffee mug for coffee if needed. You just have to make sure that the capacity of the mug is enough for the amount of coffee you need.
Keeping these facts in mind will help you make better-informed decisions when it comes to your daily cup of coffee! Whether you’re making coffee at home or ordering it from a shop, you’ll know what size drink to ask for. And you’ll be able to tell if the shop is trying to short-change you on the coffee!
