6 Oz Coffee Cups

Assuming you’re talking about USA usage, you’re correct, a “cup” is usually 6oz. In the USA, the standard size for a “cup” of coffee is 6oz, even though nobody drinks cups of coffee that small (12oz to 20oz is more common). For that matter, the size of a “cup” of tea can be 5oz or 6oz when the number of “cups” a teapot holds is listed; a “6 cup” teapot is only 32oz. However, be careful how the word is used in American recipes. If a recipe calls for a “cup” of coffee, they are more likely to be calling for an 8oz cup, rather than a 6oz cup. I can’t find a clear reference as to where the unrealistic 6oz measurement for a cup of coffee started. Likely it was some episode of cost-cutting validated by Federal regulation — or possibly the result of Mr. Coffee — but we’re stuck with it as customary now. However, even though a 6oz cup of coffee may be customary, specific coffee maker manufacturers may use different measurements on different models, including cups as small as 4.2oz. So don’t assume unless you’ve checked. Oh, and also note that the 8oz cup is American, rather than Imperial measurement. An Imperial cup is around 10oz, although you’re unlikely to encounter this measurement in any recipe published after World War I. Confused yet?

I just bought a 3 cup French press. I brewed it according to 3 cups of coffee grounds for a 6 oz cup, and it turned out that the press considers a coffee cup to be 4 ounces! Today's coffee was particularly strong. So, the press makes 3 cups at 4 oz, 2 cups at 6 oz, and 1.5 cups by Imperial standards. Yuck! – Joe Plante May 18 ’15 at 20:46

If you buy a boxed set of place settings, they come with these teeny little coffee/tea cups that collect dust at the back of your cupboard. For some reason, these useless things have become the standard size for coffee, even though no one uses them. – Chris Cudmore May 13 ’13 at 20:52

For example: if you have 1.2 ounces of coffee (by weight), you would multiply 1.2 times 16.0 to get 19.2 fluid ounces of water needed. If you’re using the metric system, 92.6 grams of coffee would require 1562 CCs (1.56 liters) of water. Use the inverse factor to determine the amount of coffee to use with an unlisted amount of water.  In other words, you multiply the inverse factor times the amount of water to determine the weight of the coffee to be used.

From The Professional Chef (by The Culinary Institute of America), p. 1165: 1 measuring cup holds 8 fluid ounce (a coffee cup generally holds 6 fluid ounces) So indeed, the unit ‘cup’ is different from the standard coffee ‘cup’. I wouldn’t assume a coffee cup always to be exactly 6 oz, there might be variation from brand to brand. There shouldn’t be any variation in the cup unit though.

Given the cultural variation in coffee preparation, it would be useful to make your context explicit. (I presume it's the USA, since you're talking about ounces, but one can never be sure). – Peter Taylor Jul 14 ’12 at 19:31

My Keurig coffee make has markings for small, medium, and large cup. They are equivalent to 6oz, 8oz, and 10oz respectively. – smcg Jul 15 ’12 at 3:35

Also note that “oz” varies. An imperial fluid oz is 28.413 ml, whereas a US fluid oz is 29.573 ml. What's for sure is that if I want to make one cup of coffee, I put more water in the machine than the “1 cup” level. – slim Feb 6 ’13 at 13:15
