Smaller coffee cups all the rage

Finally take away coffee cups are starting to mirror the dine in coffee experience - as someone who mainly drinks magics and piccolo coffees myself, I wholeheartedly applaud the initiative!

I have a Keep Cup in the smaller size that is akin to a Piccolo... I wonder if they’re still available.

Yyyyyyes! Yeah great idea, it just makes sense. Am glad, although I can see how alot of people will see it as though it's just a money-saving thing.

Up here on the sunny coast at least a lot of vendors are offering 5oz 8oz and 12oz take away coffee sizes so the choice element is still there !

Yeah that's it, for myself and others it's more about taste, for others it may be about how much you get which is fair enough.

I’m also a fan of the mini (espresso) keep cup. An espresso gets a little lost and lonely at the bottom of a big takeaway cup.

We have a small takeaway cup option at work at the cafe. I think it’s 100ml or thereabouts. Works for espresso, macchiato etc.
I love coffee. It's as simple as that.
