Michael, the in-house sizes are good but for to-go I suggest you go with the more traditional 12, 16, and 20. 16 being the most popular to-go cup size there is. As far as your mochas go I would think you would want a bit larger sizes perhaps 10, 12, and 16. However it is starting to look like now you are in a position to have to carry every cup size there is which might not be a good idea or even feasable. Hope that helped.

Good luck to everybody.

I have owned one cafe and opening up a second soon but I need some advice from all of my brethren here. My in-house drinks will be served in 8-, 10- and 12-oz mugs, but how have all of your customers reacted to the to-go drinks served in the same size??? And now for my second question: what size do you serve your single, double and triple mochas in, both in-house and to-go? I appreciate all of your input!

Calling for the cooperation of Barista Training in any area out of China, based on the exclusively developed coffee theory by Kaffa Cafe. Such a training can guarantee the training by their effort, not feeling. Generally, in 15 days, the trainees can learn to do as a professional barista. The first courses in English might be in Guangzhou, the south of China, in this September.

You might try Visions Espresso in Seattle, Washington. They have a good selection of tampers with exchangeable tamp heads in a number of mm sizes.
Ask to speak to Samir or Klif. 206-623-6709
They also have a neat color brochure with decent pics of their barista tools.

Hi, I was wondering if anybody knows where to buy a tamp kit? What I would like specifically is a good handle with most if not every size removable tamp heads. I know I can find everything separate and make my own kit but it might be more cost effective and maybe I can get a nice little case with it.

Hello! I am a avid coffee lover and have always wanted to know the in's and out's of the coffee world.
Does anyone know of a training facility in the Tampa, FL area?

Hi, I've been a Barista for 8 months and would like to know if there is a good training place in Southern California near Ventura County.
