Tasse à café

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tasse filled with coffee

A tasse à café (French pronunciation: [tɑs‿a kafe], coffee cup) is a cup, generally of white porcelain and of around 120 ml (4 fl oz), in which coffee is served.[1][2] It is also sometimes used to serve small portions of rich drinks, such as hot chocolate

The word originates from Arabic: طاس, romanizedṭās, from the Persian: طاس, romanizedṭās, meaning cup or bowl. A half-sized cup is called a demi-tasse (English demitasse), literally "half-cup".
