One shot or two

Recommended Posts

I will be opening my coffee shop/cafe in the next couple of weeks.

My latte cups are 340ml. Is a standard latte best served with just one shot or two or is it best to give the customers an option and just stick with one shot.

@IAN9999 in a cup that size standard is 2 shots, but let them have one if they are lightweights or over 100 years old

@IAN9999 - in my opinion, a 250ml of cold milk, when frothed, gives you approx 300ml of textured milk at approx 65D. For me, with a double shot, it’s fine, for me at least. I don’t think I’d be able to taste any coffee with a single shot. 

flr reference, my “double” shot is 18g in, 36g out in approx 35s.

maybe consider smaller cups?
