Word Of The Day: Demitasse

It's the little things that matter, right? While this sentiment rarely applies to the food world (go big or go home), there's a small cup you should get friendly with.

A demitasse is a small cup used to serve coffee. The French word meaning "half-cup" is usually used for strong brews like espresso, Turkish coffee or cappuccino – you know, "productivity time" coffee. It's also not uncommon to see an hors d'oeuvre or amuse bouche-sized portion of hot or cold soup served in a demitasse. But that won't get your day started.
