Measurements for Coffee Recipes

Measuring does not need to be difficult or exact. Make sure you try the recipes before unloading them onto your poor unsuspecting customers!

The 12oz cup is the most popular size and once you learn to add flavours to this size, it will then be easy to adjust the syrup amounts to other size cups.


Most of the syrup combinations are based on a total of 1 ounce (2 shots) of flavour to a 12 oz espresso drink.


Remember, tastes vary so at times you may need to adjust the amount of syrup used.

Basic Measurement Guidelines:

8oz cup   - 1/2oz syrup (1 shot)

12oz cup - 1oz syrup (2 shots)

16oz cup - 1 1/2oz Syrup (3 shots)
