Speaking of cup size, what measurement are coffeemaker companies using when they say "8 cup" or "12 cup"?
I know it's not a regulation cooking "cup" of 10 ounces. It's certainly not the standard coffee mugs we use here at Roseholme Cottage, because our "8 cups" of morning coffee means somebody gets two mugs and the slower one gets one and a warmup. I don't think you could even get eight full styrofoam shot glasses of the kind they keep next to the coffee urn at work out of it, but the Chemex insists I just made "8 cups" of coffee.
I demand cup reform! Accuracy in cup reporting! There oughtta be a law!
