How Much Espresso Goes into the Different Cup Sizes?

One thing that can get a little confusing when starting out as a barista is learning to understand how much espresso you need to put in each of the various cup sizes. For example when making a coffee for a customer in a small 8 ounce take away cup should you use a normale, a ristretto, or a double ristretto?

In this video Luke talks us through each of the standard cup sizes from a 4 ounce cup up to a 16 ounce cup to explain how much espresso should be dropped into each. The main goal for a barista should be maintaining overall consistency and flavour across the cup range.
