Since inheriting a collection of antique demitasse cups (small coffee cups, French 'half-cups') from my grandmother, I've been wondering what to serve in them! I came across this simple recipe in my trusty dog-eared copy of Betty Crocker's Cookbook, and thought I'd share. Would be great served with pastries for a ladies luncheon, or as an after dinner treat. I've included the instant method as well as the more traditional brewed method. Demitasse is served in small cups, often with a twist of lemon peel. Sugar may be offered, cream usually is not.
