This is the fifth in our “Different Types of Spoons” series and today we are examining the Demitasse Spoon.
A Demitasse is a very small cup of coffee. And therefore it requires a very small spoon. This is why it is also known at the “Espresso Spoon”. We are talking serious coffee cutlery here.
A demitasse spoon is a diminutive spoon, smaller than a teaspoon.
It is traditionally used for coffee drinks in specialty cups and for spooning cappuccino froth.
It is also used as a baby spoon, and in some surgical procedures.
Wait, what !? Surgical procedures? “A demitasse spoon is useful instrument to retain and protect the peritoneum during suturing.”. OK, you can go further down that rabbit hole on your own, we’ve read enough on that. Let’s just focus on the spoon for coffee.
The IMEEA Demitasse Spoon pictured above is just the thing. We like the unique design because it’s so well suited for other things like scooping maccha tea powder, spices, desert or sugar or whatever. Made of dishwasher safe brushed SUS304 stainless steel and measuring at 5.9 inches or 15cm in length this tiny spoon fits your tiny cup. The IMEEA Demitasse Spoons come in a set of four.
