To the best of my knowledge, the cup size definitions differ from country to
country and even change with time.
A "cup" is
 = 47 to 62.5 ml or 1.5 to 2 fluid oz. for single shot Espresso cup, or
 = 50 ml or 1.7 fluid oz for Espresso cup;
 = 120 ml or about 4 fluid oz. in some European countries
 = 150 ml or about 5 fluid oz. in Switzerland and most European countries
 = 177 ml or 6 fluid oz. when talking about coffee cups in the USA
 = 237 ml or 8 fluid oz. when cooking in the USA
 = 284 ml or 10 Imperial oz. when talking about Imperial cup.
The (British) Imperial cup was in use before 1970. One Imperial cup is 284
ml and has 10 fluid oz.
If you want to avoid confusion, it is best to use milliliters, such as:
" use 14 to 17 g of coffee for 50 ml of Espresso ", or
" use 7 g of coffee per 150 ml of water" for regular coffee.

It seems that the homeroast list is stuck again.  Below is the (slightly
corrected) item about cups that I sent around 6 o'clock in the evening
Sunday. It has not made it to the list ... it is now about eight o'clock
Monday morning -- about 14 hours later.
Cheers, Lubos

As far as I know, one "cup" is
 = 44 ml or 1.5 fluid oz. for a Demitasse cup
 = 44to 60 ml or 1.5 to 2 fluid oz. for single shot Espresso cup, or
 = 50 ml or 1.7 fluid oz for many Espresso cups
 = 120 ml or about 4 fluid oz. for a "Tasse" cup
 = 150 ml or about 5 fluid oz. is a regular coffee cup in most European
countries
 = 177 ml or 6 fluid oz. when talking about coffee cups in the USA
 = 237 ml or 8 fluid oz. when cooking in the USA
 = 284 ml or 10 Imperial oz. when talking about Imperial cup.
If you have any corrections, additions or comments, please tell me.
The (British) Imperial cup was in use before 1970. One Imperial cup is 284

I do not know what is a standard "cup" for Turkish or Greek coffee.  Ours
are the Demitasse size.
I do not know what is a "standard coffee cup" in other countries such as
Brazil, Columbia, Porto Rico, Israel etc.
Many French Press units are measured in Tasse cups; thus a 3 (Tasse) cup FF
is for about 12 ounces.
If you want to avoid confusion, it is best to use milliliters, such as:
" use 14 to 17 g of coffee for 50 ml of Espresso ", or
" use 7 g of coffee per 150 ml of water" for regular coffee.

It seems that the homeroast list is stuck again. Below is the (slightly
corrected) item about cups. I am sending to the homeroast list -- it is
Tuesday, August 21, 2001 evening slightly after 9:30 P.M. of our Austin
time, or about 10:30 P.M. of the "list" time.
Let's see when it makes it on the list.
Cheers, Lubos
