Dinner Coffee Spoon

Variety Of Spoons Use For Stirring Coffee

Spoons come in various sizes, shapes, designs, and are made from differing materials to make sure they perform their job as well as possible. There are a total of 61 plus spoons. We will share with you some of our favorite spoons use when stirring our coffee beverages.

Coffee Spoon – Not to be confused with a coffee measuring scoop, these are small (often more so than even a teaspoon) meant to be used for stirring and sipping coffee from a smaller after-dinner coffee cup. They aren’t seen often anymore unless a part of a special set of dishes.

Sugar spoon – They’re typically sterling silver and come with formal tea and coffee sets. There are some with flat bowls called sugar shovels, as well.

Demitasse Spoon – The demitasse spoon, also known as a mocha spoon (to stir coffee made with an equal amount of hot chocolate), is approximately 3¾ to 4½ inches long, in proportion with the demitasse cup and saucer used in formal dining. At a formal dinner or formal luncheon, coffee is served in a demitasse cup, and a demitasse spoon is used if sugar is added.

After-Dinner Coffee Spoon – The after-dinner coffee spoon is approximately 4½ to 5 inches long, a length that balances the after-dinner coffee cup. It is used only for informal dining. At a multi-course meal, a small cup of strong coffee is served after the meal to aid digestion, and after-dinner coffee spoons are used.

Teaspoon – They’re most commonly used as stirring spoons now and sometimes to sip hot coffee or hot cocoa.
