The recipe for caffe lattes has a range anywhere from 1/3 espresso and 2/3 milk to 1/6 espresso and 5/6 milk, by volume, so a cup designed specifically for lattes can range from 6-12 fl ounces (175-350 mL).

They may come with a saucer and spoon when served at fancier cafes and roasteries. The spoon is used to stir some of the dry foam into the drink between sips. The saucer is to keep the spoon off the table.
