Just made a nice cortado with little milk waste using the tiny DailyArt pitcher. This pitcher (which just arrived today) looks comically small on my bar next to the regular sized pitchers.

Now all of you have me wanting to expand my coffee choices with a cortado and others. :D
I'll have to order one, and maybe grab the one at this link also to compare that should be just a touch smaller than the Dailyart.

This one looks to be 5oz/150 ml to the brim with graduation marks at 2 and 4 oz, 80 and 130ml, and 2.1" diameter 2.4" tall.

I decided to order the 5 oz/150 ml milk picture I linked above, and also a pair of 5.4 oz JoyJolts borosilicate cups.
Yep, a 5 oz picture is small!
And cortado's are great!
Here's a pic with the 5oz picture, a 2 oz espresso cup, the 5.4 oz borosilicate cup, and my 500ml Motta.

Who's espresso cup is that? My ACFS are slowly giving up and that one looks pretty close.

I bought the little pitcher and love it to.

I think the espresso cups came in my Saeco espresso machine I bought about 20 years ago - came with 2 cups and saucers.
Seattle Coffee Gear sells a similar one.

Other major espresso retailers (Whole Latte Love, 1st Line Equipment, etc)
Or of course, amazon might have something you like.

Although the Amazon page indicates 5.4 oz. (~160 mL), the pitcher "instructions" show 6.5 oz (~190 mL).
Measuring the capacity to the brim, it is about 215 mL.
Funny, I purchased a 5 oz pitcher a while back for cortados, to steam 2 oz milk for the 4 .5 oz drink. The problem is that it's quite challenging to keep the whirlpool from lapping over the sides. I was thinking a 7 to 8 oz pitcher would be perfect, and here we have it! Here are the two side by side:



Here's the creamer pitcher I was using previously, which is perfect for 2 oz of milk. The downside is having to transfer after steaming to attempt any "art".



Cheers to the OP for the info and link to the pitcher. You should probably get a perk for all the sales you've generated. :D

I agree the OP did us a great service. I've ordered a slight larger one than his that claims to be 200 ml capacity. But I might get the 150 ml one too. No doubt the standard 12 oz ones (355 ml) are a bit too large for my one cappuccino and I end up tossing out some milk every morning.
