What size coffee are you drinking?

Coffee lovers are living in a culture of not only fancy lattes but - increasingly - supersized cups. For the next month, Tim Hortons is discontinuing its small 8-ounce cup in two Canadian markets as part of a test-run.

They're calling the 10-ounce cup "small" from now on, and all the size names are moving up a notch...up to 24 ounces. Earlier this year, Starbucks announced its new "Trenta" size...which is more than an average bottle of wine!
