Coffee Cups

It took me until a few weeks shy of my 40th birthday to discover that the cups marked on a coffee pot are not 8-ounce cups. They're actually 6 ounces. I couldn't figure out why I made "8 cups" of coffee for iced coffee tomorrow and discovered it did not fill two quart jars. It made 6 cups. Okay, so I'm a little slow, but this is a revelation to me. Shabbat shalom!

Hey, cool! I didn't know that either! Thanks for filling me in... I always wondered why the markings didn't seem like they made as much as you'd expect - I don't drink coffee but my mom and DH do and they must drink at least 2 of the 6 oz cups per sitting!
