Coffee drinkers should all be familiar with the Demitasse spoon, especially if they are a fan of espresso drinks. Demitasse spoons fit perfectly into coffee cups and lie down elegantly on saucers. They provide an added layer of elegance to any beverage service and minimize the risk of spills and drips caused by large spoons sloshing coffee about. Demitasse spoons are used to stir coffee after the addition of cream and sugar, though some people like to stir hot drinks to cool them slightly as well. This type of restaurant flatware is also used by the barista to spoon foamed milk into a latte or cappuccino. Demitasse spoons have other uses, not related to restaurant supplies as well; many people use these tiny spoons to feed babies and to assist in performing a surgical procedure to correct a hernia as well.
While you probably aren’t going to be using this little spoon to perform surgery, you should still consider adding a set of them to your restaurant supplies so that your guests are able to enjoy their espresso and coffee properly. When choosing a set of demitasse spoons for your hotel flatware or restaurant flatware, you must consider several factors including steel grade, silverware pattern, and size of spoon. For long lasting and durable restaurant flatware, choose bouillon spoons made of either 18/10 stainless steel or 18/8 stainless steel. For restaurants and hotels that need to save a little money, go for the less expensive flatware in 18/0 stainless steel, these spoons will be a little softer and may be prone to bending or being scratched. The right flatware pattern that you will choose depends mostly on the look you are going for, we carry hundreds of beautiful patterns that can fit in anywhere, from a catered event like a wedding to a casual diner and everything in between.
