The last few times I've had a commercial latte, the size choices have ranged from 12 oz. on up to birdbath-sized. I understand that the baristae use whatever number and strength of espresso shots they feel like using.
Here am I at home with my Saeco Aroma - a little steamer wand and a little stainless steel container for heating milk. I don't see myself heating up pints of milk that way. Also, a portafilter that will make a double shot at one time.
What size do you folks make at home with equipment like mine?

I do not drink milk, but when I am making on-request lattes, they are typically 8 ounces, 12 ounces at the MAX.
The machine is a Silvia by Rancilio and the steaming chalice is an 8 ouncer I think (I should measure this).
What I have NOT understood are:
-the trends in super-sized caps and lattes and the non-coffee dessert drinks which BUX seems to have proliferated.
-Lattes served in begging bowls are some chi-chi cafes. What is up with this? Every tried holding one of these things when the milk is the right temperature?
