This discussion depends very much on what you call a cup. The standard cup for coffee is 6 oz. Most cup and saucer coffee cups are 6 oz. Most coffee mugs are 9 oz or 12 oz. Unless you specify the oz. the number of cups you say doesn't mean much. I make about 60 oz of coffee every day and drink it all. That would be 10 coffee cup cups, or 6-7 small mugs or five regular mugs. 60 oz day in and day out.
