Please help. Is the below measurements the standard for coffee shops?

Espresso Shots:

1. 7-9 grams (1 espresso) = 1.5 ounces

2. 14 grams (2 espresso) = 2 – 2.5 ounces

3. 18-20 grams (3 espresso) = 3 – 3.5 ounces

4. 1 coffee pound (454 grams) = 65 single espresso shots

Using the above measurements, to make a 12oz, 16oz, and 20oz (Mocha, Lattes, etc.) coffee drinks:

1. 1 shot + 10 ounces milk = 12oz

2. 2 shots + 14 ounces milk = 16oz

3. 3 shots + 16 ounces milk = 20oz

Please correct my measurements if wrong, especially the milk measurements to make a coffee drink.

Thank you.

1 pound in theory or unless your using an automated espresso grinder such as a Azkoyen will give you 64 single shots. An Azkoyen will weigh out the grounds before each shot is dosed in to the portafilter. But the problem lies in how accurate it the machine is. Don't want to dive to deeply in the matter but to make it simple your going to have waste and you might only be able to produce in the high 50 to maybe even 60 single espresso's.

All your cups are going to be shorter on milk then you listed. You need room for the syrup as well as any toppings you might apply to the drink. Remember you still have to get the lid on if it is a to go drink.
