This is the same glass used in the top US coffee shops.
At 4.5 oz, the glass is the perfect size for the classic Cortado.

The Story Behind the Gibraltar / Cortado...
It all started in San Francisco, CA at Blue Bottle Coffee. Steve Ford (now a roaster at Ritual Coffee Roasters) started serving Cortado-like beverages in the Libbey Gibraltar glass. Known to the locals as simply a "Gibraltar", it was an off-menu item with a cult following. Today most Cortados are served in a gibraltar glass at coffee shops across the country.
