No, but I make them. It really depends on what type of espresso you are drinking. My husband likes double shots. I like capuccinos .

Sandi Pierantozzi, a Philly potter, sells a complete set of templates for building all kinds of forms. She was selling them at NCECA and they were reasonably priced. Check it out ... http://sandiandneil.com/

at a coffee-to-go stand or any of Starbucks cafe get yourself espresso in a paper cup, then after drinking it open it carefully to flatten it and there you have a perfect template. this is what i did. adi

My porcelain shrinks 12%. Here are 2 of mine.
That is a US quarter next to them.

Why do you need a mold/pattern/jig/voodoo/whatever ... espresso cups are only 3-4 oz. you could pinch one out in about 20 seconds they are about that small.

Make your own 'pattern' if you need one, so it's your work and not the work of someone else ... adds more value to your pieces ... especially in your own eyes.

Exactly right! That's why I asked (and was ignored) about this at the beginning of the thread. I couldn't believe someone was actually asking for a pattern to copy.
