I don't think so. Not only would they not be serving 20 ounce cups of espresso in Italy, they don't use ounces. Italy has been metric for a long time (since 1861).
The coffee's no better over here.

I'd be swinging from the rafters and singing "Nellie Dean" if I drank 20 ounces of espresso at on sitting!
