In the United States, 21st century, a unit of liquid capacity, the amount dispensed by a single depression of the pump fitted to a bottle, typically containing flavored syrup to be added to a coffee-based beverage.

Using the Monin pump, 1 pump is about 10 milliliters (about 2/3 of a U.S. tablespoon). A Torani pump dispenses slightly less, about 7.5 mL (about half of a U.S. tablespoon).

The pump is also used for many other similarly-dispensed products, with varying magnitudes.

This just in from my daughter who has a part-time job at Starbucks:

“Bill Maher doesn’t have it right....he didn’t call the drink in the right order...

“Single Affagato Decaf Venti 2 pump caramel, 2 pump mocha, add java chips, double blended, caramel drizzle in the cup (or you could merely say “upside down” to indicate caramel in the cup), with whip and caramel and mocha drizzle, Caramel Frappachino.”
