I am using a small Trangia at the moment but it still takes up a lot of room and as I only ever need to heat soup and coffee when camping are there any smaller alternatives. Also, if you could directly heat up the cup or so,etching cup size it would be better than a small pot! Thanks.

This is what I use.
It is about the smallest cooking/heating setup that I have found.

The Stove and the Fuel-Canister fits inside the cooking-Cup, so all you are packing away in your luggage is just the Cup.

Probably smallest would be one of those foldable twig fireboxes (https://www.amazon.ca/Lixada-Lightweight-Portable-Stainless-Backpacking/dp/B06XKVLS32/ref=asc_df_B06XKVLS32/?tag=googleshopc0c-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=293036632477&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5064197068463648689&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9000920&hvtargid=pla-572057960395&psc=1). I have never used one as they seem quite messy, hard to argue with the size and unlimited fuel though.

Forgot to mention, a typical stainless steel camping coffee mug could be put directly on the heat source.

Pretty hard to beat the good ol' MSR Pocket Rocket if you ask me. The Wife and I have both used them for a long time and they have never failed us once.
