Is light cream the same as half-and-half?

Light cream, also sometimes called coffee cream, is higher in fat than half-and-half. Light cream usually has 20% milkfat (although it can have 18-30 %). Half-and-half, on the other hand, has between 10 and 18 % milkfat (and is also wonderful in coffee, in my opinion!)
