I know it's not related to FreeBSD but is there a way to increase the size of UTF-8 miscellaneous symbols (in literal) in a terminal (urxvt) without increase the font size?
eg. \xe2\x98\x95 it's the symbol of coffee, printed (with echo) is very small. How can I increase the symbols size without modify my fonts in .Xresources.

It's because it's the wrong beverage. Try this: echo "\xf0\x9f\x8d\xba"

Haha, no, just kidding.
I have never seen a console with different font sizes for different characters.
You could search for a different font that displays the coffee symbol larger.

Next time read more carefully, it's sais very clear "printed (with echo)".
Anyway the issue was solved by hacking the source code of that program and now prints the desired output.

I usually add this to .shrc to get good locale.
export LANG=C.UTF-8 ; export LC_ALL=C.UTF-8

Maybe it can help you.
