The blue plastic SCAA scoops that Tom sells are 29.6 ml and that is more
like TWO tablespoons. There are other coffee scoops which are  about 1
tablespoon.  The one that came with my French Press claims to be "7 grams"
in size - I have not tested it because I use the bluee scoop. The blue SCAA
scoop holds about about 10 grams roasted (and about 20 grams of greens) -
this I have tested many times.

Now am I to understand that they do the same kind of silly 
indecisiveness  with coffee SCOOPS as they do with coffee CUPS!

I usually use two scoops for an eight ounce mug.  That is two
standard  coffee scoops which, I believe are one tablespoon each.  If I am
using a  capucino cup, which is about 4-5 ounces, then I use one ROUNDED
scoop. The  coffee comes out with lots of body, lots of flavor, but not an
overly strong  taste and definitely not weak like breakfast diner coffee,
which is more like  brown tinted water than coffee.  How do others feel
about this?   Jeff
Jeff,
I try to stick to the guidelines as much as possible, as far as the
measuring goes, but I like to experiment with the grind size all the time!
Here's a guideline to the *proper* ratio from:http://www.blackbearcoffee.com/BrewingRatioChartsBasic Ratio.
1 cup of coffee = 2 tablespoons of coffee ( or 1/8th cup ) + 6 fluid oz o=

water
See their website for an *indepth conversions* chart!!!
Works well for me!
