Has anybody measured the weight of beans normally contained in the scoop supplied with the Aeropress? It appears to be about 20% bigger than the SCA= A "blue scoop" sold by SM, which I think would make it about 12 or 13 grams level capacity. I like the Aeropress. Nice tasting brew when diluted. It says not to use boiling water, but I boil the water and wait a little while before pouring it onto the grinds. Doesn't taste a bit overextracted. And FINALLY... a coffee brewing method for which Whirlyblade grinding seems really OK! Safe Journeys and Sweet Music Justin Marquez (Snyder, TX)http://www.justinandlinda.com
3 scoops weigh about 45 gr PeterZ Justin Marquez wrote: <Snip>

A dead level scoop will run around 13 g, while a slightly mounded scoop runs more like 15 g. I checked this by dumping 20 scoops out into a cup on my kitchen scale and taking the average. It ran right around 14 grams, with a +/- 1 g variation on most scoops. Cheers, Luke
I get 13 grams with the AeroPress scoop, and 10 grams with the SweetMaria's scoop. Both of them shaken sideways to level. Dave S.

Roger than for full bean -- half an ounce.
