Coffee bags can be confusing yes, IIRC 100, 132 & 150# depending on origin.
But hell, "cup". Could be as in cupping. Or not. If someone says they use X
grams per "cup" it means nothing unless first defining the cup. It could me
8 ounces sure, cup could also mean ~4 ounces Sometimes 4oz being a tass cup
though tass also often used referring closer to 2oz. IIRC Tass simply being
Turkish derivation meaning small cup. But how small a cup! Also a cup can be
6 ounces (restaurant industry standard X cups per urn in 6oz units) or have
seen for instance a carafe marked 12 cups when volume measured coming out to
5oz cups so who knows. Cup is also a shape. And while all mugs are cups all
cups are not mugs. Cup be confusing:-)

Heh. Yah, but how often do we get to sling around weird
measure? Which brings me to:
Are there any coffee-industry unique units of measure?
