Topic: how many scoops per cup? (13 msgs / 382 lines)
1) From: michael brown
Okay i have to tell on myself here.  It's been so long since i've made
"regular" drip coffee that i couldn't remember how many scoops per cup
to make.  Seems like i remembered one scoop per two cups (scoops being
tablespoons).  I did that and tasted nothing, tasted like hot water.  I
tried another coffee, same thing.  Tried a third, same thing.  I've
been pulling shots for so long, and CCD's that i thought i aughta try
it as a drip.  Well it freaked me out.  These were left over coffees of
coffees that i had already sold to friends and such.  I'm thinking,
"there's something VERY wrong."  
I finally got up to 4scoops for 2cups before i could really taste the
coffee.  that still seems like an incredible amount, so i'm going to
ask the stupid question, or better yet, i'll mask it as a poll
question:  What's your scoop to cup ratio?  I'm still on the fence
about whether or not i should be freaking out.  Still doesn't quite sit
right with me.  Although the shots are great!  and the CCD's have been
good, this just doesn't seem right.
By the way, these were various coffees; Brazil taken 30sec into 2C,
Sumatra about 30sec into 2C, and Guat just a few snaps into second.

2) From: Tim TenClay
I've always heard 1 coffee scoop (2 Tbs) per cup (6 oz cup, not 8 oz).  I
tend to find that too much.   I use about 1.5 oz for a 10 c. pot (again...
cups are not 8 oz....)
Grace and peace,

I thought it was 1 scoop for every two (6oz) cups, which is more in line there.
I usually make 5 (6oz) cups in the morning and use 1/3 (real) cups of beans.

 I use between 1 and 2 grams of beans to 1 liquid ounce of water, depending on who I'm making it for and how strong they like their coffee.

My default dose is one level scoop (which holds about 8 g., about 2Tb -- =
I think) for every 5oz water. Then I adjust slightly the next time, if nece=

6) From: Greg Hollrigel
I use 2 Aeropress scoops for about 12 oz of water for my CCD and other drip
methods, which I compute to be about 11g per 6 oz water.
For my wife, she gets 1 Aeropress scoop for 10-12 oz of water.

10) From: Yakster
I've been using 2 AP (AeroPress) scoops for a long time to make small cups
of coffee for the Wife and I each morning.  This is the standard I use for
AP coffee and now for CCD (Clever Coffee Dripper) coffee.  I still use this
standard for the AP when I brew at work.
I have recently been measuring the weight of the grounds and the water, the
2 AP scoops of whole coffee weight out to be about 24 grams of ground
coffee.  I add 450 grams of 30 second off the boil water to these grounds in
the CCD to yield two 200 gram cups of coffee (about 6.75 oz each).  The nice
thing about weighing this is that I can now make a single serving for myself
by adding 225 grams of hot water to 12 grams of coffee because when I tried
to make single cups in the CCD, I have ended up mis-estimating the water
level by eye and ending up brewing too much coffee for the cup.
I was giving the Wife the first cup, but after reading Tom's results from
recent experiments where he stated that the first cup is stronger I've been
reversing this, but this is a slight problem because she takes Splenda and
the speed of the first cup is enough to mix in the sweetener, but the second
cup drains much slower and I may have to resort to a mini whisk in my
double-wall glass Bodum Pavina glasses, A step I'd rather skip.
For vac pot, I use the measuring scoop that came with the Yama 8 cup.

11) From: Yakster
BTW, 450 grams of water is about 15.2 ounces of water, the resulting 400
grams of coffee is about 13.5 oz of coffee, so 6.75 oz per cup or
thereabouts.
I still haven't managed to think in grams when roasting, but it's going in
that direction.
-Chris
Inventory in pounds, roast in ounces, brew in grams, it's all mixed up.

0.8 oz beans (less minimal loss in the Zassenhaus) to 12.5 oz (weight)
of hot water, net is right near 10 oz (weight) of brewed coffee.  Back
when I was grinding by whirly and dripping in the Mellita it wasn't a
great deal different, though I didn't do things by the numbers the way
the CCD makes it so easy to do.

13) From: Luke Eelman
I start with 1.5 g of coffee per ounce of water, and adjust from
there.  I usually measure out 30g of coffee for the 20oz pot I
typically brew.  I use a digital scale I picked up off ebay for $8,
which measures down to 0.1 g.
