Topic: Brewing coffee (6 msgs / 139 lines)
1) From: Ira
Today I was looking at the SM brewing coffee page, http://www.sweetmarias.com/brewinstr/grind.brew.php, and noticed 
something unexpected.
Almost all of the brew ratios listed are right around 1.6 grams of 
coffee per ounce of water except for the Clever Coffee Dripper and 
the Technivorm which are right around 1.8 grams of coffee per ounce of water.
Why do those two brewing methods require more coffee per water than 
all the other listed methods?

Grams coffee power ounce of water?  That makes my brain hurt, and not just
because I'm sick.
Looks like 1.6 g/oz is about 54 g/l and 1.8 is close to 61 g/l. I don't know
why the different ratios, but  have been using 58 g/l for all methods (which
is about a 17:1 ratio of water volume to coffee volume).

Well, 1.6 is about 18.4:1 and 1.8 is about 16.4:1 so you're just 
about in the middle. I just would have expected the number to be 
consistent and if there was a difference, I would not have expected 
the Clever to be on the stronger side of the other drip methods.

"Why do those two brewing methods require more coffee?"
For me only, I care not what the "listed method" says. The "listed method"
does not determine your ultimate flavor experience of the cup. It is only a
starting point and should be treated as such.
The ultimate flavor experience is yours alone and since you have so much
control of the variables, make each cup a product of the moment, not the
mindless Sameness of the dreckig chains.
Or- your coffee is waiting at Fourbucks- same exact copy of the previous
Scheiße...
The Ethiopia WP Guji Oromo is extraordinary when held to a few snaps of 2nd
then quenched. A double shot with this current junior roast yields fabulous
complexity at 14.0g (+) 0.7g, (-) 0.3g because of the individual bean size.
Mind-Blowing is 20.0g of the same bean Turkish brewed at 1.9 : 1 - 2.1 : 1,
grind setting 9 in the BUFF Mazzer. Incredible. (5 makes bread flour out of
whole grain wheat, but not on this new burr set, thank you)

want to really surprise yourself, calculate the ratio for the Aeropress.  I
use two scopes to make a mug of coffee, so, for me, it works out to 30g /
12oz or 2.5 g/oz.
And, yes, the mixture of metric and English units is silly, but for me, it's
easier to get accurate measurements on my scale in grams, while my coffee
maker is already calibrated in ounces (i.e., each "cup" is 4 oz of water)

An AP scoop is around 1.5 (1.7, but who's counting) SCAA scoops.
I usually use two AP scoops (pregrind) to 5 "cups" of coffee in the drip machine, which comes out to about 2 mugs of coffee (plus a little extra)
My espressos I usually use two heaping SCAA scoops (pregrind)
