Topic: dosers on grinders (31 lines)

I've found that a tablespoon of roasted beans weighs 5 grams, pretty consistent. That's 7.5 grams per 5-6 oz cup. Having tested this on a gram scale repeatedly (20-30 times over a few weeks), I'm pretty confident that 3 tbsp of roasted beans weighs 15 grams. I double check this weight about 2 times a week just to be sure.
I use 3 tbsp of beans to 12 oz of water, then brew using the Swiss gold single cup filter. This is a bit over the recommended amount (for the filter) but I fudge it. This usually makes a good strong mug of coffee of about 10-11 oz. You lose a little to the grounds during brewing.

You may have better luck than I, Dan, but I've *never* had any luck getting
a consistent weight (or volume) from a grinder based on time.  There are
just too many variables.  Like size of the beans to start with.  Cleanliness
of the grinder matters a lot.  Degree of roast...
Let us know how it works for you.
