About Coffee Brew Ratio Calculator
You’ve chosen a great brewing method, bought the right equipment, found a bag of fresh, gourmet coffee beans. You’re ready to brew! It may be tempting to throw coffee in and start the process. But there's one more thing to consider: what’s the best coffee-to-water ratio? What's the golden ratio for my brewing method?
Getting the coffee-water ratio right is the key to a great cup of coffee.
But coffee measurement is a confusing topic, and “how much ground coffee per cup” doesn’t have a simple answer. Grams to milliliters? How many scoops of coffee? What if I like it strong? Do I need a scale? How much ground coffee do you need per cup? It all depends on your brewing method.
Some methods, like Cold Brew and French Press, leave the coffee in contact with the water for longer, meaning that you’ll need less coffee for each ounce of water. Other methods, like espresso machines, work quickly and at high pressure, so you’ll need much more coffee for each ounce of water. Sounds complicated doesn't it?
