The ratio of coffee to water is key to making a great cup of joe. The Black Bear Micro Roastery has made a chart for easy reference, showing you the right amount of water to use with your freshly ground coffee.
There are two charts, one for the average coffee drinker and one for connoisseurs. Pick how many cups of coffee you need to make, see how much coffee you need to use (ounces, grams, teaspoons, tablespoons or cups) and add the corresponding amount of water. Most people will use teaspoons or tablespoons to measure the coffee, so those are written in whole numbers, while ounces and grams fall in fractions. If you’re that serious about your coffee, get a weighing scale and use the connoisseur’s chart.
Of course, the coffee-to-water ratio is just one part of making great coffee. You can learn the fine art in more detail with our complete guide to brewing the perfect cup.
