One of the keys to a good cup of coffee made at home is using the perfect amount of coffee grounds to water. It is not a good idea to try to measure coffee beans with a spoon.
This is due to the fact that a coffee bean, being a spherical three-dimensional item, will never fit snuggly into a spoon when used in bulk.
Even measuring coffee grounds with a spoon might be erroneous. Try this approach if you want to get the right amount of coffee for your next pot.
According to Reddiwip, the ideal method for measuring coffee is to use a food scale to weigh the ingredients.
It is recommended that you weigh your coffee beans before grinding them to ensure an accurate measurement and to avoid wasting any beans.
People typically use a ratio of 1:15, or one part coffee grounds to fifteen parts water, as described in Home Grounds.
To make a cup of coffee with a volume of 300 grams, which is roughly 300 milliliters or about 10.25 ounces, you will need 20 grams of coffee.
Multiply by how many cups of coffee you desire. Multiply 300 grams of water by six to get 1,800 grams, then multiply 20 grams of coffee by six to get 120 grams, for 6 cups.
If you want to create the perfect cup or pot of coffee, using a scale is far easier than trying to attain these precise measurements with a spoon.
