    Would you recommend the ratio of coffee grinds to water stay the same when french pressing?

    Hey Ray,

    That's an awesome question, thanks for reaching out to me on this. When French pressing your brew, it's recommended that you weigh your grinds out to about 60 grams of coffee, but make sure you stick to the recommended 2.5:6 coffee to water ratio. 

    Check this link out, it includes a quick video on how to get an optimal brew from your French Press. 

    But, if you've got any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out!

    k cup, Kahlua and a smidge of daddy’s “special” Water and it’s Kick Off time!

    We have a standard 64oz / 12 cup Bunn commercial automatic coffee machine at the firehouse. By the math I should be putting in about 20 tbls of coffee. Somehow this seems waaay off. What would you suggest? Not trying to kill anyone here. We use about 5-7 scoops now. Want to make sure it's the right ratio for the intended flavor.

    Hey Elia,

    Thanks for dropping a line here! Your math actually wasn't too far off, because this coffee is a premium blend, the brewing ratio does tend to be a bit higher than most.

    The recommended brewing ratio is 2.5 tablespoons of coffee to every 6 ounces of water so, for a 64 ounce/12 cup brewer, you'll want to use about 24, 2.5 tbsp. scoops of coffee to fill a 12 cup pot. 

    Just picture 2.5 scoops, twelve times. But, an important thing to note is that a standard cup is measured at 8 ounces where a standard cup of coffee is only 6 ounces. Because of that, I typically add an extra scoop or two to compensate for the extra 2 ounces of water per cup. 


    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions for me or the team, don't hesitate to send us an email.

    We're standing by and happy to help however possible!
