I hope you can agree with my statement when I say…
Measuring the right amount of coffee for 6 cups of water is not easy!
Well, in this article, I will show you how to measure the perfect amount of coffee grounds for 6 cups of water in order to make great tasting coffee every time.
How Much Coffee For 6 Cups of Water?
In order to make the best tasting cup of coffee, you are going to need one important kitchen tool. You are going to need a kitchen scale that has the ability to measure in grams. Now, the perfect ratio that I found is 1065 grams of water to 63 grams of coffee beans in order to make 6 cups of coffee. If you lack a scale, then you can simply use a measuring scoop and a measuring cup for 6 cups of water. The ratio is 12 tablespoons of ground coffee and 4 and 1/2 cups of water. That is it!
4 1/2 Cups
The first step in making the perfect cup of coffee is measuring the water. Place a kettle on a scale and zero out the scale. Then start adding water to the kettle and you reach 1065 grams on the scale. It is not an issue if you go over 1065 grams because when you boil the water, you may lose a little bit of water in the evaporation process. Of course you already knew that.
The second important step is going to be measuring the beans. Place a glass cup or any other regular cup on a scale and zero out the scale. Next, start adding the coffee beans until the scale reaches 63 grams. It is not an issue if you go over a little bit but do try to keep it exactly at 63 grams. For 6 cups of coffee, 63 grams of coffee beans is perfect.
Well, that is the entire process. You are done. That is how you get the perfect amount of water and the perfect amount of beans every single time you make 6 cups of coffee. Below I included a standard brewing ratio chart to help you if you decide to make more than 6 cups of coffee. I hope you enjoyed this post, please share! Enjoy!
