It isn’t always easy to measure the right amount of coffee and get the proportion of coffee to water exactly correct!
Well, in this article, I’m going to show you how to measure out the perfect amount of water to the perfect amount of coffee in order to consistently make 6 cups of coffee every single time.
How Much Coffee Grounds for 6 Cups?
First off, you’re going to need one important tool. And that is a kitchen scale that measures in grams. Once you have a kitchen scale, the perfect ratio that I’ve found is 1065 grams of water to 63 grams of coffee beans to make 6 cups of coffee. If you do not have a scale, then you can simply utilize a measuring scoop and a measuring cup to make your 6 cups of coffee. The ratio in terms of measuring tools is, 12 tablespoons of ground coffee and 4 and 1/2 cups of water. Simple!
4 1/2 Cups
The first thing you’re gonna do is measure the water. So first place the kettle on the scale and zero out the scale. Then just start adding water to the kettle until you’ve reached 1065 grams of water. Now it’s okay if you go over 1065 milliliters of water just by a little bit. The reason is because when you boil the water or if you just heat up water you may lose a little bit in water evaporation.
The second thing we’re gonna do is measure out the beans. So place a glass cup or a just a regular plastic cup on the scale and hit the zero button. Now start adding the coffee beans until you’ve reached 63 grams. It’s okay if you go over a little bit but try to keep it to exactly 63 grams. So that’s enough for 6 cups of coffee.
That’s it! That is how we’re going to get the perfect amount of water and the perfect amount of beans every single time to make a very consistent 6 cups of coffee. I have also included a standard brewing ratio chart below if you ever decided to make more or less cups of coffee!
