(Some Coffee Moron)   How many scoops of coffee do you put in the filter basket? The directions on mine say to put a scoop per cup. That seems like a lot of freaking coffee   (ask.com) divider line 323

how strong do you like your coffee?
 
2008-01-07 12:07:29 PM  
I usually put in one less scoop than the number of cups I'm brewing and it comes out pretty good.
 
2008-01-07 12:07:57 PM  
I put in 4 scoops, but we have a big scooper.
 
2008-01-07 12:08:54 PM  
one scoop only?
You want coffee or you want to make love in a canoe?
Your choice.
 
2008-01-07 12:09:14 PM  
It depends on the size of the scoop. I usually have the basket about 1/2-2/3 full.
 
2008-01-07 12:09:54 PM  
remember, you can always water down strong coffee, but if it's too weak, nothing can save it.
 
2008-01-07 12:10:09 PM  
I usually put in three scoops for a twelve cup pot. The instructions read like I should put in 12 scoops. I think that would kill me.
 
2008-01-07 12:10:30 PM  
i do 1 1/2 tablespoons per cup. scoops are for jerks.
 
2008-01-07 12:10:38 PM  
submitter: a scoop per cup

That'll either put hair on your chest or burn it off...

I usually do ( for a full 12 "cups" listed on most coffeemakers) 4 scoops. That will be about the strength you find in most restaurants. After that you can adjust.
 
2008-01-07 12:10:50 PM  
5 heaping scoops
 
2008-01-07 12:11:11 PM  
5 for a 4 cup machine
 
2008-01-07 12:11:21 PM  
I've never made coffee. So I guess I'd follow exactly what's on the tin.

WHY DO WE HAVE TO CHOOSE? I WANT BOTH.

ALL SCOOPS ARE DIFFERENT ITS THE MAN TRYING TO KEEP US DOWN
 
2008-01-07 12:12:10 PM  
I put in double whatever it says. I'm hardcore like that.

But I also like burnt coffee, according to the experts.
 
2008-01-07 12:12:29 PM  
I use 25g per 500ml of water in my French Press.
 
2008-01-07 12:13:04 PM  
I put half the number of scoops as cups plus one for the pot. It's the perfect amount- I use a scoop from a can of baby formula which is probably bigger. Don't they say caffine works opposite on infants?

/*yawn*

i wonder how hard it would be to drink coffee and make love in a canoe at the same time.

I'm sofa king going to McDonalds for a Quarter Pounder after having to try and read that nonsense.

Seriously, if this is too difficult for you maybe teabags are the way to go.

If you are talking GREEN tea, perhaps.

well, since you ask
...oh, wait, explicit details could get me in trouble...
Let's just say that it involves duct tape, a life vest and two pounds of axle grease.
 
2008-01-07 12:15:28 PM  
I predict this goes epic when the coffee snobs show up.
 
2008-01-07 12:15:44 PM  
So, when did ANON-DIT threads start getting greenlit to the front page?
 
2008-01-07 12:16:12 PM  
1 to 1 and let it sit an extra long while. kinda like camp coffee that way!
 
2008-01-07 12:16:22 PM  
I just dial the grinder to the number of cups I'm making and press go.

You're in on the GROUND FLOOR, baby!
 
2008-01-07 12:16:32 PM  
1 scoop per cup +1 scoop for the pot. So, 9 scoops for 8 cups. That's the norm around here. No wonder american coffee is so darn weak.
 
2008-01-07 12:16:53 PM  
I put in as much coffee as I can and hope the hole in the bottom doesn't plug up.
 
2008-01-07 12:17:00 PM  
Scoop is a relative term. I could say "I use one scoop per pot." And you'd think I was making pussy coffee, until you learned my scoop was a garden shovel.

We do one tablespoon per cup.

OregonVet: I put half the number of scoops as cups plus one for the pot

Otherwise, what, you hurt the pot's feelings?

Coffee sucks.

Juan Valdez wrote those instructions.

/Pimp the product
 
2008-01-07 12:17:55 PM  
holy heck, how did this one go green

h0t5auce: pussy coffee,

Pussy coffee.


Delicious.
 
2008-01-07 12:17:59 PM  
listen to this person. right on the money.


mayberebecca: do 1 1/2 tablespoons per cup. scoops are for jerks.

mayberebecca: i do 1 1/2 tablespoons per cup. scoops are for jerks.

She's right.

Also, coffee is awesome with just a little cinnamon sprinkled over the grounds prior to brewing. Tastes like coffee and win. If such a thing is even possible.
 
2008-01-07 12:18:08 PM  
I use 1 scoop for 2 cups.
It's a large scoop.
 
2008-01-07 12:18:11 PM  
My dad fills the filter all the way to the top. Stuff comes out like maple syrup.

/not kidding

About five heaping scoops for an 8-cup brewer, depending on the size of the particular scooper I'm using at the time.
 
2008-01-07 12:18:23 PM  
I do roughly one small scoop (not sure the size, a teaspoon maybe) per 3 cups of water going into the coffee maker. Sometimes I do a little more or less but the 3:1 seems to work out for me.
 
2008-01-07 12:18:29 PM  
For my "10 cup" pot (I get 3.5 mugs filled per pot), I use three heaping teaspoons. And by "teaspoon," I mean an actual teaspoon, not any actual measuring device. 3.5 teaspoons makes it a little strong for my liking.
 
2008-01-07 12:19:02 PM  
too-old: holy heck, how did this one go green

That's what I am wondering.

/submitter
 
2008-01-07 12:19:19 PM  
The correct ratio is 2 tablespoons (about 10 grams) per 6 ounces of water.

/scoop? wth

Yep. That's how I roll.
 
2008-01-07 12:19:26 PM  
My wife makes me use a regular table spoon to measure coffee. She doesn't like it in the scooper.
 
2008-01-07 12:19:36 PM  
If someone would have told me it was going green, I would have at least tried to be funny
