When you start drinking coffee one of the things that’s going to keep you scratching your head is how much coffee is needed for the optimal strength of coffee. I get asked quite a lot this question, so I thought why not do a short text on what I think the best amount of coffee would be when brewing a pot.
How much coffee is needed for a cup of coffee
The most correct answer to the question above is, it depends. I like to drink strong coffees. That is the reason why I usually put around 2 tablespoons of coffee for a standard cup of coffee.
You could be putting a bit more than that, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Not just because coffee would then be extremely bitter, but also because of health reasons. Drinking more than 5 cups of very strong coffee per day could cause problems with blood pressure.
Official rule is that you should be putting around 6-7 table spoons of coffee on 20 fluid ounces of water. Like I already mentioned, tastes differ, and you might be interested in coffee that’s weaker or stronger. How much coffee do you use, more than two tablespoons?
