How Much Coffee Do I Put In a Coffee Maker?

You want the perfect tasting brew, but how much coffee do you use in your coffee machine? Well, it will depend of course on how many cups you want to make and how strong you want it. It will also depend on the brand and type you are using. If you are using beans which have a higher level of acidity, like Kenyan coffee then consider using less in the pot.

But this is a general guide which I use. I do like a strong cup of java, so I use 2 heaped tablespoons per mug of water, plus an extra an extra tablespoon on top for 5 – 6 cups.

If you have  just got your coffee maker and this is your first, then you will have to rely on the old, ‘trial and error method’ until you find your perfect tasting cup of coffee! Good luck.
