  • Brew ratio is 16:1 (water to coffee)
  • 1 coffee scoop = 10g coffee
  • 1 tbsp = 5g coffee
  • 1 fluid oz = 30g
  • If brew time takes too long & coffee is bitter, try a coarser grind
  • Use as hot of water as possible, especially for lighter roasts
  • Buying freshly roasted coffee makes a difference, & whole bean is always a better choice than pre-ground coffee
