How Much Coffee Should You Put in a Pot?

Two tablespoons of ground coffee are typically added to a pot for every six ounces of water. Use roughly 24 tablespoons or 1.5 cups of ground coffee for a typical pot that yields 12 6-ounce cups.

The amount of water the coffee pot can contain and the size of the scoop determine how many scoops are used exactly. The majority of coffee pots include a one-tbsp. scoop.

Depending on individual preferences, the quantity of coffee required for a pot can also change. Add three tablespoons of coffee for every six ounces of water if you prefer your coffee strong (36 tablespoons or a little over 2 cups per pot).

Use only 1 tablespoon of ground coffee per 6 ounces of water (12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup per pot) for a little less bitter coffee.
