The Basic Coffee Brewing Equation

Two heaping tablespoons of fresh, properly ground coffee
plus 6 ounces of good, fresh water heated to just-off-the-boil (195-205 degrees F)
plus a brew time of 4-6 minutes equals one flavorful serving of fabulous coffee.



Standard Coffee Measure

A standard coffee measure (spoon or scoop) is two tablespoons.
