Questions are best asked in the forum. The posts will last longer, and will be seen the most by members. After a few more posts in the Shoutbox, the post you made will no longer be seen.... maybe you could also introduce yourself and share a little.

When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

OldMan41, depends what is "a pot"... usually is more accurate to specify the brew ratio, instead grams of coffee. The most usual is 1:15, thus 40 grams for 600 ml of water. If the 100 grams are for one liter pot, then we are talking about 1:10 ratio.

Water and Coffee
There has been tons-o-chatter about water. We do have some scattered talk; we wanted to have a simple water thread for easier member locating.

That's what this is about: WATER

plain old water...

This is always a great place to start with thoughts on extraction.



For those who have time on their hands to read and think, the article below is fantastic...

Life's too short to drink bad coffee.

you are funny, the link I put above is Jim's article. I had asked him ages ago if I could put it up for download here and he was most gracious and said yes.

he even offered to sign it for me...

thanks for posting; you are correct it is the BEST article on water ever...

love ya bunches...


I'll only go as far as to say water is required to brew coffee, and if the water tastes bad, it can't help the coffee.

The discussion was more of a water quality issue than quantity.

It looks like the post before mine from another member was deleted.

It was an intentional spam attack from a user advertising their paid referral link website.

One of the things spammers usually do is respond to the oldest post they can find. I think it draws attention like this did.
