Brewed Coffee

This is a simple brewed coffee ratio that I always use and it never fails me! Measuring is important if you want your coffee to turn out perfect every time. I am a coffee enthusiast and love finding new tricks to making great coffee.

Brewed Coffee

12 oz (1 1/2 cups) water
4 TB coffee

If the beans aren’t already ground, grind them (which are best freshly ground). With this ratio, brew the coffee however you want whether it be in a coffee pot, drip system, aeropress, French press, etc.

With using a French press, let the coffee grounds soak in hot water for 4-5 minutes, then press. With using a drip system, as the water is soaking through the coffee grounds in the filter, stir the grounds to ensure maximum flavor and that each ground is getting soaked.
