Making great coffee doesn’t have to be complicated, but there are certain elements of the process to consider when brewing your morning cup. One is making sure you measure your grounds properly.
The strength of your infusion coffee is determined by the ratio of ground coffee to water, but exactly how much coffee should there be in a scoop?
A scoop of coffee is generally considered to be two tablespoons. Unfortunately, coffee spoons come in all shapes and sizes, so it can be difficult to determine if yours is the right size – it’s easy to figure out though.
Take a tablespoon and fill it with water. Measure out a tablespoon of water and carefully pour it into your measuring spoon. Then repeat the same step. If the water fills your scoop and doesn’t overflow, you have the perfect option for brewing.
If you’re anything like me, you kind of look at the amount of coffee grounds you put in your coffee grinder. However, that also means – just like me – that you often make coffee that is too weak or too strong for your taste.
To make it perfect, follow the general rule of adding two tablespoons of soil for every six ounces of water used. If you’re looking to perfect your coffee brewing process, this little fact about your coffee spoon can make a big difference.
