Subject: Drip/ pour over coffee to water ratio
 

I am thinking about purchasing a drip station to make multiple coffees.  I have been using a pour over dripper for a while now but I am still trying to figure out what the proper amount of grinds to use is best.  I know 30g is ideal for a 14oz cup.  what about a medium or an extra large?  

Has anyone found a good drip ratio?

If 14 oz requires 30g of grounds then a 10oz cup would require 21g.  Is this a good starting point?

60g per litre is generally the recommended starting ratio.  

Apply pro-rata.

+1. I think that 30g for 14oz is a bit of an updose. The ratio I use is 1:16 measuring everything in weight -- close to but a little higher than 60g: 1L if we take 1L = 1000g -- but the 60 number is an excellent starting point to work from.

Thx guys! :)

So for a 400ml cup (13.5oz) 25g of coffee grounds is what I got.  That's right on the money. :)  Thx again!  This means I can get roughly 16 large cups out of a pound.

You're welcome!

I think that's about right; maybe even 17 or 18. And by all means, experiment with dose. The 1:16 works beautifully for my taste buds, but other folks will disagree.

I'm sorry but this is very confusing.
I am refering to manual drip process.  

Looking at the SCAA chart here: http://www.mountaincity.com/brewing-1.html   It says 20% extraction, 1.25 TDS. 131g of drip ground coffee and 1.9L of hot water will give me ideal optimum balanced flavour.

In my case:

Water   1.9L:5 = 380ml
Grinds   106g:5 = 21.2
= 17.92% extraction/obsorption

Am i reading this chart correctly?

I'm not sure how this fancy chart really helps any of us at home.  How are you going to measure your TDS or extraction % in order to use the chart?
