I own a Bodum Chambord 8 Cup (32oz) French press:
Does anyone have ratios for a strong, flavorful brew? My coffee usually comes out weak
and watery. I need a ratio for good coffee. I also steep for 6 minutes on my grinders coarsest setting. Thanks!

Since nobody has chimed in yet, I use 20g for 300ml in my single serve Espro press, you should be able to calculate up to your press and then make adjustments as needed

Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!

For 900ml It looks like I would use about 60 grams of coffee. 30 ounces of water roughly...I'll try that sometime, thanks!

That's just about what I use. My primary ratio in most brewing methods is 60g of coffee per 1L of water.
