Posted Tue Sep 3, 2013, 3:36pm Subject: How much coffee for 1.25 liters?
The Technivorm coffee maker that I'm buying makes 10 cups which they say equals 1.25 liters total. And 1.25 liters is 1250 grams of water. So In standard brewing ratio how much coffee would I use to that amount of water to achieve a good extraction? And also what ratio of grams of coffee to 1 liter of water do you suggest? I've heard things like 55 grams of coffee to 1 liter of water and such...

55-60gm/l is a pretty standard starting point, and adjust from there to taste. So between 69-75 gm for a full 1.25l.
The American coffee institute (SCAA) tests brewers at 55gm/l, the European Institute tests (ECBC) are between 50 and 60gm/l, which on the face of it seems a bit odd as they are using these ratios to test brewing equipment so you might have expected them to stick to a standard ?
