So I finally got around to buying a Technivorm! And I'm looking for a good ratio of grams to coffee for 1 liter of water...As I found using a smaller amount of coffee and water like that will help me for many reasons. So what do you like? I've heard 55-60 grams a liter all the way up too 62-70 grams! Thoughts?

60g/l - but there isn't a right or wrong answer - coffee strength is entirely down to your personal taste.

Enjoy the Technivorm - they are very good brewers.

The Technivorm is an amazing coffee maker! However I'm still working out the grind and amount of coffee to use to make it brew the coffee the way it should. My first ever attempt at making coffee was on grind "16" on my encore and it was BITTER. So "20" seems good for me I think...I've heard 18-22 is good for Auto-drip. I'm planning to buy a better scale because I believe my current scale is inaccurate for my measuring and my coffee sucks due to that as well! I also starting stiring the coffee for full saturation because the TV doesn't saturate correctly and I've had weak cups a lot! I noticed the coffee bed isn't touched and water drips down the middle...Under extracted coffee -_-

Yes, itís true that coffee to water ratio is up to your personal taste. We have different coffee strength we preferred and probably others might like your taste and others may not. But there is a standard water ratio with this Coffee Brewing Ratio Charts. Just check out http://www.blackbearcoffee.com/resources/83, this may help you.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

I like 60-65 grams per liter. Higher for Central American coffees, lower for Africans and other more complex coffees.
