Does anyone know a exact measurement on how much a 1/2 a cup of ground coffee weighs in grams? I'm looking to measure out half a cup of folgers coffee...

There's no way to give you an accurate answer, as it depends a lot on ambient temp, humidity and age of the coffee.  You're best off using a scale to see for yourself. Oh, and what on G-d's green earth are you doing with Folger's????

I didn't have any coffee beans, and I didn't want to spend a ton of money to order some. They wouldn't have been here by today for the morning. So, I got a small can for $3. It does the job for my caffeine in the morning...

UMMMM, yuck!
In a pinch I have used fresh roasted beans from a coffee shop who buy from  roaster I do not like but it is easy to get to them as they are local.
Most times if that is not an option, I will do without. Just this morning, at work, we had a free breakfast hosted by a manager. They served "coffee" and while I knew it would be bad, at first it seemed at least drinkable. The after taste haunted me for a long time though, very bitter and stale tasting. It only made my resolve stronger about not drinking "commercial coffee"

This is not a dig, I tip my hat to you for being able to find something drinkable from a can!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

As Seven of Nine would say on Star Trek Voyager: Its irrelevant.
You will just get two kinds of a similar thing.  

Lighter looking bad coffee.  
   

Darker looking bad coffee.  

Then I thought I would try to google you an answer rather than actually grind up real coffee beans I have and get out my
scale and measure it out. So here is my data.
I went online and found that 4 cups of ground coffee equals 26 ounces,I divided that by 4 and got 6.5 ounces per cup of ground coffee.
I divided that in half and got 3.25 ounces representing 1/2 cup. Then I found that 1 ounce equals roughly 28 grams. I them multiplied 3.25 by 28 arriving at roughly
around 91 grams. I then contacted Star Fleet Command and turned myself in for violating the prime directive
since Folger drinkers are to me a sub species alien life form and I interfered with them . ( I hope you know Im joking )

But in the end what your trying to do is measure how much bad coffee it takes to make a cup of bad coffee.

You canít get exact weighs in a cup of coffee. Normally, if it is finer ground then it is heavier than coarse one.

 
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.
