  1. The Standard Brewing Dosage. The standard brewing dosage for a 6 fluid ounce cup of coffee is 2 tablespoons of ground coffee. If you are brewing your coffee by weight, it is 10.6 grams of coffee per 177 grams of water.

  2. Unfortunately, you haven’t specified much of anything in relation to your question. Cups vary in size, coffee strengths vary widely and the beans themselves exist in a number of different conditions which vary greatly in weight, primarily due to the loss of moisture.
    An easily Googled Internet formula specifies 10.6 grams of coffee per 6 oz “cup”. If that’s the case and we assume we are talking about roasted beans which vary in weight from less than 100 mg each to over 350 mg each, we might choose 200 mg as some kind of average. In that case, there would be 53 beans per cup of coffee.

  3. It depends entirely on how you like your coffee. I can only tell you about how much I use for coffee at home. I use 7 grams for an espresso (small cup) and 10 grams for a large cup. But I like my coffee stronger than most Americans but weaker than most Italian people. Also bear in mind that many grinders need a minimum amount of beans to work on.

  4. I think most people recommend 1–2 rounded Tblsp of ground coffee per cup. The same amount of coffee beans will produce slightly less volume of grounds. I think you could grind 1–2 heaping Tblsp of beans And produce a nice cup of coffee.

  5. Personally, to brew 550 ml, in a moka pot, I use 52 grams of beans! The resulting brew is strong, not something suited to the American palate, that views the tepid, lightly colored, solution, issuing forth, from their poor excuses, for “COFFEE MACHINES” and other contraptions, as coffee!

  6. I’ve never thought to count the beans. I just use a teaspoonful, well heaped, per cup of coffee.
    If you really want to know the number of beans, weight a spoonful of coffee and a bean, and do the requisite math.
    I’ll leave you to sort out how to deal with different bean sizes.

  7. For a full bodies roast that is not watery, we recommend four scoops of grounds for a medium sized coffee. Say about ten little beans ground into a 1 tablespoon scoop, then maybe about 40 beans

  8. A standard cup of coffee is 6 ounces (175 ml) The standard coffee measure is 2 tablespoons (11 grams) per cup.

    Since the beans area natural product that is processed before you get it, the weight of each bean will vary greatly. You can’t count out the beans it will make you crazy and your final brew will be inconsistent. My recommendation is get a small scale and weigh the beans +/- 0.5 grams will be normal.

  9. Ignoring the stupid answer below, the real answer is the golden ratio: 18 times as much water as coffee. So, if you use a standard 6 ounces of water, you need 1/18 of that in coffee, or .33 ounces of coffee. That’s 2 teaspoons of coffee per 6 oz of water.

    It depends on your brewing ratio, your coffee beans, and the size of your cup.
    Coffee beans are not the same. From bean to bean, you have different sizes and density.
    Ratio of coffee to water ranges from 1:16–1:20 by weight.
    And a cup is anywhere from 200cc-400cc from person to person.

  11. On average 1 bean can weigh from 0.5 to 1 gram and I usually use 10–15 grams for 220mL of water.
    So you would need around 10 to 30 coffee beans depending on how strong you like it and the variety/size of the coffee you are using.

  12. That depends on how strong you like your coffee. I suggest that you begin with 2 tablespoons and see how you like the taste. You can adjust from there.
