  1. It depends on the size of your scoop. Most coffee scoops are 2 tablespoons. Look at the scoop to see if it is labeled with the volume.
    To make coffee, by any method, use 2 tablespoons/10 grams of coffee per 6 oz./180 ml cup. Add or subtract the coffee measure according to your personal taste. For dark roast coffees I usually use 8 grams per cup. For some lighter/blond roasts I may use more.

  2. Grind your coffee coarsely. Plan on one tablespoon (7–8 grams) per cup 6–6.5 oz (say 180–185 milileters) of coffee. I generally let the coffee seap for around 4 minutes before pressing the press to end the brewing time.

  3. If you want to be consistent, measure using weight instead of volume. Coffee beans do not come in uniform sizes so a scoop will not always have the same amount of coffee everytime. That being said, the coffee to water ratio is really a matter of preference, but I find 70 grams of coffee to 1000 grams of water is the right ratio for me when using a french press, that would make 4 cups of coffee, to scale it down to just one cup, that would be 17.5 grams of coffee to 250 grams of water.

  4. That would depend on how much water you’re using. The grind for a French Press is coarse. Using a finer grind tends to make the coffee bitter.
    I suggest starting with a one to one ratio of coarsely ground beans to water. Ie four cups of water and four scoops. You can adjust to taste from there.
