  1. Depends on what you mean by “cup”.
    The “cups” marked on drip coffee makers are only 6 ounces, not 8.
    For each you want 1 fluid ounce (one Tbsp) of coffee, which would be 5/8 of a standard measuring cup.
    That said, they make the basket that size for a reason. I have found that with even the cheapest Mr. Coffee knockoffs, if you just fill the basket and use the carafe provided to measure the water for a full pot, it comes out about right every time.

  2. The standard coffee measure is to have coffee = 1/15th of the amount of water. Said another way, put in 15 times as much water as coffee.
    Most drip makers use a 6 ounce cup size. So 6 x 10 = 60 ounces of water for 10 cups.
    60/15 = 4. So 4 ounces of coffee per 10 cups. And since there is 1/2 ounce of coffee per tablespoon (since 16 tablespoons equals 8 ounces, 4 ounces = 8 tbspoons.
    So 8 tablespoons for 10 – 6 ounce cups of coffee is standard. If you have a coffee scoop it’s probably 2 tablespoons, so 4 scoops for 10 cups of coffee.
    A lot of people find that too strong, but start there.

  3. When I make coffee in a flat bottom drip pot, I fill the filter basket to within 1/2 inch of the top. I also make a slight well or indentation in the center of the coffee grounds to keep the coffee grounds from sluicing out when the water hits that volume of dry grounds. I don’t drink coffee at home, so I own the cheapest model Mr. Coffee makes because I use it only for guests. This model doesn’t have as good a spray function on the inside, so I give it a little nudge to keep the grounds from exploding over the edge. It works just fine for what I need it to do.
    To get ten cups, fill the reservoir to 12 cups. That mass of coffee grounds soaks up two cups of water as it filters through.

  4. If you have a coffee scoop you may have one of two sizes of scoop. There are 1tbl and 2tbls scoops. If you do not have a scoop you can use a 1tbl measuring spoon. For my 12 “cup” automatic drip coffee maker I use about 7.5 scoops (my scoop is a 2tbl scoop) so about 15 tbls. Adjusting for your coffee maker’s 10 cups that would work out to (15/12*10) or 12.5tbls or a little more than 6 of the larger scoops. Start from there and adjust for your personal tastes (keep in mind that I like my coffee strong.)

  5. I use 12 grams of coffee to prepare a 236-milliliter (8 oz) cup of coffee on a dripper method (more or less the same as a drip coffee maker). So I would start with 120 grams and try how it goes.
