Posted Mon Jun 25, 2012, 10:38am Subject: Re: Computing Brew Ratio and Measuring Water
I've followed a ratio similar to Netphilosopher's for years — almost to the point that brewing the morning coffee for my wife and me is a rote, mechanical process. I don't always adjust the amount of coffee beans to get right on to 60 grams, if my measure comes out to 61 or 62, that's OK. My drip coffee maker has markings on it that can measure out to exactly 1 liter, so I aim for that mark, so we use slightly more than 57.5 as specified. We get excellent coffee using this process every morning without the hassle of weighing out the water.
Correct our not, I lean to #2, especially when doing smaller amounts such as a Hario 2 cup (10oz yield of brewed coffee starting with 12oz for heated water, 18 grams of just finer than drip grind coffee) YMMV. Of course, regardless of brewing method, remember to thoroughly rinse your filter with a good amount of hot water before depositing the coffee in your paper filter.
