On vaycay and place has a Mr Coffee 4 cup pot. I brought my Hario Slim along and picked up some coffee from a roaster in the area we found. Except I haven't used drip in so long I can't remember how much (grams or tablespoons etc) to use. Any ideas to start would be nice so I can make some coffee in the morning lol

Hi,

A good starting point is around 17:1 by weight. Hope this is in time for the morning cup! :)

According to the SCAA:

When cupping, the ratio of 8.25 grams (whole bean) coffee ( 0.25 grams), to 5.07 fluid ounces (150 ml) water shall be used. When adjusting due to vessel size, a ratio of 1.63 grams (whole bean) coffee per 1 fluid ounce of water (or 0.055 g coffee per 1 ml water) shall be used.

Now - how you adapt that to drip coffee is an interesting question.  I can tell you that for a Technivorm drip machine, 7 grams / cup is a good starting point.

Yeh I filled to 6 cup and on Hario Slim I know I measured before and each cup line on it is around 12 grams. Coffee came out pretty good, its fresh roasted Yirgacheffe and forget what the other bean mixed in was (think it was fancy kona). Even her fam was like damn thats good, really really smooth. Shows that if you have fresh coffee and fresh grinded, even a Mr Coffee can make a dang good brew.

Theres another place where were staying (Mission Beach) couple blocks down called Buzz Coffee Roasters or something like that. I know Bird Rock is here too.

Hello.  Regarding your Technivorm statement, how many fluid oz. of water per cup are you referencing?
