In retrospect, I agree with you within the context in which it was used.
I didn't mention the correct temperature because I couldn't find the temperature at which it was measured.
I brew beer as well as coffee, and brew in 5 gallon batches.  If you have a very small inaccuracy in converting ounces to grams, then that inaccuracy gets multiplied by 640 when talking about 5 gallons (which is not insignificant); but when talking about a coffee to water ratio, any errors are insignificant.

Sorry.

Alan.

Here is a Coffee/Water Ratio chart that I made...Hopefully someone can get some use out of it.

In a slightly different direction:  I like to know how many grams of coffee I have so that I can use the ratio to determine how much water to use.  I prefer my scale be in grams and I simply multiply by whatever ratio I am using to calculate how many ml of water to target.  For example, a little while ago I used the last of some beans.  I weighed the beans, multiplied by the ratio and made myself a (larger than normal) cup of coffee.  In principle I could do the same thing using tablespoons and so on.  I just find the metric to be simpler.

Day to day, I use a coffee measure to measure beans and a fixed volume of water.  Point is, I know what "my" ratio is because I do weigh from time to time as my preferences and the beans change
