Thjis, do a CG search for Moccamaster, There are many threads.
Google "How many grams of coffee for Moccamaster, etc'
There are hundreds of threads for various Baratza grinders.
Read the MANUAL, all should be clear.

Ha.
Well, i cant help you with the moccamaster, but which baratza grinder have you? I've owned, or OWN every one but the Encore, which is basically an improved Maestro + that does espresso decently.

Hello, Thijs

60g/litre is a good starting point.  From there, adjust to what suits your palate.

You can use any type of coffee.  It is best to experiment and find out what you like. Fresher is always better.

I do not know your grinder, but try it at about the middle point of its grinding range.

The Moccamaster range are very good coffee makers.

I use 2 full tablespoons of whole beans for every 16 oz of water. Or 6 full tablespoons for a full pot. On my Virtroso I have it set on 20, or center on the dial.
