So, even as a funny as it sounds, I wanna go ahead and purchase a BUNN VP17-1 SS Pourover Coffee Brewer (Commercial) Because i'm looking for a coffeehouse like taste. It's a 64 oz pot for the brewer, and I wanted a thermal but I'll live...But my questions is how much coffee should I use for 64 oz of water, I cant seem to find a solid answer. It varies! And I'm looking for a ratio that will give me a good extraction rate. I like a good strong cup of coffee! I'm think like 3.25-3.75 ounces of coffee grounds.



Oh, and for any reason, would I need to add a tad more water due to evaporation? Thanks!

Your current amounts of 3.25-3.75 ounces are probably in the right range, but the BUNN you're considering might call for a little more or less. Personally, I use higher amounts than that with all my brew methods -- lowest with the Technivorm, highest with chemex. But it all depends on what the BUNN likes. Good luck!

I spoke with a barista yesterday night who confirmed my ratio's. She said for half a gallon of water, they said use roughly 92 grams or about 3.2 ounces of coffee. To me that's basically what has been recommended by Bunn for the golden cup award. Anything higher, I may use if I find that ratio a tad weak...Somewhere around 3.75 or 4 ounces of coffee at least. That is the most i'd use for such a coffee maker.

I'd be curious to know what ratio of grounds to water you use in your TV.  I have been doing 60 grams per litre of water, but I consider the results to be a bit on the weak side. I have my grinder set in the fine area, which follows the conventional wisdom of most owners.

Actually, your ratio of 60g to 1 liter is really close to my typical TV measurements. For paper I use 1.75g of coffee per 1oz of water ...for SwissGold I up the coffee amount to 1.82g (sorry if the grams-to-ounces method is confusing). I grind at a medium-fine level and usually don't have problems with weaker coffee. If I had to adjust anything, I'd probably leave the grind settings alone and up the coffee amounts, but only slightly. Actually, since getting a Kone filter for my Chemex, I've been using the TV a lot less. I also added steel burrs to my Vario, and that combined with the Kone has produced some amazing coffee.
