The wonderful thing about each and every person’s coffee experience is that it is theirs alone. So while dosing might seem an added complication at first, it is important to remember that your taste buds should be the ultimate judge and jury when deciding on YOUR ratio. Basically you should experiment, have fun and lock in your ratio, but remain flexible and trust your tongue!
For example, I prescribe to a 14 or 15 to 1 ratio of 15 parts water to 1 part coffee. However, I will typically add a bit of cool water to taste and to bring the drinking temperature down, especially when I’m in a hurry.
The way my morning brew usually goes is 40 grams of coffee in the burr grinder and 600 grams of water out of the pot.
