A general rule of thumb is to use 2 tablespoons (10 grams) of ground coffee per 6oz cup (177 ml) of water.
Keep in mind that this ratio may vary depending on a number of factors. These include the type of coffee you’re using, how the coffee is ground and the brewing method used to make the coffee.
For example, if you’re using a coarser grind of coffee, you may need to use more coffee per cup. Conversely, if you’re using a finer grind, you may need to use less coffee. If you find that your coffee is too weak or too strong, simply adjust the amount of coffee you’re using per cup until you find the perfect ratio for your taste buds!
