How Much Coffee Should I Use?

You will find recipes for drip brewing coffee as varied as just about anything. I've seen some that suggest using one rounded tablespoon of grounds per cup to be brewed! Are you freaking kidding me?! That's over 3/4 of a measuring cup of grounds for a 12-cup pot! That's gonna make mud, not coffee.

But maybe you like it that strong, so go ahead.

My mother used 2 tablespoons of coffee to make a pot, it came out like weak tea, but that's the way she liked it, so that's what she did.

At work I measure my coffee by weight, I've found that 2.25 ounces of coffee makes a pretty good 12-cup pot. At home I have a burr grinder on a timer, it took about a week to dial it in, but it now consistently makes a really good brew.

My point is that only you will know how much coffee to use in your particular coffee maker, experiment until you find what works for your palette and then stick with it.

That being said, always start with fresh, cold water (filtered it possible), grind your beans right before you brew and drink it when it's fresh.

Eclipse & Vacation

Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21st there will be a total eclipse of the sun across much of the central US. So I'm headed to Missouri to watch it. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, because the next one to come across the US won't be until 2045. I will be out of town that day, and will be traveling back all day on Tuesday. You can place orders on this web site, but I won't be able to ship them until the end of that week.

Then from August 28th through September 5th, I will be out of town. I've heard people mention this thing called a “vacation” and I thought I'd give it a try. Sounds fun. Again, you can place orders as usual, but I won't be filling or shipping them until later that week.

Muggsy's Beans will be at the Sauk Rapids Farmers Market this summer! We hope to see you there.
