A proper tablespoon measure ensures both accuracy and consistency.



Measuring out coffee grounds is, perhaps, the most important part of making coffee at home.


Again, coffee is a personal thing, so you will have to play around with the amount of grounds you prefer.


The general rule: 2.5 to 3 tablespoons of medium ground coffee per eight ounces of water.


If you do not have a proper tablespoon measure like the one seen in the image to the right, a heaping soup spoon will suffice. However, using a proper tablespoon measure is both more accurate and consistent.
