What is the best coffee-to-water ratio for brewing?

The ideal coffee-to-water ratio for brewing coffee depends on personal preference and the brewing method being used. However, a good starting point is a ratio of 1:15 or 1:16.

This means using 1 part coffee to 15 or 16 parts water, by weight. For example, for a 12-ounce (355 ml) cup of coffee, you would use about 21-24 grams of coffee and 340-360 ml of water. Adjust the ratio as needed to achieve the desired strength and flavor.

Keep in mind that different brewing methods may require different ratios. For example, pour-over and French press methods may use a slightly different ratio compared to drip coffee makers. It's also important to use a consistent grind size and brewing method to achieve consistent results.

The best coffee-to-water ratio is one that produces a cup of coffee that you enjoy and suits your taste preferences. Experiment with different ratios and brewing methods to find the one that works best for you.
