Brew Ratio and Amount: For a 16-oz. cup of coffee, we recommend a 14:1 ratio of water to coffee. This would result in about a heaping 1/3rd Cup (32 grams) of ground coffee.
There are many possible ways to brew coffee using a Clever Dripper. We encourage you to experiment and find the method that produces the best coffee for you!
