    If you want a good coffee then you should use one full tablespoon per cup. It should be strong but not very strong.

    I use one teaspoon for two cups of coffee.  It really depends on how you like your coffee, strong or weak.  I feel the one teaspoon is strong enough for me.

    Well it depends on the size of your coffee maker,
    I use one small glass, in a regular sized coffe maker.

    I found this measure by try and error, you know, making a lot of coffe with different size of glasses, until I reached the perfect flavor smile

    I think I use about a tablespoon for every two cups....I usually fill the pot up to about 6 or 8 cups (depending) then I add about 3 tablespoons of coffee. Sometimes it's a little stronger than other times but you can always dilute it after. Whereas, a weak cup you cannot fix. I hope this helps!

    For most 6-8 cup coffee makers it takes about 3 table spoons of coffee for a full pot.

    3 level coffee scoops for 12 cups.keep in mind,the longer the coffee sits in the pot the stronger it gets.
