After following a thread on the HomeRoaster’s list regarding proportion of coffee in your brew, I started following what one lister mentioned: 40g coffee in a large French Press (8 tasse). His, I think, was a bit larger. So, I’ve been doing it – pulling out the digital scale and weighing the whole bean. But the flavor has been weak. I’ll hold reserve on final judgment, it may be due to allergies at the moment.
But this morning, I kicked up the 3 day rest Rwanda Kinunu Bourbon to 46g for an 8 T FP. The flavor on a 3-3.5 minute brew was fabulous! The overall flavor was much more present and full, but it may have been a bit over the top. I think tomorrow, I’ll try and split the difference, maybe 43-44g.
So, how much ground coffee do you use to make a pot?
