The Coffee to Water Amounts calculator approximates the amount of water or grounds that you need to make a certain amount of coffee. This version of the calculator returns the amount of both coffee grounds and water by volume. If you prefer to measure water and grounds by weight for the best precision you can use the other version:

To repeatedly make a cup of coffee the just the way you like it you need to know how much grounds to use for that amount of water. If you always make exactly the same size pot then you probably have the amounts memorized. if however, you need to make a smaller or larger amount then usual you might be unsure exactly how much coffee grounds to use to get the same strength of coffee that you are used to. If you want to take the time to work it out the math is not difficult but we have created a calculator to make it faster and easier. The calculator has 7 different ratios of coffee to water from 13:1(stronger) to 19:1(weaker).
If you aren't sure of the ratio that you prefer use our Coffee to Water Ratio calculator to input the amount of coffee and water you use for your perfect cup and find out the ratio so you can apply it to different sized batches.
