How much ground coffee is required to make 1 cup of coffee in a 5-cup drip coffee maker?
You need 9 grams of ground coffee to make one cup of coffee in a 5-cup drip coffee maker. Use one scoop or 2-level tablespoons if you don’t have a measuring scale. The amount of coffee you require per cup depends on the size of your coffee cup. The measurements mentioned above are for a standard 4-ounce coffee cup brewed to average strength. If your coffee cup is larger than the standard size, multiply the above measurements by 2 or 3.
For a strong cup of coffee, use 10 grams of ground coffee. Make it 8 grams for a milder strength. If you’re using a tablespoon or scoop, add coffee to the brim or take away about 10%.
How many scoops of coffee for a 5-cup drip coffee maker?

If you’re brewing average-strength coffee, level the coffee using your finger or the flat edge of your kitchen knife.
