Brewing Guide: Espresso
Use approx. 19g of fine ground coffee. Aim to yield 38g (ml) of expresso extracted in approx. 25 seconds. Generally try a ratio of 1:2 i.e. 19g in, yielding 38g out.
Brewing guide: French Press
Carafes vary in size, but the measure is the same: about 2 round tablespoons per 8oz of water – more precise 7 grams per cup. For a 20oz French Press use 50 grams of coffee.
