When I’m making coffee in the morning, I want to make it effortless and enjoy my morning time. The last thing I want is precision. I bring the loose approach to the brewing process and I measure coffee with a tablespoon or a scoop.

If you’re the kind of person who likes to keep things simple and you want to use a scoop to measure the coffee, this post is for you.

**How much coffee in a coffee scoop?**

A level coffee scoops hold approximately 2 Tablespoons of coffee.

**How many scoops of coffee per cup of water?**

For a good, strong cup of coffee, you want one scoop per 8 ounces of water. For a weaker cup, you might go with 3/4 of a scoop for one cup, or 1.5 scoops for 2 cups.

### Brewing a pot

If you’re using a carafe to measure water, remember that a “cup” on the carafe is only 5 ounces, not 8 ounces. Here’s how to measure coffee when brewing coffee in your drip coffee maker:

For 2 cups: 10 ounces of water and 1 heaping scoop of coffee

For 3 cups: 15 ounces of water and 2 scoops

For 4 cups: 20 ounces of water and 2.5 scoops

For 5 cups: 25 ounces of water and 3 scoops

For 6 cups: 30 ounces of water and 3 3/4 scoops

For 8 cups: 40 ounces of water and 5 scoops

For 10 cups: 50 ounces of water and 6 1/4 scoops

For 12 cups: 60 ounces of water and 7.5 scoops

### How many scoops of coffee grounds per cup

Here’s how many scoops you need for standard 8-ounce cups:

How many scoops of coffee for one cup: 1 scoop

How many scoops of coffee for 2 cups: 2 scoops

How many scoops of coffee for 3 cups: 3 scoops

How many scoops for 4 cups of coffee: 4 scoops

How many scoops of coffee for 5 cups: 5 scoops

How many scoops of coffee for 6 cups: 6 scoops

How many scoops of coffee for 8 cups: 8 scoops

How many scoops of coffee for 10 cups: 10 scoops

How many scoops of coffee for 12 cups: 12 scoops

### HOW MANY SCOOPS FOR A TRAVEL MUG

Here’s how many scoops you need for different travel mug sizes:

For 10 ounces of coffee: 1 heaping scoop of coffee

For 12 ounces: 1.5 scoop

For 16 ounces: 2 scoops

For 20 ounces: 2.5 scoops

For 24 ounces: 3 scoops

I hope this helps! As I mentioned, this is the ratio for a nice, strong cup of coffee. If you like waker coffee feel free to adjust the amount of coffee to your own taste and use less coffee per cup.
