    Pot of coffee versus pot of coffee - bean counter

    Primal Fuel
    When people say they are drinking a cup or a pot of coffee, it means nothing. I can take 1/2 cup of beans and brew it into one cup or a whole pot! Why aren't we saying how many beans we brewed instead?!

    I weigh my water and coffee. I use a 1:19 ratio of bean to water.

    I just measure add beans to the grinder until I hit a certain line on it. I know that more beans is too strong and less beans is too weak.

    I don't count the beans because I have a life. and friends. and a job. a wife. a baby on the way. 2 dogs. and countless other things I can do with my time that doesn't involve counting coffee beans.

    Well, yeah. I don't mean actually counting bean by bean! But the finished product is mostly water with some plant extract. Having more or less water to the same amount of extract ought not quality as more or less coffee. We really ought to say we brewed a given weight or volume or coffee beans into x water.

    this seems like a topic a really bored person came up with. are you off from work today knifey? lol.

    I know what you're saying though. a "pot" or "cup" of coffee can mean so many things to so many different people. it could be single origin, freshly ground, french pressed coffee, made moderately strong like I make it. or it could be folgers in a drip machine, made super weak or super strong like others make it.

    You're totally right, you're just overthinking this. Different beans & different roasts have different amounts of the particular extractives anyway. It's not precise to say "I drank a pot of coffee," but it doesn't really need to be.
