Don’t know what constitutes a “strong” instant coffee versus a “regular” whole bean coffee? Here’s a helpful chart.
|Amount of Water||Amount of Ground Coffee (Regular)||Amount of Ground Coffee (Strong)|
|6 fluid ounces||1 tablespoon||2 tablespoons|
|30 fluid ounces||1/4 cup||1/2 cup|
|60 fluid ounces||1/2 cup||1 cup|
Here are some additional tips to help you get the perfect cup of coffee:
- Don't boil or reheat coffee. It cooks out all of the delicate flavors and leaves a bitter taste.
- Don't leave coffee on the burner. The coffee begins to caramelize and will smell "off." For best results, serve immediately or store in a thermal carafe.
- Never mix old coffee grounds with new coffee grounds.
