Brew Ratio

5- Brew Ratio:

How much ground coffee you use to a make a cup of coffee is an important question to answer. People have different preferences. More coffee means a stronger cup.

Making a strong cup of coffee doesn’t mean making the roast darker, it means adding more coffee. Yet the question remains, what is a good ratio (water to coffee)

A scientist named E.E Lockhart studied coffee in the 1950s, he found out most people in the united states prefer 18:1 ratio. But it all depends on what you prefer.

We in Marid coffee use a ratio of 15:1 because we found that with our lighter roasts, people prefer a higher ratio for a stronger coffee.
