SOURCE: How many ounces or cups

For a half gallon of brewed coffee you should start with a "volume" measure of 10 oz. The reason I recommend a volume measure is because the weight could be completely different using light roast or dark roast coffees. Brewing by volume you can have consistency throughout. The main object is to have the same surface area of grounds for your brewing. The 10 oz. volume should equal between 3.75 and 4.25 ounces by weight. Adjust by taste to your palette but don't sway too low in amount of grounds, otherwise you will stand to "over-extract" and your coffee will taste bitter and will have no body or mouth-feel.

### How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?

For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

### Proper amount of coffee grounds for 36 cups

The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them!

The West Bend parts page for this model is here, and there's a link to download the manual. You can see what the manufacturer recommends.

I do coffee by weight. The ratio of 10 grams of coffee for 6 ounces of water seems most common if you look at coffee websites. Make a couple of cups worth, try different amounts, and then scale up to a full pot when you find what works best for you.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!
