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 to calibrate a Bunn CWTF commercial coffee brewer


1. you need a 64 ounce graduated measuring cup or bucket
2. make sure the brewer is heated up to temp and the green light on the front is lit
3. open the front panel of the brewer
4. put the microswitch on the circuit board to "unlock" position
5. make sure the sprayhead is cleaned and open, the brew basket is on, and the measuring cup is in place to catch the water
6. press and hold the brew switch until the inlet solenoid clicks 3 times, then release
7. once the water level is at about 40 ounces, turn the main red switch off and let the rest of the water come out
8. if it brews short, press and hold the brew switch again until the 3 clicks, then press and release the brew switch for 2 more second of brew time (up to 5 times per brew)
9. if it brews too much, press and release the brew switch for two less seconds of brew time (up to 5 times), then press and hold the brew switch until the 3 clicks then release
10. once you get to 64 ounces, put the switch on the circuit board to lock and replace the panel
11. enjoy!

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.

look for water leaks around pot. Otherwise do a daytime brew to compare your difference between the amount poured in and what comes out. Please note that less water should mean using less ground coffee. Suggest 1 heaping table spoon per brewed cup.

Amount of coffee to use


This is from the FAQ section of West Bend's website at www.focuselectrics.com:

As a guideline, use the following amounts of ground coffee for the number of cups being prepared. Use standard measuring cups ( as used to measure flour, sugar, etc.) to measure the coffee. The amounts of coffee below will brew mild to medium strength coffee which most people prefer. The amount of coffee can be adjusted to suit personal preference. As a guide, there are about 5 cups of coffee to a pound (16 ounces).

  • 12 - 18 Cups Coffee = 1 - 1 1/4 Cups Grounds
  • 20 - 25 Cups Coffee = 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 Cups Grounds
  • 28 - 36 Cups Coffee = 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Grounds
  • 40 - 45 Cups Coffee = 2 - 2 1/2 Cups Grounds
  • 50 - 60 Cups Coffee = 3 - 4 Cups Grounds
  • 70 - 80 Cups Coffee = 4 1/2 - 5 Cups Grounds
  • 90 - 100 Cups Coffee = 5 1/2 - 6 1/4 Cups Grounds

  • Hope this helps. You might also be able to download the manual from there if you look for your model.
