Coffee Water Ratio-The Gold Cup standard is to brew a ratio of 16.6 parts water to 1 part coffee, this can be converted to grams or ounces. Water Temperature should be 195-205 degrees from the spray head of your brewer before it hits the coffee grounds. If your water isn't hot enough, your coffee will be sour.
In other words, how much of your cup of coffee is actually coffee? Most coffee professionals have agreed that filter coffee tastes best between 18-22% solubles yield at a 1.15-1.45% concentration. This range of possible strengths and extractions, often called “Gold Cup Standard,” are represented by the box in the middle of the chart.
SCAA, the Specialty Coffee Association of America, has come out with their golden ratio, which is approximately. 1:18. So, therefore they recommend 55 grams of coffee for 1000 ml (grams) of water. Obviously this golden ratio depends on your brew method, type of coffee, and personal taste preference.
To achieve the Gold Cup Standard, the correct water-to-coffee ratio is 20:1. That’s 8.25 grams of coffee to 150 milliliters of water, or 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 6 ounces of fresh, cold water. From there, you can adjust to taste. More is typically better.

We recommend following the SCA Gold Cup Standard of 1:16 coffee to water ratio. For this recipe we used 20 grams of coffee which would result in 320 grams of water. Tip: Don’t be afraid to experiment with the 1:16 ratio. We have found 1:15 can taste great as well as a 1:17, depending on the coffee, grinder and taste preferences.

The flavor of brewed coffee is determined by how many solubles are extracted during the brewing process. This is measured by the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) coffee to water ratio. Moccamaster brewers produce the perfect TDS yield of 18% to 22%, as required by the European Coffee Brewing Centre, meeting and exceeding the Gold Cup Standard.
