Brew Coffee with an Auto-Drip

The Auto-Drip is the most well-known way to brew coffee; super easy, convenient, and can brew large quantities in a short time! 

Before we get started, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • We suggest using quality Auto-Drip brewers such as the Bonavita BV1900TS 8-Cup One-Touch Coffee Maker, or the Hamilton Beach 2-Way Brewer Coffee Maker. 
  • Since most folks do not own gram scales, the best way to measure dosage is by tablespoons 
  • An easy to way figure out tablespoons to water ratio for auto-drip: ounces of water being used x .35 tablespoons. 
    • E.g. 35oz water x .35 tablespoons = roughly 11 tablespoons (1 tablespoon of ground coffee = 5 grams) 

Dosage: 50-55g (roughly 11 tablespoons) coffee to 900g water (32oz) (1:19) (yields 32oz, 4 cups)

Grind: Medium Coarse (like Kosher Salt)

Filter: Use suggested filter for whatever coffee brewer you are using 

Temp: Machine will auto-set the temp

Total Time: 3-4 minutes (depending on the machine's brew settings)


  1. Measure out water, and pour into water tower
  2. Add paper filter (if your brewer calls for one)
  3. Add the correct dose of coffee (for water being used)
  4. Start brewer, take a shower, flip through a magazine…then enjoy!
