The Importance Of The Coffee dosage spoon (why measuring matters)

When it comes to making that perfect cup of coffee, measuring matters. If you’re using coffee pods in your Tecnora Cremiere 106A or the Classico 107M espresso coffee maker machine, the work is already done. But if you’re using loose coffee powder and a drip coffee maker, then you need to pay attention.

The optimal ratio of coffee powder to water is 2 tablespoons of coffee to 8 oz of water. This appears to be a general consensus and works for us, too. But wait…is it a level tablespoon or a heaped tablespoon? There’s a difference.

Most machines come with a scoop, so you’re sorted. You simply use two scoops for every 8 oz of water.  But wait… did you check that your scoop is really equal to one tablespoon? Scoops come in different sizes so it pays to check. There’s a reason this ratio of coffee powder to water is touted as the optimum – it’s because it results in the best cup of coffee.

Tecnora automatic and semi-automatic espresso coffee makers take the math out of it all. Each machine comes with a come with a 7-gram scoop good for one shot of espresso.

How easy can it be?
