    hahaha! I actually wasn't much of a coffee drinker before I had an 8 o'clock chemistry class. But I've really come to like a good cup. And not much can beat a good shade grown coffee, although it can get expensive.

    I think you have to experiment and go with personal taste. I can't even say how much I use. I grind a certain amount (which is not always accurate with my inexpensive but useful grinder), then I pour the grounds in the filter basket, and judging by eyeball, estimate the amount of water I need to add.
    Personally, I like my coffee just shy of being able to stand a spoon up in it.
    I broke the carafe for my french press a while back and haven't replaced it. I need to get another one. IMHO, nothing tastes as good as french press.

    Daughter-in-law discovered I was using 1-1/2 tbsp measuring tool - changed to 1 tbsp of Folger's Classic Roast to 6 oz of water - it's better but could use improvement.

    I make a 3 cup pot every morning and there's very little day to day consistency. 'Bout once every 15 mornings I have a good strong pot that I really enjoy. Not a very good win ratio.

    I always have a cigar with mine.

    Sprinkle a little salt on top of the grounds to make it kind'a mellow - helps.

    This morning, 4 heaping heaping tbsp of Folgers to 24 ozs of water, including 4 shakes of the salt shaker on grounds.

    A good cup and a Padilla fumas Sumatra to start off the day.
