How many grams of coffee for AeroPress coffee makers?Updated a year ago

A lot of people want to know how much coffee to use when they first begin brewing with an AeroPress coffee maker. As a starting point, we recommend one heaping scoop of medium-fine grind coffee, or 14-15 grams of coffee per cup.

All AeroPress scoops have the same capacity. A level scoop holds 11.5 grams of coffee or about 2.5 tablespoons. A heaping (rounded) scoop of coffee holds 14-15 grams or around 3 tablespoons.
