Coffee is delicious, but it’s not necessarily the cheapest delicacy. Do you know how many cups measure out of that 12-ounce or 1-pound bag? Let's compare . the pricing to single purchase cups at your local coffee shop vs. coffee brewing your own @ home. For this guide, let's use 8 oz. as the equivalent of one cup. If you usually consume a 16-oz. travel mug or 12-oz. coffee cup, adjust these numbers by dividing the final number of cups by 2 for the travel mug and by 1.5 for the coffee cup. The recommended coffee to water ratio is about 1:18, listed as 55 grams of coffee per liter of water, meaning that there are 270.5 ounces of coffee or about 34 cups of coffee in a pound, according to the Specialty Coffee Association.
- Drip Coffee Maker: 34 cups of drip coffee per lb. of coffee beans.
- Pour-over brews: 34 cups of pour-over coffee with 1 lb. of beans.
- French Press: 19 cups of French press coffee per pound of beans.
- Cold/Iced concentrate: up to 20 cups of cold brew w/1 lb. coffee.
- Espresso: high coffee to water ratio (1:2) yields 32 shots of espresso per lb. of coffee beans.
