[CnD] Grinding Coffee

General rule of thumb is 16 to 1 gram coffee to water ratio. This isn't a hard rule per say. It would also depend on the roast and your method of brewing. With my aeropress, I can go as low as 13/1 and the french press, I can go up to 20/1. Again, depending on the roast and steep time.

The usual preferred amount is one heaping tbsp per 6 oz of water. This all depends on how strong you like your coffee, so play around with it a bit.

As far as grinding goes, I have a Cuisinart DGB-550BK, which grinds my coffee and brews it immediately. You can't set the grind level, and it isn't a bur grinder, but it's a lot better than keeping grounds around.

I have been led to believe that it is possible too use a food processor or a blender to grind the beans, but I would like to know how fine, which setting, etc. should be used.
