Nice article, exactly what I was looking for to help me cater my own small event.

How many measures (2 tbsp) for a full pot then?

You are exactly right. I tried following the Mr. Coffee instructions and the brew strength was weak. So I experimented and came up with more or less the same measurements.

New to drinking coffee since working nights, I wanted something perhaps more healthful than Mountain Dew! I had a Mr. Coffee that was a gift years ago but never used. I used the instructions that came with it, but the strength has been inconsistent and seemed weak. I'm the only one who drinks it so it's small brew 4 cups max. So I googled some sites and they agree with you. I kept thinking, WHAT? That's too strong. But now when you explained the 5 ounce Mr. Coffee difference, I will try it and see how it works. Another site http://drinks.seriouseats.com/2013/03/why-you-should-use-a-kitchen-scale-to-measure-coffee-coffee-brewing-equipment.html says to weigh everything, the water, and the coffee for consistency. I have a small gram scale and will try that as well.

Great article. Very helpful thanks so much!
