Talking How Long...

Does a bag of Roastin' Ronnie's last you? I'm finding a bag for me translates into about 5 to 5 1/2 twelve cup pots of absolute bliss and not a drop is wasted. What kind of mileage are you folks getting?

I make espresso with mine, and get about a dozen servings on average, maybe a bit more. I haven't kept the best track!

I have no idea. I drink approximately 3-4 good size cups a day - more on the weekend - till it's gone. More than a week, but probably less than 2. Speaking of.......

My in-laws bought some Trader Joe's coffee & I had a cup of that and I used to love that stuff - I have become a little coffee beeyatch. Luckily we have a great local roaster to fill in the gaps between Ronnie's batches.

This is very subjective It depends on your brewing method, how fine you grind, the steep time, etc.

If I am making drip coffee for Parsley Lady I grind a little finer than the "Automaic drip" grind that you would get if you bought pre-ground (shudder) and I use about 40 grams for 28 oz. of water. That yields three typical american coffee mugs with a little to spare.

If I am brewing in my pourover for me I use 18 grams at about the same grind with 12 oz of water to make one large mug. Clearly I like it stronger :)

When traveling and using my Aeropress I use 14 gr to about 10 oz of water to brew and then top off the cup with hot water (like an Americano, sort of).

For espresso, in my big machine I use a triple basket and about 18 grams of coffee for a 3 oz. triple. In my manual lever machine the basket is smaller (49mm vs 58mm) so I use 12 grams of coffee to get a 1 oz double ristretto.

Confused? Me too

The bags that i use hold approx 12 oz (about 340 grams) for a reference.

Here is a good guide to brewing coffee and some suggestions for the amounts to use with different brewing methods. But, it's really up to individual taste.

We get about a week per bag and unfortunately just ran out. I normally drink a Kona blend from local company but it is no where as good as anything Ron has provided us.

Well alrighty then! By those calculations I'm using about 12.5 grams per mug. I grind it almost as fine as espresso.
