WHAT DO THOSE NUMBERS ON THE SIDE OF MY COFFEE POT MEAN?
Most espresso producers have numbers on the carafe (the espresso pot) to show the number of cups of espresso it will make yet don’t be tricked.
These are not genuine fluid CUPS. These numbers regularly address the quantity of 5 oz. cups of espresso you will yield on the off chance that you filled your carafe to that level.
Along these lines, if your carafe is filled to level “6” you have sufficient espresso to fill six 5 oz. espresso cups – or 30 ounces of espresso. What are the numbers on an espresso pot?
Yet, let’s face it… who is drinking from 5 oz. mugs nowadays!? Most likely, the last time you drank from an espresso mug that little was in your grandma’s parlor and the cup went ahead a fragile saucer.
Nowadays we want everything bigger and better.
Most espresso cups are at least 10 ounces now and anything is possible on how large they can go, so you’ll need to do some math to discover the number of real servings of espresso you get from your carafe dependent on the size of your espresso cups. Your manual can likely assistance here (yet who has their espresso producer manual!?).
You can undoubtedly sort this out twoly – by math or taste.
The Math Method

In the event that you need to make four cups of espresso and you’re serving the espresso in 12-ounce espresso cups, you’d need enough to make 48 ounces of espresso.
This would mean you need to add sufficient water to your espresso producer to fill your carafe almost to the “10” marker – which is 50 ounces of espresso dependent on the data above.
Most espresso organizations suggest utilizing 2 tablespoons of espresso for every 6 ounces of water. We have learned over the long run that most espresso consumers discover this proportion altogether too solid.
For the vast majority, a decent beginning stage for discovering their perfect ratio is by utilizing this equation:
One tablespoon of coffee for every 2 cups of coffee in your coffee pot.
Thus, in light of our model above, in the event that you are filling your carafe to “10” you would have to utilize 5 tablespoons of coffee beans.
From that point, you can add pretty much until you discover the sum that works for your specific taste.
