How To Brew With An Automatic Drip (Video)

Automatic Drip machines are great for when you want to set it and forget it. They're great for making coffee for small groups of people. For Automatic Drip Machines we us the 1 to 16 coffee to water ratio. In this video we will brew 2 cups of coffee. 50 grams of coffee and 800 milliliters of water.

50 grams of coffee is just about a 1/2 cup of whole bean coffee, and 800 milliliters is just about 5 cups when using the coffee carafe to measure out the *cups*. Note that the cups on the coffee carafe are not the same as you'd measure in a kitchen measuring cup.

You may sacrifice some of the clarity or nuances of a manual brew method, but you can still manage to successfully make a pretty darn tasty cup of coffee.


  • Grind your coffee to a medium grind size and add it to your filter
  • Weigh out 800 milliliters of water in your decanter and add it into the machine
  • Start brewing!
