How Many Grams In A Teaspoon Of Coffee

Are you a coffee lover? Do you obsess over measurements, grinding consistency, and the perfect cup of Joe? Brewing specialty coffee can be an art form. One major factor in achieving barista-quality results is nailing down the precise quantity of grounds to use. Wonder no longer! In this blog post, 

we’ll answer your burning question: how many grams are in a teaspoon of coffee? With simple tips and tricks, you’ll have figured out the right amount of beans or grounds for crafting espresso masterpieces at home like a true barista!

One teaspoon of coffee per 5-6 grams of coffee

As a barista, one of the most important things I’ve learned is the significance of perfect measurements in coffee. Sure, we use different techniques and methods to brew our coffee, but at the end of the day, it all boils down to getting the requisite amount of coffee grounds.

That’s why I always stick to the golden rule of using one teaspoon of coffee for every 5-6 grams. This helps me achieve the right taste and aroma and ensures that my customers get the most out of every cup they drink.

One tablespoon of coffee per 15 grams of coffee

As a barista, I have found the perfect formula for a rich and flavorful cup of coffee: one tablespoon for every 15 grams of beans. This may seem like a small detail, but trust me. It can make all the difference.

Using too much coffee can produce a bitter and overpowering taste, while using too little can make for a weak and unsatisfying cup. By sticking to this ratio, you’ll be able to brew a perfect cup of coffee every time, with just the right balance of flavor and strength. So go ahead, try it, and taste the difference for yourself!


As your favorite barista, I hate to see your coffee conversations end, but all good things must conclude eventually. The final sip is always bittersweet, whether you’re finishing a hot latte on a chilly morning or capping off a long day with a decadent mocha.

But fear not! The end of your coffee cup doesn’t mean the end of your day. Take a moment to savor the rich flavors and reflect on the moments that led you to this point. And before you know it, you’ll eagerly anticipate your next coffee break. Cheers to a satisfying conclusion and the promise of another delicious cup!


Well, well, well, the end is finally here. And as your friendly neighborhood barista, I say, “Cheers to that!” It’s been one heck of a ride. But don’t worry. All good things must come to an end. And while some may dread the conclusion, it is an opportunity for something new and exciting.

So let’s raise our mugs, filled with our favorite brew, and toast to the conclusion of this chapter in our lives. Who knows what the future holds, but one thing’s for sure, we’ll always have coffee to get us through.

You can make a great cup of Joe at home with the proper coffee. Understanding how to measure the beans correctly is critical to making the perfect cup. As a barista, my specialty is correcting the ratio between coffee and water.

I’ve provided all the information needed to accurately measure your coffee, whether it’s through tablespoons or grams. And with different types of roasts, you can follow a different ratio than regular roasted beans. The most important tip is to experiment until you get it right and enjoy that perfectly brewed cup of Joe!
