We have a regular coffee maker, but use a French press alot also. I even have french press travel mug that works great for when traveling on airlines and staying in hotels. Those little 2 mug coffee makers in hotels scare me. I have heard some horror stories of what people use them for.

Anyone care to share their perfect ratio of coffee to water for their French press. I picked one up from Ikea a few years ago but haven't been able to figure out the right combination. Not really interested in purchasing an expensive grinder and I would prefer to use already ground coffee. I have an older grinder from Starbucks though.

Just use coarse ground coffee, Starbucks works fine.
Strength/ideal ratio, it all depends on do you want Lazarus grade (wakes the dead) or weak kneed as to how much you use, we like the former and use six scoops for two substantial cups of coffee (large REI French press).

I own a coffeehouse, and I use 2/3 of a cup to my 32 oz press. I'm so used to a flavorful bold coffee, so this may be a bit much for a lot of people.

We use 8 heaping tablespoons of course grind in our 32oz give it a quick stir (like 2seconds) let it sit for 4 min press and drink. We pour any extra in to a thermos, if it sits in the press to long it gets stronger.

Good luck
