Default Tips on making good coffee

I can't seem to figure out a good method of making good coffee. I have a flat bottom filter drip machine, mr coffee.

If I'm making 8 cups, i know a half cup will be absorbed into the grounds and evaporate. so I pour 8.5 cups.

For a maximum flavor profile on the coffee (without adding too many grounds), what's the grounds:water ratio in yalls experience?

I will go as far as weight measure the grounds before pouring it into the filter.

Thx

I have a Cuisinart Grind N Brew. I love coffee made with fresh ground coffee beans.

I use a heaping coffee scoop of of beans for each cup. I use a blend of flavored coffee beans, never really the same each time. I just go by what smells and tastes good (yes, I sample the roasted beans with the OK of the employee) when I am at the store. They roast their beans right in the store and it smells like heaven. Fairway Market has great loose tea also.

I also add about an extra 1/2 to 1 measure (line on pot) of water.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

So do I. Gone is the day I make a full pot and drink all of it! One cup each morning and if both eyes aren’t open by then maybe a second.

I live in a town with a coffee factory that has a little retail store, and I purchase good coffee beans from there. Like Peep, I grind the beans fresh every morning for my Mr. Coffee automatic drip.

It may be stating the obvious, but good-tasting coffee depends mainly on using coffee that's fresh and whose flavor you like.

I like a "light roast" as opposed to "medium" or "dark" roast.

I use one heaping scoop of beans for every 2 cups of coffee. I add water up to the line for the amount of coffee I want; I don't worry about the 1/2 cup or so that I lose, since I usually make 6 or 8 cups.
