How many beans per cup?


Recommended Posts

I've just acquired a Magnifica ESAM4200 Bean to Cup machine. The instructions say to fill up the bean compartment but don't the unused beans go stale?? Is there a guide to how many grams of beans to put in per cup?

How big is bean compartment? 

You can keep beans in a hopper for about a week just fine, so if the compartment is small there wouldn't be an issue (unless it isn't sealed at all or gets hot).

I used to fill it tbh.... and it lasted about 2 or 3 days,that was with 4 double dosed coffees per day. the single dose on maximum pushes about 18g thru based on my measurements. a coffee expert would be horrified, but then they likely would turn their nose up at this machine anyway.... I wouldn't worry I think I'm saying, if it tastes OK then just fill it up and enjoy the coffee :)

It's about 2x6 inches. It has a lid but not airtight. I'm just surprised there's not more exact advice on quantity. If I'm mostly drinking coffee at the weekend, unused beans are going to lose taste I'd have thought.

I was intrigued by this question: a 17.5g dose of the current beans I am brewing (a Peruvian El Palto from Pharmacie) works out at exactly 100 beans.

Just weigh out 18g x the number you’ll drink over the weekend and add a bit.... if you run out put more in next time, if you don’t then put in less.


Alternatively count out 100 beans x the number you want to drink smile.png.386586528d215eb32622a010fd075179.png
