what's the perfect coffee measurement?

Let's accept the fact that there are people who just don't know how to make coffee. Not making coffee in the sense that they grow their own coffee but "making coffee" straight from the coffee maker. Experts say the best-tasting brewed coffee starts with the best coffee beans. However, that is only half the trick.

So how much coffee is enough for one cup? Research shows that to make the best-tasting coffee, you should use two tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounce of water. However, it depends on individual taste. You also have a choice of adding skim milk, creamer or half and half to your coffee as well as sugar.

For me, that's one and a half tablespoon for one cup of steaming hot brewed coffee with sugar. That, for me, is the perfect drip coffee.
