CGC Brewer Dose Guidelines
Golden Cup Standard, as set by the SCAA, requires that the proper coffee to water ratio is used.
This ratio is expressed as “ ‘x’ parts of water/1 part of coffee”. The maximum range allowed is 15:1 to
20:1. While the Golden Cup is achievable at those extremes, you will have better luck using a range
of 16:1 to 18:1.
The CGC brewer has a default setting of 12, 16 and 20 oz. brew volumes. For accuracy, use
grams to determine the proper coffee to water ratio. The ratios shown are the SCAA guidelines.
You do not have to fall within these guidelines. In fact, many of our customers use too little coffee
(ratios above 20:1) Newer “pour over” style brew bars use a ratio of 14:1 or less. It is important that
you are familiar with what the Golden Cup Standard is and how to achieve it. Then, it’s up to you to
read your customer and brew them their perfect cup of coffee.
