The Perfect Coffee 101: The Drip Pot

Use 1 tablespoon of ground coffee per 2 cups of water.  So I have a 12 cup drip pot and I use 6 tablespoons of grounds.  This is true for all coffee types as well, basic and flavored.  Also, I know it can be hard, but if you can let the coffee settle for 3-5 minutes after brewing, it is so much better.
