The exact number of scoops used depends on how much water the coffee pot holds and the size of the scoop. Most coffee pots come with a scoop that measures one tablespoon.

The amount of coffee needed for a pot can also vary depending on personal tastes. If strong coffee is desired, add 3 tablespoons of coffee per six ounces of water (36 tablespoons or a little over 2 cups per pot). For a little less bitter coffee, only use 1 tablespoon of ground coffee per six ounces of water (12 tablespoons or 3/4-cup per pot).
