For Single-Serve Coffee Pods
For this chart, all 16 pods were brewed to an 8 oz cup in a Keurig® K200. Brew Strength was measured by VST Refractometer.
Fill weights and actual brew volumes (varying from 200 mL to 217 mL) were used to calculate Extraction Yields.
This study makes it clear that to achieve 8 ounces of barista quality brew, a single serve pod must contain at least 11-13 grams of coffee at 300-450 micrometer grind size.
Finally, you can ENJOY barista quality with your K-Cup brewer!
