Enter the total grams of water (g) and the total grams of coffee (g) into the Coffee Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Coffee Ratio. 

Coffee Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Coffee Ratio. 

CFR = W / C

  • Where CFR is the Coffee Ratio (water:coffee)
  • W is the total grams of water (g) 
  • C is the total grams of coffee (g) 

How to Calculate Coffee Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Coffee Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total grams of water (g). 
    • The total grams of water (g) is given as: 32.
  2. Next, determine the total grams of coffee (g). 
    • The total grams of coffee (g) is provided as: 2.
  3. Finally, calculate the Coffee Ratio using the equation above: 

CFR = W / C

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

CFR = 32 / 2 = 16:1 (water:coffee)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total grams of water (g) = 150

total grams of coffee (g) = 5

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

CFR = W / C = ?
