Enter the total cups of coffee desired (cups) into the Cold Brew Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the number of cups of coffee grounds needed.

Cold Brew Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Cold Brew Ratio. 

GC = CC / 4

  • Where GC is the Cold Brew Ratio (cups of coffee grounds needed)
  • CC is the total cups of coffee desired (cups) 

How to Calculate Cold Brew Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Cold Brew Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total cups of coffee desired (cups). 
    • The total cups of coffee desired (cups) is given as: 10.
  2. Finally, calculate the Cold Brew Ratio using the equation above: 

GC = CC / 4

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

GC = CC / 4 = 2.5 (cups of coffee grounds)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total cups of coffee desired (cups) = 6

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

GC = CC / 4 = ?
