How Many Coffees Can be Made from 1 kg of Coffee?

Coffee is an essential part of many people's daily lives, but the cup of coffee you order from a coffee shop is probably different from the coffee you make at home. What defines the drink is the type of coffee beans used, the way it is roasted, ground and prepared.

Human response to coffee or caffeine can also vary greatly from individual to individual.

Low to moderate doses of caffeine (50-300 mg) can lead to increased alertness, energy and ability to concentrate, while higher doses can have negative effects such as anxiety, restlessness, insomnia and increased heart rate.

Coffee beans

Green coffee beans weigh much more than brown roasted ones. During roasting, 20% of the entire amount of beans is lost, which means that only 8 kg of roasted coffee beans are obtained from 10 kg of green coffee beans.

How many grams of coffee are needed for 1 cup of the beloved invigorating drink?

The standard amount for a single dose of coffee is 7 grams per cup. That's about 56 coffee beans, depending on quite a few factors.

From 1 kilogram of coffee beans you should get about 120-140 cups of coffee. This figure is halved if you drink a double dose - 60-70 cups. If you like the variety of regular coffee and double shots, this will leave you with 90-105 cups from the entire package of coffee beans.


250 g of coffee equals 35 single doses and 17 double doses of coffee.

500 g equals 70 single doses and 35 double doses.

1000 g equals 140 single doses and 70 double doses.

Since you now know how many coffees can be made from 1 kg of coffee, you can prepare the perfect coffee.
