If you are making more than 12 cups at once or want stronger brews then adjust accordingly! You’ll want enough grounds so that they fully saturate while brewing but not too much so there isn’t any room left over after brewing either – especially since this could result in underbrewing which could lead toward bitter tasting beverages later on down the road when left sitting longer than usual (a few hours).


So there you have it, the correct amount of coffee and water to make 12 cups of coffee in a Mr Coffee Perfect cup coffeemaker. You can use this guide on any other brand or type of coffee maker as well!
