  • How long does your coffee last?

    Hi all

    I just got a Jura Ena 9, super automatic machine. I used to drink plunger coffee, one or two a day. Now that I have the jura, Im drinking 3 or 4 cappuccinos a day!

    Just wondering if this is NORMAL?! lol. I love the coffee so much that I just want to drink and drink!!!!!

    Anyway, how long does a 500g bag usually last you guys? Just wondering if i will go through it really quickly or not? I think with my plunger a 500g would last a few months...which I know is a bit of a while cos I can tell the coffee is going stale.

    Probably use around 750g a week - mostly my coffees with a few to my girlfriend, and friends when they pop around

            I have around 6 coffess per day, and may make 4 or 5 only per week for the others. Id go through 500 to 750gm a week.
            Weekends Id have a little more. 1st cup is milk based then after that its ristrettos till evening when I have another milk based drink.

                Working back through my roast records since September last year, converting green weight to roast weight, subtracting a few kilos donated to work / given away, my average consumption at home is around 320 grams / week.
                And then theres probably another 4 coffees a day at work Monday - Friday.

                And no, I dont think Im over-caffeinated. I put it down to stress from work.

                  Good question...been thinking about it myself. Probably 700g+ in a week. 5 coffees a day between 2 people. Dont actually have a 20g basket (15/14g Synesso ridgeless)...but Im trying small quantities of different beans Ive roasted which increases wastage, and also you lose a bit when you purge the ground coffee in the chute each morning...plus I suspect that when my other half makes her coffee in the afternoon a fair bit gets swept into the knockbox.

                    I probably have a few on work days and double that on days off (4 days on, 4 days off). Also a bit of wastage, as every time I come back to the machine I will always purge the grinder, not to mention wastage from distribution. I want a grinder where I can just tamp and go (how much more do I have to spend? haha)

                      I go through 250g in three days on my own at home and I shudder to think how much I drink at work probably twice that much?

                        I drink around 2 double espressos a day and go through about 1kg a month. Depending on the beans its often not too bad at the end of the month.

                              For two of us, its about 300g a week for espresso/aeropress.

                              And, at the risk of getting CSers ire, I must admit we still have premium instant coffee -- about 70g a week
