How Many Ounces is 600 ml? The Best Way to Measure Coffee

Coffee is a delicious and energizing drink that many people depend on for a morning boost. Some people, however, may have had some bad experiences with coffee. For example, they may have tasted coffee that wasn’t properly measured.

When coffee isn’t measured correctly, the result can be a drink that is way too watery or way too strong. Everyone likes their coffee differently, so the key to making a great cup of coffee is figuring out how to appropriately prepare it and adjust it to your personal tastes.

Love buying a cup of coffee from Starbucks? You can buy the beans instead, and make coffee that’s just as good in the comfort of your own home! It’s just a matter of brewing it with the right portions of water, coffee, milk and other flavorings.

If you’re new to drinking coffee, you’re in for a treat! You might have to spend some time doing trial and error when it comes to making a coffee that’s uniquely perfect for you. This guide is meant to give you a starting point for brewing coffee and answer questions like, “how many ounces is 600 ml?” to help you with ideas for appropriate coffee measurements.


What You Will Need

Prepping Your Coffee Maker

Coffee. You can buy coffee just about anywhere, but choosing the best and most flavorful coffee might take some experimentation. You can choose to either ground coffee beans yourself (you’ll need a coffee grinder) or you can purchase coffee that has already been ground into a thick powdery substance. Pro tip: for flavor and versatility, fresh coffee beans are best. If you want your coffee strong, choose a dark or French blend. For less intense coffee flavor, try a standard or breakfast blend. Medium ground coffee is best for drip coffee blenders.

Water. Fresh, clean water is an important component of great coffee. If you can’t drink water from your tap, consider investing in a water filter, such as the PUR 18 Cup Dispenser, to save on plastic water bottles. Pro tip: when it comes to manual coffee brewing and the overall quality of the coffee, fresh water matters.

A coffee maker. There are hundreds of coffee makers on the market to choose from, and picking one might feel a little overwhelming. When it comes to finding the right coffee maker, quality and price play a large role. Paying a little extra for a better coffee maker can make all the difference in how long the machine lasts and the quality of coffee it makes. The Cuisinart DCC-3200 is a great choice with programming capabilities. You should also consider the Hamilton Beach 49980A if you’re on the go a lot.

Measuring cups. For the water, you can use your coffee pot, which should already have measurements on it. For the coffee, you’ll need a coffee scoop, which holds two tablespoons (the equivalent of 10 grams or 0.36 ounces of coffee grounds). If you want to be really precise, you can use digital scales and Pyrex measuring cups.

Your measurements will depend on how much coffee you’d like to make and how much your coffee maker can handle. If you’re using a special blend, make sure to refer to its instructions on water/coffee ratio.

Cups, milliliters, ounces - they’re all types of measurements, but what do they mean in terms of figuring out how much coffee to use? Milliliters, or mls, are often used to measure very small amounts of something. When it comes to coffee, you’ll more commonly see things measured in ounces (oz) and cups. For example, there are approximately 20 ounces in 600 mls, which is about 2.5 cups.

Generally, one scoop of ground coffee (two tablespoons or 0.36 ounces) is used for every 6 to 8 fluid ounces (0.75 to 1 cup) of water. The standard serving size for coffee is 6 ounces. To make three cups of coffee, here’s what you do:

  • Measure six tablespoons (three scoops of ground coffee)
  • Measure three cups of fresh water with a pitcher or coffee pot

Pour the water into the water compartment of the coffee maker. Dump the scoops of coffee grounds into the filter. Now is the time to manage the settings on your coffee maker if necessary. Many coffee makers will allow you to set a timer for the coffee to brew, so do this if you’re not ready for the coffee to be made yet.

Step Four: Brew the Coffee

Plug in the coffee maker, turn it on and wait! The time it takes for the coffee pot to fill up will depend on how much water and coffee you are using. Always wait until it is completely done before removing the pot. Some coffee makers will have a “pause” function. Others may give a signal when finished.

Make the World’s Best Coffee (For YOUR Taste Buds)

Proper measurement and consistency, for both water and bean grounds, is the secret to making delicious coffee like a professional barista. Start out with 2 tablespoons of coffee grinds for every 6 fluid ounces, and make small adjustments according to your taste. Don’t let one bad experience completely dissuade you from coffee. Choose premium coffee beans, use fresh and filtered water and invest in a reliable coffee maker, such as the Hamilton Beach 49980A.
