We keep a pot of coffee primed in our Mr. Coffee maker around the clock. Whoever takes the last cup has to hit the button to start the next pot. About every other day one of us will wash out the implements to the maker. Grounds basket, coffee pot, etc.

Oh to clean the coffee maker I use diluted distilled vinegar. Just brew this stuff and then with clean water and the machine is cleaned.

Ok, that makes sense. I thought you consumed 500+ grams of coffee per week yourself.

Ok, after some calculations, that's doable. Drinking 3 to 4 large mugs of coffee every day, one can easily go through 500 grams per week. :buzzzz:

The amount of grounds used to make a cup or pot of coffee varies greatly. I use 4 scoops (2 Tb each) of dark roast coffee beans for two 16 Oz. mugs of coffee. Many use a lot less. If you drink K-Cups, you don't use nearly that much.

I can handle caffeine, and have no effect on my sleep, but I don't think I can handle that much coffee every week....
