Coffee is one of the most popular drinks on the planet. But how many cups is 200ml of coffee? It's a tricky question, and it's not as easy as it sounds. In this article, we'll show you how to figure out the exact amount of coffee you've put into your cup.

## How Much Coffee is 200ml?

The amount of coffee you put into your cup of joe doesn't come to 200ml, it comes to 400ml. So how does this conversion work?

The reason why you need 400ml of coffee to make 200ml is that coffee contains cream and sugar. In order to make 200ml of coffee without adding cream and sugar, all you need to do is put 200ml of the liquid (coffee) into 200ml of your preferred liquid (tea, water, milk, etc.). So the next time you pour a cup of tea or coffee into your mug, you need to think about the liquid you're pouring and subtract 200ml from 400ml to get the actual amount of coffee.

If your next question is how many cups is 200ml, then we have a little bit of bad news. Because there's not a perfect answer, it's going to take a little bit of figuring out.

## What is a Cup of Coffee?

Coffee is a black liquid. So we're going to get straight to the point here: this article will not tell you how many cups of coffee are in a certain volume of a particular drink. What we will do is explain the measurement of coffee and then show you the formula that we use to calculate how many cups you've put into your cup.

You should be aware that different countries around the world use different measuring tools for coffee. So you should be precise when you are using any of the guidelines below.

How Many Cups Are There in a Cup of Coffee?

The number of cups that you should use in your calculations depends on the country where you live.

## How to Measure Coffee Correctly

How many cups of coffee do you typically drink? Well, if you're taking it in shots or using a machine to brew it, you need to calculate how many coffee grams you're going to have, then figure out how many scoops it takes. This can take a bit of time and it's not something we're going to cover here.

Instead, we're going to assume you're making coffee the usual way. You'll add your hot water and coffee beans, then put it in a filter, place it on a cup, and pour some milk over the top. That's your traditional coffee process, and the amount of coffee you'd measure in 200ml is the same as the amount of coffee you'd measure out of a container.

## Takeaway

It is far more important to choose the right coffee than it is to choose the correct ratio of espresso to the grind of beans to drink.

As a general rule of thumb, 2-3 ounces of coffee should be roughly equal to the amount of liquid you drink in one sitting.
