How many pots can you brew with a pound of coffee?

We are taking a month-long hiking-camping trip.

If you are making a 10 cup pot I would say approximately 8 pots. If you like weaker coffee than ou can probably get 10 pots from a pound.

It varies depending on how strong you like your coffee. If you follow normal coffee can or bag directions and use one scoop of coffee for every 6 ounce cup, you will get around 46 cups per pound of coffee used. You could use less though if one scoop per cup is to strong and thus get more cups.

Assuming a pot equals 36 ounces of coffee (6 cups): You should use about 2 ounces of coffee per pot. A pound of coffee has 16 ounces in it. Therefore, you should be able to get 32 pots of brewed coffee from. If you're brewing 2 cups at a time for your trip, you'll get 3 times that (96 pots).

Generally, you can get 80 cups from a pound. There's usually 10 cups to a pot. If you like your coffee stronger or lighter will determine if that amount holds true. You'll not likely use that amount, but for a month long trip, I'd take 2 pounds.

Forty one cups of coffee per pound of ground coffee (using an eight ounce cup). 11gm per cup, 454gm per pound. Five pots of coffee brewing 64oz coffee per pot.
