How many grams do you drink per cup or per day?

Discuss flavors, brew temperatures, blending, and cupping notes.

I usually drink a 19g double shot espresso once per day, or if I brew, a single 20g brew.

I'm curious as to how much others drink per day/cup regularly. I've seen some things recently that make me wonder if I am making larger doses per cup @ 20g than most other people. Is it common to brew smaller single serving, closer to 12g-16g?

I drink 1-cup per day usually of 18.2g ground coffee for about 38g of espresso in a 5.5oz cup making a flat white.

My wife usually drinks 1-espresso of decaf per day same ratio with very little milk.

I have one V-60 Monday through Friday. 22g or 25g, depending how I feel.

On weekends, I use my espresso machine. Two or three shots per day, 18g each.

Roughly 220 grams per week.

I brew 60 grams of coffee in 900 ml of water every day and drink about half of that, leaving the rest for my family to combine with creamer and enjoy.

I sometimes add espresso shots to the mix or brew additional pots of coffee if we're having company.

36 to 54 grams per day. For example, two 18 gram shots and one 18 gram Stagg X pourover.

This might be a bit embarrassing given other replies, but... everyday my wife and I have:
1 18g espresso shot for a morning latte
2-3 16g chemex cups

For both of us it's around 800g a week lol
