Coffee Quantity for a Crowd

Coffee Quantity for a Crowd – for Percolator

So you’re having a party? How much coffee quantity in a can to buy for a crowd of 100, 50, 25? or more/less.

Keep in mind, most coffee gets stronger as it sits – add a pinch of salt before perking to help avoid bitterness.

We have found organic coffee does the best

If you want it to taste like the upscale shops, use 18% cream (instead of 10%)
