  • The Coffee Brewing Center of the Pan American Coffee Bureau established a “Gold Cup” standard for coffee brewing excellence at 2.25 G. per LB in the 1960s. The formula produces a beverage of 1.15% to 1.35% dissolved coffee flavoring material and 98.85% to 98.65% hot water mixed. This standard is endorsed today by Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).
