Grind your coffee very fine (espresso grind) and it will go much further. Only use half your normal amount of scoops to get the same or even darker pot of coffee. You may need to use a double filter in your drip coffee maker so no grounds get through.
We have been doing this for awhile now and are very pleased with the results. And, our coffee costs are going down so we are even able to purchase socially responsible coffee also.

Socially responsible coffee is that which is grown by people who are paid a decent wage. It is usually called,"Fair Trade". I get my coffee from a coop that is in Mexico and they not only grow the coffee but roast and package it there.
I buy espresso (but very inexpensively!) called CAFE LA LLAVE. If you can find it at a supermarket (I get it at Stater Bros in Big Bear Lake CA)buy the "brick" - it's even cheaper in the compressed pkg, a little more in the can. Dark Green packaging. Best coffee! Use it as espresso or back-off the scoopful and use as regular coffee. I am a dark roast fan and I recommend it highly. Have used it for some years now.
I have the same question what is soc. resp. coffee? Please add detail so those of us who are not in the know can figure out what this refers too. Thanks much.
I have heard this before but never tried it but it would seem like it would work. We don't drink an overabundance of coffee at home but it is so expensive now this is worth a try.
I mix generic or store brand coffee with a Big Shot brand (if I have a coupon for it!)
