Not everybody recommends adding coffee grounds to strawberries either in water or on the ground. Most say to add the coffee to your compost but not to the plants. This seems contrary to popular belief. The garden sites are stating if you do add coffee grounds you should add nitrogen rich fertilizer at the same time as the coffee grounds.

Here are a couple of links that discuss this and add some care instructions.

I don't measure. I just put a circle of grounds around the plant.
