A scoop of finely ground coffee makes a stronger cup of coffee than a scoop of coarsely ground coffee. It may take more coarsely ground coffee to achieve the same strength and taste of a finely ground coffee. The type of cup should also be considered when determining how much coffee to use. A coffee cup, roughly the size of a teacup, is approximately 6 ounces. A coffee mug averages between 8 and 9 ounces. To create the same strength coffee in a coffee mug, it may be necessary to use 1.5 standard scoops of coffee.

Tablespoons are a measurement of volume and grams are a measurement of weight, so it is not possible to directly convert grams to tablespoons. To convert grams to tablespoons, it's necessary to know the density of the material being measured. The density of water is about 1 gram per milliliter, so 17 grams of water is equal to 17 milliliters. Seventeen milliliters of water equals 1 tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon.
