# How many tablespoons are in a pound of coffee?

The average number of level tablespoons in a pound of ground coffee tends to be between 75 and 80. There are several variables to consider when answering this question.

Tablespoons and pounds are two different types of measures. A tablespoon is a measure of volume, while a pound is a measure of weight. Thus, there is no direct conversion between the two. A major consideration in a pounds-to-tablespoons conversion involves the coarseness of the grind of the coffee. Coarsely ground coffee occupies more space than the same weight of finely ground coffee, so a pound of coarsely ground coffee generates more tablespoons per pound.
