 ```Howdy deanalp-ga, The Coffee Geek website provides us with how much finely ground coffee is needed to make a shot of espresso. http://www.coffeegeek.com/opinions/markprince/07-20-2004 "Espresso: the coffee beverage produced by an espresso machine. This Italian word describes a beverage made from 7 grams of finely ground coffee, producing 1.5 ounces of extracted beverage ..." If your pound of coffee beans yields around a pound of finely ground coffee, then that translates into 454 grams of ground coffee. The CalorieLab website gives us the conversion of pounds to grams. http://calorielab.com/faq/idx/0/019/article/How_many_grams_are_in_a_pound.html "There are 454 grams in a pound ..."" 454 grams divided by the 7 grams needed for each shot, yields us around 65 shots of espresso per pound of finely ground coffee. If you need any clarification, please feel free to ask.
