How many tablespoons of coffee....

How many tablespoons of coffee do you use in your coffeemaker at home, per cup? I remember a time when I used to use 1 tablespoon per 2 cups of coffe. In other words, if the I was making 12 cup pot, I'd use 6. I then realized that I like it stronger, so I switched to 1 tablespoon per cup. Gradually I've increased to almost 2 tablespoons per cup as it says on the bag of many of the coffee beans I buy. I do notice at work though, that they use 3 scoops per pot....way less than 2 tbsp per cup. What the heck! I'm all over the place and it seems I don't know what I'm doing. Can anyone weigh in? I just use a plain old Mr. Coffee at home. Usually I buy Starbucks (i know, i know!) or sometimes Peet's. I like strong but not bitter. Probably my favorite Starbucks is Komodo Dragon. many scoops?
