4 cups is going to take quite a bit of brewing in most home espresso machines (4-8 pots) or about 16 double shots from Starbucks. The Starbucks route makes for an expensive batch of beer.
Still in 5gal that amount sounds about right.
Yes 4 cups.
*What I did*
MY espresso maker has a small insert (for the prepackaged pods) , and a large insert for ground espresso beans.
I just filled it up with ground beans, let it go until my ramekin (probably around .5cup ) was full then poured it into a measuring cup, clean the insert, refill, etc.
It does take a while
However I like the go to starbucks deal, oooo maybe tell them to throw in some hazelnut or vanilla. Might be overkill but sounds interesting.
