The standard is "use what you would drink."
I use 10 shots (15 ounces) of hot brewed Starbucks Espresso at the bottom of the secondary in a 5 gallon batch, for the AHS Redhook Double Black Stout clone. Double Black was a collaboration between the Seattle based Redhook and Starbucks. As SWMBO's favorite, this is the only brew that is firmly in my rotation.
