Satori Coffee Brew Guide

Satori Brewing Guide

This is a complete one-page brewing guide for anyone who wants to learn and hone up their knowledge on how to make great tasting coffee every morning.

Recommended Grind Size Chart

The top part of the guide consists of the recommended grind sizes for all brewing equipment. This makes sure you can work with any equipment at home and you can make sure to get the grind size right.


Satori Brewing Wheel

The second half consists of the Satori Brewing Wheel. It's a great tool to help brewers know what to adjust on their next batch of coffee.

The instructions are simple. Find the words that best describe for your brew. We have the general words to describe coffee found on the outermost part of the circle (Strong, Weak, Sour, and Bitter).

For more experienced coffee tasters, we have more nuanced taste descriptions found on the inner part of the circle.

If you found your words near to the center of the guide, then you're already in the right spot for a great tasting coffee.

Now once you've found the word to best describe your brew, take note of the coffee extraction and coffee ratio found on the outer ring denoted as OE, UE, HCR, and LCR. Use this as a guide on what to adjust on your next brew.

Brewing Results Recommendation
Over Extracted (OE) Reduce extraction by using a coarser grind and/or using a shorter brew time
Under Extracted (UE) Improve extraction by using a finer grind and/or using a longer brew time
High Coffee Ratio (HCR) Reduce coffee ratio by decreasing the amount of increasing water volume
Low Coffee Ratio (LCR) Increase coffee ratio by increasing the amount of coffee or decreasing water volume



Getting the Perfect Brew

For coffee enthusiasts who really want to hit that perfect taste for the cup of coffee, you can also use the Satori Brew Wheel to do some minor adjustments to guide your brew to that perfect spot.

For example, you ended up with a great 'fruity' taste to your brew, but you're still looking for that 'smooth' coffee profile. Since the 'Smooth' word is found on the Sour side of the wheel, it's stated that you would need to make your next brew a bit under-extracted (UE) and do a few minor adjustments to increase the coffee ratio (HCR).
