The Coffee Compass

January 18, 2016

The Brewed Coffee Compass is very simple to use:

  1. Brew a coffee.
  2. Taste it.
  3. If you experience any negative flavours, find them on the map (left).
  4. Those flavours are now the center of the compass (right).
  5.  Find the direction you need to travel in order to get back in the green.
  6. When you brew the next cup, do whatever that arrow says.
  7. Rinse and repeat.

Enjoy, and please let me know how you go!

Hi resolution version here.

Please note, this compass doesn’t:
- work for espresso.
- take into account that your coffee might be of poor quality or roasted badly.
- care about brewing temperature. Just use boiling water.
