About The Acaia Brewing Print Feature:
This is our answer to the people who asked how we can make coffee taste better. During the process of connected with Acaia Coffee Scale, we create a chart related with time and water. This chart will show how this brewing process is completed. By using this chart, I get to know how my brewing process looks like comparing with experts who can accurately control the blooming time, infusion time and stability of the pouring process. This gives me an idea of what might be the possible reason for making this great cup of coffee.
It may not be the final answer for different results of coffee brewing, but sure gives us the most accurate information of these variables. The Acaia Brewing Print is a combination of design and the integration of technology, and this is how it will help you visualize and brew a better coffee, more importantly, you can tweet and share it with people who care about coffee.

Ratings and Reviews
For a $200 scale I expected a half-way thought out app that would get regular updates. This app has been abandoned and is as functionally designed as the scale itself which has trouble responding to touch sometimes and as a coffee scale somehow can’t handle heat without an extra rubber mat. The on-boarding is long and tedious, the recording process is not intuitive, and the app is handicapped if you don’t register and log in. At least the Bluetooth connection on launch is always reliable!
All I want in this app is a way to configure settings to turn off beeps, change units, and perhaps remove/configure my scale’s modes to make it easier for me to tare, pour, and start a timer on the scale without launching the app in the first place. The graphs and social suggestions could be nice but are definitely secondary.
I really want to love this scale since but at the moment it feels like a $200 scale under-designed for its coffee pour tracking potential. Watch someone new try to use it for the first time and you’ll find all you need to improve to make it a better experience.
Needs user input for improvements
App is disappointing, and not aligned with very high quality of the scale. While it has potential, this app is not very user friendly — it’s ok for very basic tracking, but there is tremendous room for improvement in user flow, features, and overall value and functionality. Simple elements that are common in most other apps and software we all use are missing here. Few examples: can’t easily repeat or copy a prior Print, visual layout (ex: some information doesn’t fully show when viewing a saved Print), field flexibility (ex: grind size should allow user to enter letters, numbers, etc. as needed), etc. There should be an easier way to view my own saved history than going to the feed. IMPORTANT: Developer should survey or interview a number of real users to identify missing pieces. Better yet, developer should include a cross-section of real users in the planning process for making the next phases of this app worthy of the scale, — something that helps users learn, experiment, track, and enjoy their favorite beverage much better.
better coffee with this app
I'm sorry people have trouble with this app! For me, on my iPhone X, it works perfectly. And by timing pourovers optimized for various driippers, it helps me make notably better coffee. I've been making pourover coffee for quite awhile, following directions I and others have seen online, but this app — paired with the scale — makes better coffee than I've made before.
It's true the app could be better designed. Acaia might hook up with an app design expert, and fix what seem like immature, things that apps once did, but that now wouldn't be tolerated in apps that functioned in a commercial arena, and have competition for what they do (as this one doesn't).
One example, thst others have noticed. The app will guide us through using a great variety of ways of making coffee, but it defaults to the Hario V60 dripper, which is always selected when the app opens. Which is fine if you have a V60 and always use it, but if you always use something else, then you're forced to take a extra step each time you use the app. Silly. And so easy for an app designer to fix!
There are some other things, and it's also true, as people have said here, that the scale seems baffling at first.
But, bottom line — the app works perfectly for me, and helps me make better coffee. Never crashes, easy to use, never fails to connect via Bluetooth to the scale. So four stars, despite things Acaia should fix.
