— Coffee Tracking —
Brew Timer comes with detailed coffee tracking built in. You can track everything from the simple "Name" and "Roaster", to the more fine-grained details like "Varietal" and "Harvest Date". To save you from typing it all out, on iOS 15 and later Brew Timer supports scanning coffee bags to automatically extract these coffee details for you.

— Brew Journal —
Every time you complete a brew, Brew Timer creates a new entry in your personal Brew Journal. Grind, coffee and water amounts are all tracked automatically. Record your own notes to capture thoughts on technique and taste for next time.

— Brew Dashboard —
After each brew, Brew Timer compiles a one-stop dashboard to make it easy to add tasting notes, reference coffee details, and tweak your recipe for next time.

Brew Timer supports metric (mL/g) and imperial (fl. oz/oz) and will convert recipes to Aeropress-specific units for you.
Brew Timer works without a scale, but it is recommended.

What’s New

Version 1.18

Searchable coffees. Brew summaries. Coffee color picker. And more!

Coffee Search ’n Summaries
When dialing in new beans, it’s helpful to learn from your past brews. Now with Brew Timer it’s also easy. First, use the brand new Coffee Search to find a similar coffee. Every coffee is fully searchable across any dimension — country, process, roaster, you name it.

Once you find a similar coffee, you can use it to pick a good starting point for your new beans. Just tap the new book icon in the top right to view the full list of associated journal entries. If you just want the high-level picture, Brew Timer gives you a summary of your settings right at the top.

Not tracking your coffees yet? Start today and enhance all your future brews.

Coffee Color Picker
Coffee roasters often choose a distinct color for each bag of coffee. Now you can use the same colors in Brew Timer! To make it easy, you can even use your camera to pick a color straight from the bag! Tap the palette icon (to the right of the coffee’s name) while editing a coffee to get started.

Revamped Labs
Do you like to stay on the cutting edge? Be sure to check out the Brew Timer Labs in the app’s settings. It’s got a slick new design which makes it easier to see all the new and updated experiments.

Tiny Things
• Made it easier to paste or scan text into fields when editing a coffee. It was a little finicky before but now you can tap anywhere in the row to show the standard Paste menu.
• Updated the brew journal to show the full date for older brews. This should make it easier to find old entries since they now won’t all say "1 year ago".
• Straightened out some confusing naming between brews and recipes.
• Added a checkmark when viewing sort options for a list of coffees. Now you can easily tell how they are currently sorted.
• Fixed a bug where text in the Settings coffee list would sometimes get clipped.
• Fixed a few bugs which could cause your list of coffees to lag and stutter. It should be silky smooth now, even while searching!
• Fixed a rare crash when adjusting your grind after completing a brew then changing the associated grinder.

Best coffee brew app ever!

Thanks for a great app! Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing more great recipes from various sources as you add them. I have mostly been using Howell Kalita 185 which makes a great cup. Also Kalita Onyx and Sightglass Chemex. I love that the pro experts recipes are there and that you can adjust them as needed and save. They make it easier for home coffee geeks like me to improve technique and make a superb cup.

I was bummed when Kohi stopped working on my phone but after trying some others and landing on this I realize it’s better than Kohi and all the others. I love that it keeps track of all my brews and includes equipment like the Ode Brew Grinder so I can add those setting. Love taking notes on each brew as well.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for such a kind review! The Kalita is a great brewer and I’m happy to hear the app is helping you dial in some tasty brews. If you ever have any more ideas for the app (or any questions) feel free to get in touch—my contact info is in the app’s settings.

Happy brewing! ☕️

Great developer support and very useful app

The developer responded within 24 hours of an email asking his help setting up a custom grinder. I got his customization within minutes of my giving him the details. Fastest tech response I’ve ever received.

It’s easy to create custom brewing recipes, but there are enough stock ones that I’ll want to try.

We’ll worth the money for me.

Developer Response ,

I try to be speedy :) Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and have fun exploring the recipes!

Happy brewing!

Awesome app for coffee nerds

Fun app to track all the details associated w/ brews recipes (grind size, grinder used, coffee wt. etc.) and coffees (roaster, varietal, process, elevation etc.)

Makes sharing recipes with other coffee enthusiasts extremely easy.

Would love to see future updates that include the ability to snap pictures of coffee bags/containers as well as the ability to share brew recipes with all other users who are interested.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review! I’m thrilled to hear you’re having fun with the app :)

I think we’re on the same wavelength as far as future updates go, but I’d love to hear more details about what you want to see. Or if you’ve tried any great coffees lately—both would be👌. Shoot me a note.
