Description

"Life's too short to drink bad coffee" – someone, somewhere.
Coffee is a personal drink and we know a good cup when we find it. Sometimes recreating that perfect cup is hard – unless you record everything about it, ready for next time. Coffee Book helps you do that and much more.
With Coffee Book, you'll store all kinds of important information about your coffee but also how it came into being, too. The coffee you used, the brewing method, and even the equipment can change how a cup tastes. Coffee Book helps you log and track it all.
Need to tweak a cup? With Coffee Book, learning about your coffee tastes has never been easier. You'll log changes as you go, noting what they mean to you and your tastebuds. All of this information will be safe and sound in the cloud so you'll never have to start again!
Features include:
- Syncing with Apple Health – your caffeine intake will never be a mystery again.
- Support for all the best brewing methods including Aeropress, Chemex, Cold Brew, and more.
- A space for photos for those extra special cups.
- Ratings, so you can track how your brewing method, beans, and more affects the outcome.
- Privacy, because coffee doesn't need your data and neither do we.
- Fetch data about your brews and coffee within Shortcuts
- Lock screen widgets so the next brew is just a tap away.

- The plus screen has been updated to match the new art style.
- There's a new app icon somewhere in the app.
- When logging a brew, you can start a timer for your brew time.
- The shadows have been toned down a smidge so the app looks prettier.
- If you share a brew with a friend, they'll see it in a nice Shared with you shelf.
- You can now SharePlay via messages, not just calls.
- When adding a brew, you can tap a siri button to add a shortcut.
- Inside shortcuts you can now retrieve all the data for your Coffee's to use in your shortcuts.

The bug fixes:

Thank you for continuing to support Coffee Book.

Gotfart? ,

Very Comprehensive.

Allows for excellent data input to dial in each roast along with being able to add specific notes and photos. The categories are very complete and well thought out. It is very easy to navigate and syncs well with Acaia Lunar. I only wish there was a category to input grinder rpm settings since that typically will change the grind and shot time settings for espresso. Perhaps being able to graph flow control profiles would be a nice add on in the future as well. These two things are very minor and very picky considerations to an otherwise excellent app.

Very happy to give this 5 stars.

Developer Response ,

I’m so glad to hear you like the app!

More options are coming and I’ll add grinder RPM as an option. Flow control graphs should be out in a future update too for users with scales.

Thank you for the suggestions, if you have any more please email me and I’d love to get them in - picky is appreciated from coffee folks like yourself :)

Overall; Not Bad

TLDQR:
Provides good amount of details for repeating brews; however, it lacks customizability, and the abilty to create your own “Guides.”

Long story:
It has some pretty nice features that help you dial in as repeat your chemistry, I really like the guide feature however it would be “amazing” if I could either create or edit a guide of my own (maybe I just don’t know how to do it) for a better step by step UI. The other thing would be to add more options to move around the details of the recipe and additional options like [bean (g)] instead of just coffee, I grind only as much as I need so occasionally the grind eats some if I don’t smack her hard enough. Or maybe water pre-boil. Also the ability to turn off details, like RPM, my grinder is very basic, or for those with a hand grinder…

Like I said overall not bad.

B Interface ,

Good got documentation

I tried two different apps. This was very good for documentation. It would be nice if I had a Bluetooth scale, but it is not necessary. If I were going to add a future I would add some graphs or charts they compare the same brewers. But that is not essential. Overall it is straightforward and easy to understand I would get it again even if I had to pay for it. I think it’s worth at least a couple bucks. I recommend it. It won’t cost you anything to try it.
