What is Mister Barista?
Mr Barista is your personal 'third wave' coffee brewing sidekick for the Aeropress, V60, Chemex, French Press and Moka pot. By perfecting your grind, water, and technique using Mister Barista; you can make the best coffee you've ever tasted at home. Coffee that's full of flavour and delicious rather than burnt, bitter or sour.
We provide recipes from all around the world and special recipes and techniques from the winners of the Aeropress championships too.
Check out and read our ratings, Mister Barista is designed and built to assist in the surprisingly complex world of making an excellent cup of coffee.
How Mister Barista works:
Choose a brewing method, Aeropress for example; select a recipe that appeals to you and view the details screen to see what size to grind the coffee beans, you can even place a small amount of your ground beans on your device's screen to make sure your grind size is correct. It will show you what temperature your water should be and amount of ground coffee to use too.
On the recipe screen, tap go as soon your kettle has finished reaching temperature and follow the instructions as they appear. The advanced timer will count down each stage, even dynamically calculating the time to let the water in your kettle cool before pouring on to your grinds. Mister Barista will guide you on when to pour, steep, stir, plunge as well as provide useful information for each step.
If you have a temperature controlled kettle like the Bonavita then there is an option to use it in the brewing process too.
If you settle on a favourite recipe for your daily brew, just tap the 'last coffee' button to jump straight to it in future.

Ratings and Reviews
The app is good at what it does but the pricing is misleading. Buying the app for 79p gives you just a single recipe for each of three methods and you can't create any of your own. To get additional recipes or save your own you have to pay a further 2.99 for the upgrade, so to make the app useful it's going to cost £3.78, which is a lot for a simple timer, however useful. Not being up front about this is misleading.
Developer Response ,
The app is free to download, and the upgrades allow the extra functionality, as per the description of the app.
