The best coffee recipe app + espresso shot log / coffee log. Keep track of your beans & brews.

Bean Beast helps you create amazing coffee by allowing you to keep track of the recipes, ratings, and beans you like best.

Compatible with all coffee brew methods: espresso, pour-over, aeropress, french press, and more.

App Features:

- Recipes -- Add your favorite coffee recipes and keep track of all the brew parameters. (Grind, dose, temperature, etc)

- Equipment -- Have multiple grinders or espresso machines? No problem; you can specify which one you used for each recipe.

- Beans & Roasters -- Add your various beans and roasters to keep everything nice and organized, and see recipes for a specific bean.

- Bean Ratings -- Do you ever struggle to remember exactly what you thought of a specific bean that you *know* you've had before? Fret not; you can just look at your previous rating for it :)

Bean Beast is under active development and I'm working to polish and add more features. To see my development roadmap, you can visit

Does everything

I was writing this information into field notes by hand and that’s so 1995. This app literally had an EASY way to record every single metric that I require to replicate a shot. Honestly - you’ve outdone yourself. I’d love to leave you a tip or something. This app is intuitive and has a spot to input all of the pertinent data for successful coffee activities. Truly, I want to thank you for your work in creating this. PLEASE KEEP IT UP TO DATE with future iOS versions. I’d hate to see this bug out.

Best Coffee Bean/Recipe Tracking App

The title said it. If you are looking for an app to keep track of your coffee recipes for different beans look no further. I’ve tried a few other apps and this is definitely the best. It is exactly what I was looking for. It has just the right amount of technical fields you can fill in while being pretty simple.

The only thing I wish the app had was a way to backup/export the data for safe keeping.

Fantastic except for one bug

This app is fantastic in every way! The best of all coffee recipe apps, perfect for espresso. Every option you could possibly want, from dose and grind size to pre-infusion and extraction time.

Only one annoying issue: every couple weeks, the app loses every single picture that I saved for each bean, so they all end up with just my text titles and descriptions and no photo of the bag. I’ve added all my photos back twice and twice more they have disappeared.

Other than that, fantastic app!
