Catador replicates the industry standard SCAA coffee cupping scoresheet with an easy-to-use system of sliders to rate sensory criteria and tick boxes to mark off-cups in the categories of Uniformity, Clean Cup and Sweetness.
Touching the Notes line launches a virtual keyboard so that you can record your comments and total scores are tallied immediately and accurately on the right hand side in the Total Score box. So simple, and yet it works perfectly.
Catador goes further to include administrative features that make it even more useful in the field.
From the Home screen, you can add and delete cupping flights, identifying the number of samples in each group, which are given generic alphabetic labels or numbers that can be given unique names. (Both Arabica and Robusta are available)
After the day’s cupping is done (or when asked to turn in your Q Grader cupping evaluation), users can also permanently lock each flight so that it cannot be changed later. The system gives you a popup warning that the operation cannot be undone.
No cupping scoresheet application can be fully functional in the real world unless you have some way to export the data. Catador presently includes an email function that sends scores as a text document to any email address, as well as a .CSV file which may be imported into other applications or a worksheet.
There is also an Airprint option, where you may print the output to any Airprint enabled printer wirelessly.
On the latest version, you may also share your sessions using the Airdrop feature on all supported iOS devices.

Ratings and Reviews
Not working on my iPhone.
It works fine on my iPad, but I can get it to start a session on my iPhone. I hope they fix it soon. When you do, 2 more stars for you. I will also being looking forward to future updates that bring added functionality. The form looks and works great. Though this app really needs more features to be a real App Store winner. I think they can get it there.
Developer Response ,
This is a review from the 2012 version. Have you tried the latest version?
Great app for us coffee nerds
Have been using this app for four years, and have enjoyed its simplicity and standardization. Now have a huge cupping library on the app, certainly worth the price and I’m glad it doesn’t require some kind of subscription.
Version 3.2.0 is very much improved
Great amount of export options for forms: PDF,CSV,HTML and native catador format.
Notes section is a tremendous improvement. Input is a lot easier. Spider graphs export is a lot smother.
Overall, a great upgrade.
