Tired of leaving your tea too long, to become bitter and cold, or drinking it too soon and not appreciating its full potential? Then this utility is for you!

Cuppa is an application that lives in your Dock: just right-click or control-click on Cuppa’s icon and select the beverage you are brewing (the beverage list and times can be edited, and even expanded to time things other than tea!). When you choose a beverage, Cuppa will begin timing the brew for you, with a countdown timer that’s optionally displayed as a badge on the dock icon. When the tea is done Cuppa will attempt to get your attention by various configurable means.

good for more than just tea

I actually just needed a simple coundown timer app for my work that wouldn't take up screen space and that was easy to start and restart multiple presets. For example, I need to comlete task A in one minute and task B in 4 minutes so I wanted to quickly choose the correct timer for the task without needing to type or dial in the time each time. While there's no menu bar item, you can just right-click on the icon in the dock and choose the preset and the time is displayed on the icon. I tried out a lot of different timer apps to find one like this.

This application is Charming and Discrete.

This application possesses a charming tea cup icon with a numerical badge discretely indicating the remaining time. The sound effects, which may be toggled off, are minimal. The notification options include a bouncing icon, system notification, sound, or any variation thereof. All options are easily managed from the dock icon. No advertzements of any sort have been noticed from this application. This is clearly an astheeticly pleasing gift from the deveoper.

I offer my gratitude and appreciation for this delightful tea timer.
