This update fixes an issue with annotating coffee after the timer has finished. And for business accounts, we have added a new section in the Settings to let you preview your draft products and brand page.
What's new in Filtru 2.0:
When you make coffee every day at some point that bag of delicious, fresh coffee beans gets empty. Filtru has recognised this as an opportunity to let you try something new.
With Filtru's refreshed Discover tab you are able to browse, search and purchase fresh coffee beans delivered to you directly from our partnered coffee roasters. The Discover tab will now begin to include a list of products and categories to choose from. You can search for coffee by nearly every aspect of it's genetics:
- Processing Method (i.e. Washed, Natural, Honey Processed)
- Varietal (i.e. Geisha, Bourbon, Caturra)
- Region (Ethiopia, Kenya, El Salvador)
We're hoping this will enable you to try different coffee beans, compare and develop a palate for a more specific beverage.
New coffee roasters are added every week, shipping to more and more countries, make sure you keep an eye on the products.
As part of our celebration of the launch of the new Filtru Shop, we are selling t-shirts featuring your favourite brew methods from Filtru, be sure to check these out!
Ratings and Reviews
So great all I want is more!
This app is wonderful and I use it daily to make wonderful coffee!
That said, I’d like to see more brewing options added and it doesn’t seem possible to view or import other people’s guides, despite the ability to share them?
Keep up the great work, and I hope to watch this app grow and expand its wonderful footprint!
More method options
I love the design and the performance of this app; both are top notch! To me, the only thing that keeps it from scoring five stars is that I wish that it had a little bit more options for brewing methods. I just invested a lot of money buying equipment from Fellow, the company that makes such excellent coffee equipment like, the Stagg Pour Over system, or their Duo Brewing system. They’re very unique to their designs and no other device out there looks like them. It’d be very nice to see them as an addition to this already excellent app.
It’s free, with some tweaks I would gladly pay money for it
Some issues I see with this app are:
- When selecting a brew method and inputting grams of coffee it doesn’t scale the selected ratio.
For instance I may choose 22 or 24 g of coffee and it won’t change the water in g.
Also it defaults to insane brew ratios like 1:10 or 1:12 (I want to make coffee not motor oil). Which wouldn’t be a big deal, but it doesn’t save your ratio from the time before. I tried making custom brew methods, but alas the brew ratio doesn’t scale.
- When you finish brewing it changes the amounts used, so the pretty graph at the end is meaningless because it wasn’t the amount used during brewing. I find I have to manually input those details.
- Compatible Bluetooth scales are sort of esoteric. No Acacia compatibly?
Otherwise, it has potential to be the best.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
