Ratings and Reviews
Love the app, but want 1 change! APPLE WATCH VERSION IS TERRIBLE.
This app is great and will change your life when it comes to an Aeropress. I feel like I'm walking behind the bar at a coffee shop and picking something off the menu and making it myself. Used the metric measurements for a while, but it's a little complicated. Go with simple.
Finally, one change I would like, a personal RATING system for the different types of brews. There are so many I can't keep track of which ones I like and don't like. If I could just get a simple 1-5 star report for MYSELF on the various brews that would be AWESOME.
Update: Got an Apple Watch and was excited to use this app with it, but it is TERRIBLE. A) it has NO vibrations/dings to let you know when to change actions. B) if you stop looking at your watch the screen goes black and then when you look again the timer gets all screwy and then you have no idea where you're at in the brew or what our supposed to be doing or how much you're supposed to pour. The iPhone app is great, but if I could rate the Apple Watch app I'd give it zero stars because it's not even worthy to be called an app.
Kind of like a recipe book (and brewing coach) for your AeroPress
I just picked up an AeroPress for the first time, and I have to say that I was quite skeptical about how good it would really be. I had similar questions about this app. Turns out the AeroPress is a fantastic single-cup coffee brewer, and this app is a great companion to make sure you are using it properly.
Let me just say that while I LOVE the AeroPress, I'm still a bit of a skeptic that the different brewing techniques make that much of a discernible difference. Can you taste the difference between steeping for 20 seconds and stirring versus a 60 second soak on a coarser grind? Maybe, maybe not, but it's fun to try. More importantly, the app and its series of instructions and timers are sort of like a flight manual making sure that you incorporate all the necessary steps, and don't do anything that will completely throw off the brewing process.
There's probably a few dozen recipes here, and some useful instructions on traditional vs. inverted method, grinding techniques, and water temperature. As others have noted, it would be nice to have even a 5 star rating system so I could remind myself (or see other users' opinions) of how much I liked or disliked a particular method. But it's a neat little app and it's a convenient tool to always have with you, particularly since AeroPress is so useful on-the-go.
Recipes Are Inaccurate
This app is a GREAT idea. The way it’s laid out is great. The functionality is great. There are three main problems. Firstly, I have discovered that MANY of the recipes are not recorded correctly. In clicking the links to the source for the recipe, the grams of coffee are often wrong, the grind size can be wrong, and other details as well. The recipe link is right in the app. These are easily verifiable mistakes. Secondly, it would be nice to have the option to edit existing recipes. Taking for granted that the recipes are correct, it would be nice to be able to make changes. Finally, it would be lovely to have a little more flexibility on the options you can include for making your own recipe. For instance, I have a recipe I like from the 2017 World AeroPress Competition winner, and she adds water to the coffee after it has been plunged and brewed. There’s no way for me to add that in the app. Maybe include a function where you can type in your own instruction instead of having to rely solely on the instruction items provided in the app. I want to love this app so badly. But inaccurate recipes? I actually can’t use this app now. I have to find the original recipes to get the correct data. Accurate, verified recipes, and a little more flexibility/customization would make this PERFECT.
