For Coffee, Espresso, Cupping and Equipment Design

• Simple 2-Step Design Process
Select the point on the Chart and the amount of Beverage, Brew Water or Coffee Dose. VST CoffeeTools™ does everything else.

• Drag-and-Drop coffee recipe design works in all modes. All recipe values are automatically calculated and displayed for any brewing recipe protocol. Full conversions provided, including between brewing methods.

• Works with all types of brewing methods including: drip and auto-drip; infusion and full-immersion, cupping and espresso methods.

• Fully functional with or without a coffee refractometer. Refractometer measurements may be plotted separately using measured total dissolved solids (% TDS) and Beverage amounts to chart and compare actual brew results to design target values. All design and measurement data can be saved, shared, eMailed and uploaded to CoffeeMetrix, a public service that displays accumulated data in 2D and 3D formats for qualitative comparisons.

• Conversions for volume and weight measurements and U.S. Standard (English) to Metric units are supported in any combination. Design recipes for Drip can be directly converted to/from Infusion/Immersion methods, while maintaining identical extraction and strength relationships.

•Extraction Yield normalization is automatically provided on the VST Universal Brewing Control Chart for all brew methods: Drip, Infusion, Espresso, Cupping; brew water temperature (volume measurements); liquid retained in spent grounds; CO2 & Moisture content of the ground coffee. Water density is computed from volume measurements as a function of temperature, ensuring accurate measurements and results across different brewing methods. Defaults are provided for all preferences, and may be customized separately for all modes as required.

• A wide array of Presets are provided in all modes of operation that are typical of those found in home and commercial service. Each mode provides a full set of custom Presets that are user defined.

• Full recipe details database maintained separately for Coffee, Espresso and Cupping. Sorting by Date, Name and Taste Score provided.

• The VST Universal Brewing Control Chart supports direct touch-screen data input, pan and zoom functions, auto-scrolling of chart with ordinate and abscissa axis and reset functions.

Design points for % TDS and % EXT are step-less with snap-to-grid increments provided (TDS @ 0.05% and EXT at 0.1% increments).

Region of Interest (ROI) overlays are optionally provided for SCAA, SCAE, NCA regions with taste defect labels. Custom User defined ROI is also included.

• Complete calculations are displayed for: Dose, Brew Water, Beverage, Liquid Retained Ratio, Spent Grounds Weight, Coffee or Espresso Brew Ratio, Extraction Yield in both Design and Measured values.

• Compatible with VST CoffeeTools™ for iPhone & iPod Touch, VST CoffeeTools™ for OSX and VST CoffeeTools™ for Windows.

The app enables easily designing brews, saving, and sharing detailed recipes. The current features of the iPhone/iPod app are greatly expanded.

The portability of the iPad makes this software tool completely accessible and convenient anywhere I make coffee.

The app is intuitive and very user friendly.

With my standard refractometer, this app is an invaluable tool for dialing in any coffee, grinder, or brewing method.

This is an excellent value. I am extremely satisfied and would definitely buy this app again.
