About this app

Coffee App for your Brews

Have you ever made a fantastic cup of your favorite coffee and forgot the exact brewing process?
Not anymore. Your personal coffee journal app is finally here!

iBrewCoffee lets you save specialty coffee beans, record all your brewing recipes, and export print-ready PDF so you can enjoy your coffee journal and share your brewing mastery with your friends.

Using the app is simple:
1) save a Product (bag of specialty coffee),
2) record your Brews, experiment, rate, compare,
3) export your Brews, print your journal, or share with friends!

When saving a Product, you can specify:
- what roastery is the coffee from,
- flavor profile,
- roast level and roast date,
- weight and price,
- cupping score, batch/lot number,
- name, website,
- attach photos,
- custom product info,
- coffee origin country and region,
- altitude, varietals, and processings,
- harvest date, decaf method,
- farm, wash station and producer,
- create blends and specify blend ratio for each coffee.

There are over 3 000 roasteries, 2 000 coffee regions, 300 varietals, 300 flavor profiles, and 20 processings to choose from - and you can add your own.

When saving a Brew, you can specify:
- brewing method,
- custom equipment - grinder, filter, scale, kettle etc.,
- grind setting,
- coffee amount,
- water amount,
- temperature,
- extraction time,
- final Brew weight,
- TDS,
- tasting profile - aroma, sweetness, acidity, bitterness and body,
- set overall rating of the Brew,
- custom notes.
Brew ratio and extraction yield are calculated automatically!

There are 60 of the most popular brewing methods in the app - from Aeropress all the way to Woodneck.
And you can crate your own Brewing methods!

Custom Brewing Equipment
You can save and manage your brewing equipment:
- grinders - manual, automatic,
- espresso machines - lever, automatic,
- portafilter handles - single, double, triple, naked handle,
- filters - various types and materials,
- scales,
- kettles - basic, gooseneck,
- and other custom equipment.

PDF Export
Using the app, you can export your Products and Brews to PDF, print it out, and enjoy your coffee journal.
You can export a Product with its Brews, a single Brew with its Product, or empty templates for filling out manually during a tasting or cupping.
You can use multiple layouts, such as a single page, 2 per page, or 4 per page. That way, you can have your Brews in A4 or A5 (2 pages per A4) format.

Excel and CSV Exports
Using the app, you can export your Brews and Products to Excel or CSV for your additional processing (charts, etc.).
You can export Brews from a single Product, all Brews or Brews created only in specified time range.

Smart search
Searching through your Brews and Product is super easy and intuitive. You can search using most of the information you saved, such as a roastery, flavor profile, brewing method, coffee country, region, varietals, and more!

You can share your Brews with your friends or on your favorite social networks. Every Brew has a square share image format that you can easily upload to your social media channel.

Subscribing for iBrewCoffee Premium unlocks automatic cloud backup and device sync, so you don't have to worry about losing your Brews.

I understand paywalling sync but basic features such as >15 products, >3 local pictures, and >15 PDF data export for $4.99 a month, $34.99 annually, or $134.99 lifetime is outrageous. Unlimited local data entry should be free or a reasonable one time purchase price as there is no overhead outside of development costs. Furthermore, there should be local data import/export in standard formats such as csv or md. This is all hidden before registration. Good design, horrible monitization. Hard pass.

New redesigned and updated Premium with single offline features, including new prices, has been released since version 1.2.0. Would you please consider checking the app and updating your review? I really hope this version will be more to your liking 🙂 Happy Brewing!

Very good app. Lots of options although not fully customizable. Unfortunately it's linked to only one device so when you switch phones you loose your whole archive, unless you pay a subscription. It doesn't make sense to me just for the new device every two or three years, so I won't keep using it, but other than that it's really good.
