About this app

Bean Beast helps you create amazing coffee by allowing you to keep track of the recipes, ratings, and beans you like best.

Compatible with all coffee brew methods: espresso, pour-over, aeropress, french press, and more.

App Features:

- Recipes -- Add your favorite coffee recipes and keep track of all the brew parameters. (Grind, dose, temperature, etc)

- Equipment -- Have multiple grinders or espresso machines? No problem; you can specify which one you used for each recipe.

- Beans & Roasters -- Add your various beans and roasters to keep everything nice and organized, and see recipes for a specific bean.

- Bean Ratings -- Do you ever struggle to remember exactly what you thought of a specific bean that you *know* you've had before? Fret not; you can just look at your previous rating for it :)

Bean Beast is under active development and I'm working to polish and add more features. To see my development roadmap, you can visit

Very clean and visually appealing design. Strikes a good balance on amount of inputable parameters without being overly encumbering. Few improvements could be made such as making text visible while keyboard is typing and adding a dark screen mode. One suggestion, maybe add an infusion method that would encompass the French press and the Aeropress (or not?). All in all, a very nice app and no ads at that!

Hi Hao, thanks for the review. I agree that the keyboard bug is annoying – it's on my list. :) With regards to your suggestion, how do you envision that working? I was considering nesting them both under "percolator" but decided in the end that a lot of people (especially the sorts of people using french press) might not know the term.

Great app, simple, easy to use. Would like some more fields. Currently I record grinder time (easier than dose, once dialed in for a bean), extraction time and pressure and which portafilter (single/double baster and naked/normal) in the notes, would be best in own fields. Hesitating to use it extensively without being able to export data and share with mates, put it onto another phone or read with something like Excel. Don't want to loose all my hard work recording my favorite coffees Will give it 5 Start when it has these features (especially the export) .

Handy app to keep track of previous coffee orders and brew recipes. I'd give it 5 stars but having just changed my phone there is seemingly no way to move the data so 6 months of content is on the brink of being lost. Import/export option doesn't seem to create a file anywhere on the Android file system.

The files are definitely saved to the filesystem. I was trying to poke around on my phone just now to find out where and couldn't easily, but if I add some debug to the code on my end I can find out where. Shoot me an email to and I can help you find the file and move it to your new phone.

What's new

- Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause recipes to not be properly save-able
- Fixed a camera / camera roll bug for bean image uploading
- Added manual yield designation to the top of recipes
- Recipes now display their calculated brew ratio
