Weighing water?? The brewing directions r QUITE tedious. Ex: it assumes the whole sequence is performed with an Aeropress sitting on a digital scale. You are directed to dose the unit twice with water, measured IN GRAMS! Once you get a feel for how strong you like your coffee, you won't want to pull out your freaking scale every morning -- seriously! But now, you have to find a way to convert a weighed quantity of water to an accurate volume of water, measured in liquid oz, not weighed oz. That's a subtle challenge.
Love the quick conversions! However I am running into an issue with the water conversion from grams/cups to fluid ounces. The number displayed is correct for grams and cups but incorrect for fluid oz. Other than that the app is great! If there were a coffee cup log with a notes section for bean type/grind setting/taste for each cup that you made it would be really cool!
Where is the trivial information coming from? I.e. sources Under the espresso tab, it says that a single shot requires 18g of ground coffee, while most other sources on the web (simple Google search) would say that 18g makes a double shot. Fantastic app though, I will be using this to improve my personal coffee experience!
Nice app - thanks! I've had this app forever but I like this newer, more expanded version better - currently enjoying a 'proper' cup of coffee from my French press. Never knew I needed to put more grounds in and measure the temperature and volume of the water. The timer is handy too! What would be really nice is a section on different milk types and how to get perfect foam.... Then it would be 5 stars for sure! :D
Useful for beginners This app is very useful for beginners, though I'm preparing coffee for years now I think I got a bit diehard for these trends. However there's one thing though, I think the coffee to water ratio yields way too concentrated drink for my palate, so I have to adjust the measurements to suit me.
Very detailed and informative explanations of coffee and espresso drinks the way informed and enthused consumers and producers would have them made. For instance, the ratio for a Cappuccino is equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and foam. However Starbucks would have you drink 10% espresso, 45% milk and 45% foam--a subtle difference! My favorite is the exact instructions down to the gram and ounce for brewing French Press coffee--and any other method, for that matter. It's fun to bring beans home from fancy pretentious places and brew a cup just right for myself. I'd give it 5 stars except some of the grammar and syntax seems a bit wonky and the fit and finish isn't perfect.
