Barista - Coffee Timer App Description

Barista is a coffee application that teaches you popular espresso drinks and brewing methods. Each brewing method guide includes step by step instructions. There are a couple things that are important when brewing coffee: 1. Ratio - keep track of your coffee to water ratio. Barista includes a ratio calculation so you can scale out your measurements. 2. Timing - keep track of when to pour more water during your brew. It's important to give your coffee grinds time to bloom. Barista includes a timer to help manage this. 3. Customization - included are reasonable defaults for popular brewing methods. Barista allows you to customize the overall brew time and change the water doses for each step. 4. Learn - if you are curious and want to try other brewing methods, you can learn how to use them!

Barista - Coffee Timer App Reviews

  • Revised Review

    By Roanman275
    Actually, once I figured out how to use the app, I found it very useful. I think a brief tutorial or some basic instructions on how to use the app would be helpful.
  • Great App But UX Needs Work

    By bashveank
    The functionality of this app is great and I love the idea of the notes/history section. But altering recipes takes way too long. I would like to be able to just enter weights directly instead of holding down on the plus/minus buttons for 30 seconds. Also, it would be nice if the water amounts in each step automatically updated depending on how much total water was in the recipe.
  • Lots of potential

    By Haired hjs
    Lots of potential but pretty buggy. When editing recipes “cancel” actually saves rather then going back. You can’t change the order of steps. Also steps will randomly change order or a new step will be inserted at the end. There’s finicky sliders to select small numbers when you should just be able to type in a number. You can’t create original recipes with methods that aren’t listed in the app. And lastly the bar that fills up to show you how much time is left in the step is too small.
  • Good, no frills app. Lots of methods/equipment as options in-app

    By TheNip73
    This app is decent as an aid for tracking your brews and trying to dial things into to the optimal settings. I noticed that a few of my brews in the history save funky coffee and water weights that are not the same as my saved brew recipes, but it doesn’t bother me. One super nice addition would be support for Bluetooth scales to measure out actual pour weights directly into the app and/or provide signals to speed up or slow down pours.
  • Decent

    By what is one
    I like this app. It has a good description of the brewing process and why for almost every method. I like that the ratio settings can be changed based on the quantity of coffee or water. Do note, however, that these adjustments don’t update the steeping timers weight amounts per phase - this has to be done manually. There is also no way to keep track/rate different beans/roasts. Another small gripe I have is that the Breville bur grinder is not selectable to use for suggested settings. Having multiple settings per brewing method also becomes cumbersome to manage.
  • Excellent!

    Barista has changed my coffee drinking for the better! It’s excellent and intuitive.
  • Love the app, still can’t run timers in background

    By Davemacdo
    I love this app and use it every day to brew coffee. It has helped me become more confident in new brewing methods. The look of the app is very cool and stylish. It’s very easy to use. My only complaint is that after months of using it, it’s still not possible to let timers run in the background. If you accidentally tap a notification, swipe up on iPhone X, or even just invoke Siri, your timer stops and quits with no way to resume. I understand this is a tricky problem, but the dev has had a long time to solve it and has chosen to focus on much less impactful changes.
  • Great

    I love it
  • Comprehensive, customizable, thoughtfully designed.

    By Soobat
    Solid app with a tremendous amount of functionality. You can select a brew method (good coverage here: Kalita, Chemex, Bee House, Aeropress, etc.) and work from the default recipes (including a few championship-winning recipes) or tweak just about any brew parameter (comes with a ratio calculator!!) and save as your custom recipe (for example, to keep track of bean/roast specific brews.) The guides are helpful for both newbies and experienced users, and introduced me to methods I didn't know about.
  • The Home coffee brewer app

    By RealDeal
    I’ve used a couple of different apps for helping me brew the best possible coffee from my many different brewing methods. This app is the best. It has very good guides to help you brew the best possible coffee. The timer is very helpful, with sound notifications to let you know when to pour, how much water and what your overall weight should be at that time.
