I know we’ve talked about this before, but this came to mind, so I thought I might share.
My favorite coffee timer is the bloom app on my phone. I’m pretty sure the company is defunct as of 2013, but in their prime, they were wonderful.
You could record your bean and water weight, grind settings, and compound timers for pour, steep, stir, and so on.
The best feature by far, was the ability to share those recipes with others via a link. People could tweet out their settings with #params @bloomapp (you should check out the old tweets) with whatever description and share it with the community. I loved it! I could walk into my local shop and pick coffee based on already tested recipes and know I’d get the best results. I take my coffee home, click the link and I have the specs.
I’m aware we’ve mentioned similar software hopper ideas before, but I wanted to share something we might be able to borrow from. An idea ahead of its time.
