I have some exciting news in the world of coffee!
Recently, a new iPhone app was released called Bloom, which aids manual coffee brewing. It is essentially a glorified timer that is customizable.
The opening screen looks like this:
It comes with basic specs for the most common manual coffee brewers: Beehouse, Chemex, Clever, French Press, Siphon and V60. So when you click on one of the brewers, it gives you how much coffee and water to use and how much time to let the water be with the coffee.
It even dings when your coffee is done brewing!
What sets Bloom apart from other coffee brewing apps is that it is customizable. You can change the basic settings to whatever you like. You can also add extra settings. So maybe you like to use 24 grams of coffee with your favorite coffee from El Salvador, but for your Sumatra coffee you like 25 grams.
It is all up to YOU!
I love this new app because it satisfies the needs of a coffee explorer, who does not know what do yet with their new coffee toys, and the needs of a coffee scientist, who likes to experiment various ways to make coffee. AND you can store any notes you want to remind the you that is not fully awake because you have not had your coffee yet.
I also love this app because Jeremy Boles, a Coffee Ethic regular and spouse of a Coffee Ethic employee, designed it. Yeah, for awesome Springfield people making stuff happen!
If you want to download the app, check it out in the iTunes store, and if this sounds like a foreign language, feel free to shoot me any questions! :)
