5 Amazing IOS Apps For Coffee Connoisseurs

One of the main reasons why the iPhone and iPad are so popular is the large number of apps available for iOS devices. The slogan “there is an app for that” is very fitting since there truly is an app for almost anything you can think of. It is not surprising then that coffee connoisseurs have a plethora of apps to choose from the iTunes store. Here are 5 of the most amazing apps that for coffee lovers.

Instant Barista

Instant barista is an app that truly lives up to its name. With a few taps on the screen, the app will instantly help you become a barista with access to over 70 different recipes. Besides helping you make coffee drinks like a professional, the app also dedicates a section to latte art and a brew timer for steeping different kinds of tea.

Coffee Order

Do you dread the days when you have to make the coffee run and can’t remember who ordered what? Then the Coffee Order app definitely deserves a spot in your iPhone. No matter where you go, a chain coffee-shop or an indie one, the app has a range of options to choose from so that you never forget anything in an order. Get your boss’s ‘Grande double extra dry skinny no whip vanilla latte’ prefect every time.


For those who prefer indie coffee shops to the corporate chains, the Beanhunter app is invaluable. Most corporate coffee chains have their own apps with in-built store locators. Beanhunter lets you find independent coffee shops in your area and check out user ratings and reviews. With a list that boasts over 8000 coffee shops from across the world, Beanhunter is a massive hit for coffee connoisseurs who also love to travel.

Coffee Scales

With temptation everywhere, it can be quite difficult to control your calorie intake. Being health-conscious is not an easy thing; no matter how hard you try, it seems impossible to keep a track of every calorie. This is especially true for those who love to drink coffee. Unless you are drinking good ol’ fashioned black coffee, your cuppa is more likely to resemble a cup filled with dessert. Coffee scales lets you see exactly how many calories are in that drink of yours. Simple input your order and the app will calculate how many calories the drink has and how much caffeine you will be getting from it.


CoffeeGuru is undoubtedly the best app out there for hardcore coffee lovers. Although its list of coffee shops is not as extensive as Beanhunter, CoffeeGuru does focus more on coffee shops that serve fair trade coffee. The best feature of the app though has to be the ‘Flavor Wheel’. With a wide range of tastes and aromas to choose from, the Flavor Wheel provides you with a great set of adjectives to describe your coffee. In addition to the coffee-shop locator and flavor wheel, the app also features a mini coffee brewing guide.
