The Brew Coffee app is a tool that helps coffee lovers consistently brew a perfect cup of pour over coffee. Made specifically for Hario or Chemex brewing, the app helps you time the pour of your brew based off of the weight of coffee you’re brewing to the weight of the water you need to add. Users follow a timer that guides them through the three phases of the brew: bloom, pour, and drain. Once the brew is finished, add tasting notes and refine your timer to get the best and most consistent results.

UX & Visual Design
Select which beans you’re going use out of a collection of your favorites. Brew settings are saved for each type of bean, because characterisics like roast level, origin, and acidity affect brew time for optimum taste.
Select your brew method, and the amount of coffee. The final water amount and servings will be automatically adjusted. Once finished grinding the coffee and heating up the water place the Chemex or Hario brewer on a scale and zero it. Tap start to begin the brewing process.

The main stage of the brew is the pour stage. Try to match the target weight as you add water.

Let the rest of the water drain out of the grinds.

Let the app know when you pull the filter so it can recommend adjustments to your brew time. Too long of a brew time will result in bitter coffee, too short will be acidic, and just right will taste sweet.
