Apps For Coffee Lovers
You love coffee. You love to drink it. You're a connoisseur, you buy the best, you brew the best. You want to know more about your coffee, the history of coffee, the subtleties, how to brew it and create your favorite coffee beverages. You think about coffee even when you're not drinking it. If this sounds familiar, then this is the AppList for you.
After experimenting with having two separate apps, Starbucks finally unified them into a single, must-have app. This one allows you to manage your Starbucks card, pay for your purchases, track your rewards, find a store, see a menu, buy a gift, apply for a job, and more! If you're a Starbucks fan, you need to have this app. In theory you can go ahead and dump those other two; this one replaces them entirely. However, be aware that some users are complaining that their information from the mobile card app was lost in the switch, so be sure you've backed everything up first.
If you’re buying coffee for a crowd, this app will help you get everyone’s orders right. The lingo seems to be pretty Starbucks-y, though this is not officially a Starbucks app. Still, regardless of which coffee shop you’re headed to, if you’re the one making the coffee run, pick up this app to keep you organized and paperless.
Splick-it Food Ordering
You can actually bypass the lines at your favorite coffee shop (or restaurant, as this app is not exclusively for coffee) and place your order right from this app. You can store your credit card information in the app so that you can pay before you even set foot in the shop. When you get there, you can just grab your order and go. Obviously not every coffee shop is included, but they are always adding more partners to their database.

Barista and Spro give you lots of options for espresso-based drinks. But some of us just enjoy plain old coffee and would like to learn about the best ways to brew it. This complete guide to brewing coffee has you covered. Yes, there are instructions for espresso and espresso-based drinks, but you will also learn how to make coffee via the following methods: vacuum brewers, percolators, electric drips, pourover makers, french press, and for espresso without the expensive machine: the moka pot.

With coffee lingo throughout, this app is sure to charm coffee lovers and photography lovers alike.
