If you’re an avid coffee drinker, you’ve probably already found a few coffee apps. The Starbucks app, for example, will help you find the nearest Starbucks location, tell you all about the various drinks offered, and provide you with other information about the company. But, there are coffee apps that aren’t related to the bean roasting giant.
Apps that will help your day go by a bit faster (maybe from all that extra caffeine?). So, grab your iPhone, and get ready to chase down the best coffee that your town has to offer with these ingenious applications. Of course, some of these apps may have changed since the time of this writing, but we hope not!
Coffee Buzz -- $3.99
Alright, $3.99 is a lot to pay for an app. Then again, it depends on what the app can help you accomplish. For nearly $4, you will get an app that lets you find the nearest coffee shop. Any coffee shop – regardless of the name or the brand, but that’s not all. Coffee Buzz will also help you locate any of your pals who happen to be at a nearby coffee shop.
Further, you can link Coffee Buzz to your Twitter account, so that everyone you know will see that you’re “having a coffee.” Is the Twitter portion of this app necessary? Maybe not, but the app itself is a lot of fun (and very useful!).
Barista -- $2.99
Have you ever wanted to make sweet and syrupy drinks at home? Well, now’s your chance. Barista is an app that teaches you how to become (you guessed it!) a barista. Using your home espresso machine, you can make all the best coffee concoctions. This app lists all ingredients and recipes in easy to follow steps. You will still have to buy the caramel syrup and beans, but you can make any coffee you want from the comfort of your own home.
Coffee Talk -- $0.99
A skinny what? If you find yourself confused by coffee lingo, you’ll love this app. What’s more, you’ll be able to walk into any coffee shop and order a Cup ‘O Joe like a pro. Find out what all of those coffee terms mean by using the Coffee Talk thesaurus. You’ll also find out what all of those coffee drinks have inside of them (just in case you are tempted to order off-menu!).
Coffee Quotes and Sayings – Free
That’s right, this app is free! While it won’t help you find a nearby coffee shop or make a coffee at home, this app will provide you with a long list of popular coffee sayings. Purely for fun, Coffee Quotes and Sayings can provide you with a laugh. Or, perhaps, an interesting phrase to send out to your Twitter followers.
CoffeeAround -- $.99
Strikingly similar to Coffee Buzz, CoffeeAround was added to this list due to the price of the app. Instead of paying nearly $4 to find the coffee house nearest you, CoffeeAround can be yours for around one dollar (less than the price of a cup of coffee!). Find the closest coffee house near you with this app.
