[A] new coffee app currently is designed to help consumers taste coffee like the pros do. Basically an app for note-taking, Angels’ Cup breaks down a coffee’s attributes into categories, allowing the user to input a coffee, choose a roast profile, grab some descriptors off a flavor wheel, record mouthfeel on a graph, and rate overall enjoyment. That information is stored and catalogued, ready for sharing with other coffee enthusiasts or simply to refer to in one’s quest for excellent brews.

The app is paired with the Angels’ Cup subscription service, which sends out coffees from roasters like Blue Bottle and Stumptown. Once enough data is input into the app, samples of beans will be mailed and recommendations sent based on the user’s notes and ratings. The app essentially learns the user’s palate, while the user progresses further in defining her tastes.
