Coffee Quest app screen capAre you one of those people who has trouble making decisions before your first cup of coffee? Now there's a new Android coffee app that can help you make that all-important first decision of the day -- what kind of coffee should you order?

The app, Coffee Quest, is a new addition to the Google Play store. Developed by QA Graphics, a company that develops mobile apps for the food service industry, it's free to download and use. Since I don't happen to own an Android device, I couldn't run through it to do a review, but it's described as "quirky" and "fun". Apparently, the app leads you through a series of questions about how you like your coffee, including how much caffeine you want, whether you want milk in it and if you want it hot or cold. Based on your responses, it then suggests a coffee drink you might like. 

Now, this isn't a problem I'm likely to have. I'm usually pretty sure exactly how I want my coffee, but it might be fun for those times when I want to try something different but I'm not sure quite what I want. It might also help those who aren't really sure exactly wha's in differnt types of coffee drinks. I do see one little problem with the idea of a coffee decision making app like this though...

...it expects me to make five or six decisions in order to give me a final decision!

The Coffee Quest app is a nice, creative change from the usual coffee app, though. Of the top ten coffee apps reviewed by various app websites, most are either mixing guides, coffee shop locators or Starbucks card managers. This little Android app at least has a somewhat creative premise.

Do you have any coffee apps on your devices? If you were going to develop a coffee app, what would it do? What do you think of a ROASTe coffee suggestion app?

That is an interesting little application but usually I know exactly what drink I want to make. I can understand sometime it is overwhelming with all the choices when one goes into a starbuck.

Geez, how many choices are there, really? I have a feeling that a person who can't even decide what they want to drink will have trouble deciding to download this app. ;)

Free makes just about anything appealing. I'd still think twice about tying up my hd space with something I'd find pretty useless, though I might download it just to check it out.

I think I've been inside a Starbucks exactly once, but I've seen their menu -- and I know my daughter's standard order. I don't usually have trouble deciding how I want my coffee brewed and served. Now, if there was an app that recommended different coffees and roasters -- that I'd download in a heartbeat.

I know, right? The specs for this say that it leads you through six questions and then tells you what to order, and my first thought was -- you have to make six different decisions? Yeesh, way to amplify the problem!

Hahaha, this app is probably for fun and I really don't expect it to decide what I am gonna drink. Why not have both if you're in a dilemma ;P I had a caffeine calculator app the other day, didn't work so well though.

I've seen a couple of caffeine calculator apps -- there was one I wrote about a few weeks ago that told you whether you should have that coffee now or choose a decaf. Like most, it seemed like it might be fun to play around with, but when you consider how much caffeine levels can vary based on so many different variables, it seems pretty useless in a practical sense.

If I owned a smartphone, Android or iPhone, I'd be such a sucker for silly apps that don't do much of anything useful. I just have a thing for playing with programs and checking out what other people are doing with code. For me, CODE + COFFEE = POETRY.

See? That's what I'm saying. If I'm in no state to decide whether I'd rather have a macchiato or cappuccino, I'm sure as heck in no shape to make half a dozen smaller decisions just to get to my coffee!

In the morning before

In the morning before coffee, I'm too lazy to do anything let alone answer questions on my phone so I don't think this app is for me:)

While I don't entirely see

While I don't entirely see it being useful to me it might be neat to play around with. There are a lot of options out there after all!

Oh I will have to try this one out at some point since it's free, sounds more like something to merely play around with tho.
