San Francisco’s Best Coffee App
Posted on January 8, 2011 by Mike
Design-wise this is a very nice app. I appreciate the geo-location features, and the listing of factual-based information such as roaster, grinder, espresso machine (though these things have a tendency to change).
What I don’t enjoy is reading reviews or seeing ratings left by people that I don’t know. That information has very little value for me. What I’d love to see instead is the ability to find and follow people that I DO know from within the service, and see only the ratings and reviews that they have left. Otherwise it feels a bit like a coffee specific version of Yelp (a service I’m not particularly fond of).
Overall I think this is a great idea, done very well if not perfectly. There’s also a London version available, and a New York version coming soon.
