Catador replicates the industry standard SCAA coffee cupping scoresheet with an easy-to-use system of sliders to rate sensory criteria and tick boxes to mark off-cups in the categories of Uniformity, Clean Cup and Sweetness.
Touching the Notes line launches a virtual keyboard so that you can record your comments and total scores are tallied immediately and accurately on the right hand side in the Total Score box. So simple, and yet it works perfectly.
Catador goes further to include administrative features that make it even more useful in the field.
From the Home screen, you can add and delete cupping flights, identifying the number of samples in each group, which are given generic alphabetic labels or numbers that can be given unique names. (Both Arabica and Robusta are available)
After the day’s cupping is done (or when asked to turn in your Q Grader cupping evaluation), users can also permanently lock each flight so that it cannot be changed later. The system gives you a popup warning that the operation cannot be undone.
No cupping scoresheet application can be fully functional in the real world unless you have some way to export the data. Catador presently includes an email function that sends scores as a text document to any email address, as well as a .CSV file which may be imported into other applications or a worksheet.
There is also an Airprint option, where you may print the output to any Airprint enabled printer wirelessly.
On the latest version, you may also share your sessions using the Airdrop feature on all supported iOS devices.
- New Spiderweb charts with export capability!

Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't work on iPhone 4s
App does not work past intro screen. Feels old and clumsily designed.
Best electronic cupping form on the market
Very intuitive! Exceptional way of tracking samples and scores! Great job!!
Excellent version of SCAA cupping score sheet
Captures all the relevant info, makes it easy to keep record. Anticipating upcoming release for spreadsheet import. Very handy and paperless! Thanks.
Used this on a recent Central American trip and found it invaluable for capturing and quickly sharing my cupping notes with labs and fellow cuppers.
I have a couple of requests based on this frequent use:
Make the default setting for Clean Cup, Sweetness and Uniformity "10" instead of having to change it for each sample.
When you launch a new evaluation, could the samples be default "unlocked" instead of "locked"
I discovered on this trip you could change the letters designating the sample to anything you choose to type, could the default be numbers (1, 2, 3...) instead of letters?
This last one is just a personal request, i don't use .25 points, is there a way to tune the sliders so that they move in .5 increments?
I have really enjoyed having this for traveling cupping, thanks for the great app!
