Cute application that times your tea brewing.

Overview

Cuppa is a cute application to time your cup of tea as it steeps. Tired of leaving your tea too long, to become bitter and cold, or drinking it too soon and not appreciating its full potential? Then this utility is for you!

Use it right from the dock: just right-click or command-click on the little teacup, and select the beverage you wish to brew. You'll see a tea bag appear in the cup, and gradually darken as the tea steeps. When the tea is done the teacup will bounce and make a sound.

Features:

  • All functionality available from the Dock menu.
  • Customize the beverage list and steeping times.
  • Customize the brew complete notification.
  • Also great for timing French press coffee and 2-minute noodles!
  • Full Cocoa source code available.

Great app! I used to use KTeatime in linux, and Cuppa is the only app that does the same thing on the mac! The best app for quick countdowns! (you can define your own presets too!)

I can't remember how many years I've been using this nice timer (may be 10?), but it's been every morning! :-) My only regret is that it doesn't have an option to launch the countdown when I fire the app — as I always drink the same tea in the morning... :-D I've suggested the idea to the dev many years ago. May be someday... :-)

Cuppa no longer seems to work with Snow Leopard. I reverted back to 1.7. No countdown and the elapsed time freezes to one second more than the chosen countdown. Also, no teabag shows in the Dock.

Simple, effective, and charming tea timer. Does what it does perfectly. So many other timers are overloaded with useless and unneeded features and tacky interfaces. Cuppa has a great icon and, by far, the best "brewing complete" alert/alarm sound of any tea timer out there.

I have just noticed that on cuppa 1.7, the preference "Notify via Growl" is grayed out. Using growl 2.0. I dont know when it started, as i havent enabled the option before. I wonder how I can enable it?

Still my preferred quick timer, very easy to use (right click on dock icon and select one of your preset times to countdown), or enter a custom time. Yeah!

Very nice. I don't use it for brewing tea, but I do use the countdown timer when I'm downstairs on the Mac and the sausage rolls in the oven upstairs need to be checked in 20 minutes.
