New Quiz Result Page
The best quiz is one where you find out more about yourself in the end. And that is what we wanted to achieve with this update. We modified the quiz result page to improve visibility, clarity of choice and to expand the choice the user has. We improved the layout and UI but also added a version of the “All Coffees” page below the main result. Of course with the correct filters selected to reflect your choices in the quiz. Convenient, right? Give her a whirl!
