About this deal

It has the 100% satisfaction guarantee: if you’re not happy with the scale you can return it within 30 days. Batteries. As I mentioned earlier, I do prefer rechargeable scales than having to hunt for batteries, although to be fair you could of course use rechargeable AAA batteries. The price, it's one of the most expensive coffee scales aimed at manual brew methods and is around three times the price of some of the more reasonably priced options above. To date, coffee shops have typically relied on a set of Acaia or Hario scales. Acaia offer robust, water-resistant models suited to being next to an espresso machine, whilst Hario are more suited to the filter brew bar and are more affordable Simple to use. Good basic functions including timer and auto-off. Decent sized scale surface compatible with brewing into larger jugs. The bad stuff.

However, these measurements are not just wrong but also inconvenient and, in one way or the other, cannot guarantee you any decent result. Brewing excellent coffee must not be taken for granted: it’s quite a scientific approach, made up of data, formulas, ratios, tools and so on.Although the sensitivity is reportedly 0.1g, as with the coffee gator scales there are a significant number of users saying that they don't actually appear to be as sensitive as they're supposed to be. I just bought these USB type C charging port covers, and they are very inexpensive, but I'd have preferred to not have to faff around buying something like this. The price. They're probably around two hundred quid more than the majority of people would consider spending on coffee scales – and some would see the price of these scales as utter lunacy, see what I did there? ;-). But they are made with pricey materials, they're certainly well built, and nothing feels cheap about them. This is the reason I've said that I “used to” own these scales. Technically I still do, but they no longer work. I had a little bit of a spill, I wiped the scales, and thought nothing of it – but the next time I went to use them, I turned them on and the weight reading was continually increasing. This is another set of coffee scales I've owned – and I say “owned” and not “own”, for a reason I'll get to shortly…

Please bear in mind that not all manufacturers provide correct imagery and we may put a similar or alternative image to the actual product for illustration purposes only.The actual item you receive may differ from that which is displayed, for example the box may have changed or a model may have been upgraded or changed after we have added the product online. The scales are very responsive in their 0.1g accuracy - they are fast to update and the display is clear from various viewing angles; you can keep an eye on it from a few meters away. Bluetooth connectivity and apps (a lot of people buy the Acaia lunar for flow profiling, for example for using with the Sage Dual Boiler with the bluetooth app so they can use the Slayer mod & pull flow profiled shots with lighter roasts.Creating great coffee is all about consistently doing the same thing and using the right amount of coffee and timing the extraction just right are two of the variables that will make a big difference to overall quality.
