Digital Scales for Coffee Brewing

Coffee scales have become a key part of weighing coffee in the Pour-over coffee making process. The ultimate goal is to brew the perfect coffee in whatever alternative-brewing method you choose. For pour-over and filter coffee, the coffee scales monitor the weight, time and flow-rates as you brew coffee and on some scales you can use the app provided to bring the coffee making process to life.

Why should you weigh your coffee? Well, time and weight is a massively important part of both espresso and pour over coffee. And getting the both the right ratio and consistency between coffee brews is an essential part of the coffee process. As such small electronic scales with built in timers are an essential part of any barista kit.

The Coffee Gear scales are perfect budget scales, Hario scale has optional stand to support v60, the Brewista is great value and the Ohaus is fast and robust. While the acaia Pearl or Timemore Single Sensor with the use of the coffee app provides a smart and easy way to record your coffee lifestyle. The coffee scale connects to the app, collects the essential coffee brewing data such as coffee bean and water weight, calculate the ratio and allows you to log the coffee brewing data in the app. For the Acaia scales, there are also a range of scale accessories such as protective covers, calibration weights and beautiful cases to really look after the beautiful range available. As baristas in specialty coffee keep chasing great coffee and the perfect brew, coffee scales in Australia are now considered an essential barista tool and we would strongly recommend on of these for a brew bar coffee setup!

What is the best coffee scale?

Our hero scales are the Acaia lunar or the Acaia pearl as these set the standard within the speciality coffee world. Timemore have released the black mirror coffee scale which has become incredibly popular due to its built in timer which is a massive plus for its budget friendly price point. Other brands such as ohaus, brewista and hario all bring something a little different to the table and have unique designs to suit your workspace.

How useful are coffee scales?

Scales are underrated as one of the most important tools when it comes to brewing consistently good coffee. Scales are what separates your regular cup to a specialty coffee. Precision is everything when working with so many variables, and scales are a good place to start.

Can I use a food scale for coffee brewing?

Absolutely! You’ll need to make sure you’ve got scales that can measure accurately to 0.1g so your dose is precise. If your food scale doesn’t have a timer built in, use your phone's stopwatch at the same time you begin to pull your espresso.

How do I use a coffee scale to brew an espresso?

  • Step 1: Adjust your grinder so that your extraction time is aligned with 25-30 seconds.
  • Step 2: Weigh your portafilter basket with 20g of freshly ground beans, then tamper.
  • Step 3: Place the portafilter into the machine and pull your shot. Either use scales underneath the spout to time extraction and weigh the yield.
  • Step 4: Make sure your result aligns with the brewing ratio you chose. If yield is larger than expected make grind size finer to slow the extraction process. If the yield is smaller than expected, you guessed it, make the grind coarser. 3mm of adjustments on the grinder will result in a longer or shorter extraction time by approximately 3-5 seconds.
