NEW Hario V60 Drip Scale with Timer
NEW Hario V60 Drip Scale with Timer allows you to simultaneously weigh coffee beans, measure hot water and time the extraction, which are the main parameters for the production of quality coffee from a dripper or Chemex. Drip Scale makes brewing of your favourite coffee even more pleasant!
It never ceases to amaze me that people will spend loads on different coffee brewing methods and multiple burr grinders but will measure out their coffee beans with the cheap plastic scoop that comes with their French press.
The whole point of experimenting with coffee is to play around with different ratios of water to coffee. And the only way to do so accurately is with a scale. Otherwise, it will just be guesswork.
In fact, brewing coffee isn’t much different from baking muffins. Of course you can eyeball it to a certain degree, but it also means that your results will fluctuate wildly.
So if you spend just a little bit of time contemplating beans and brewing methods, I’d strongly suggest getting a coffee scale.
Why use a scale when brewing coffee?
The flavor of coffee changes depending on the ratio of coffee and water you use.
Certain beans and brew methods really shine at the standard 1:15 ratio of coffee to water, while others require a totally different approach. The main takeaway though is this: You need to be able to measure both beans and water in order to hit your ideal ratio.
While this can be done to a certain degree by using volume measurements (like with a tablespoon scoop), it will never be accurate unless you use a scale and measure out the exact mass of both the coffee and the water.
This is because different beans and different roasts produce beans with different densities. Therefore, beans with the same volume may have completely different masses and cannot be compared with volume.
NEW Hario V60 Drip Scale with Timer is easy to use. After unboxing it, you will find the unit compact and well designed. The controls are simple and easy to press. The scale uses the metric system, measuring to the 1/10 of a gram if needed.
Thanks to the great design and high-quality workmanship, the scales will be a perfect decoration in every kitchen and you can use it to weigh more than just coffee. A built-in timer, tare option, clear display and simple use guarantee the comfort of use. The scales are powered by two AAA batteries (included), the maximum weighing range is 2 kilograms.
