Why Coffee Scales are Important
Accuracy – When it comes to perfecting good coffee, finding the right ratio of ground coffee to water is essential. Different beans can be more or less dense, making volumetric measurements inaccurate compared to weighted measurements. Further, the volume of your espresso can vary widely depending on freshness and roast level, making a scale that much more useful in seeing your true brew ratio.
Consistency and Repeatability – Once coffee and water are measured, a scale enables you to repeat this with the same result every time!
Reducing Waste – When using a grind time function on your grinder it is often easy to grind more coffee than you’ll use, resulting in wasted coffee. Using weighted single doses can reduce your waste almost entirely.
Experimentation – Using a scale allows you to play around with different espresso brew ratios so you can find that perfect shot. Some coffees will taste better with a 1:2 ratio (for example, 20 grams of ground coffee to 40 grams of liquid espresso) which can mellow the body and highlight subtle notes, while other coffees may have a more satisfying body at a 1:1 ratio. If you want more control over the flavor of your coffee, or you simply like to geek out and find different flavors in each roast, a scale is an essential tool.
Different Scales for Different Brew Methods
A scale can be useful for all different methods of coffee. For automatic drip coffee makers, french press/immersion, pour overs, iced coffee, AeroPress, etc, a scale will be more accurate than using a tablespoon to measure and can greatly increase the flavor of your preferred method. Once again, it is all about finding the right ratio between coffee/water and being able to repeat that result every time. For espresso, it will allow you to take things to the next level and will eliminate a lot of frustration and wasted shots.
