Hario Drip Scale Timer | Weight (grams/mL) Black (See the scale in White) Made in Japan
We're not the kind of people who say "You MUST have a scale to make good coffee!" In truth, we're really advocates of the just-eye-ball-it approach. It's why we love using one scoop and a server with level indicators to help keep coffee- and water-in consistent.
Over time, though, we've also really grown to love using a scale to keep our coffee extra consistent. It's also important for us to use scales when we make coffee at pop-up events. We can't literally taste every guest's coffee before serving! Using a scale helps us ensure we're making our perfect water-to-coffee ratio every time.
We've used various scales for making coffee over the years. But the Hario Drip Scale has emerged as our favorite, for several reasons:
Simplicity: The scale has two functions—weight (in grams) and a timer. Hold down the "Tare" button to reset scale to "0," hold down the "Start/Stop" button to reset timer.
Durability: This little guy is pretty tough! We've dropped ours many times and it seems totally unphased.
Design: We really enjoy the sleek black matte appearance and feel of the scale. And it's old-school digital display reminds us of calculators we used growing up.
Affordable: Compared to some other scales out there, this scale is within reach.
