Hario V60 Coffee Scale and Timer - $48
Posted by Mark Prince, 6:00am Permalink to this blog entry

Huge Price Drop From Last Year! Hario has designed a scale from the ground up for manual drip coffee preparation and it's proving to be very popular with the Coffee Nerds out there.

This scale packs a ton of innovation. It is accurate to 0.1g (accuracy is 1g over 200g, which Hario says was done for a fast scale readout). It has a maximum weight of 2kg, and has an automatic timer / count up function for brewing to very precise times and weights.

In addition, the scale is designed to slot into a new coffee brewing stand also designed by Hario to work efficiently with their V60 filter brewing system. The entire setup can work as a consolidated unit, with the scale measuring accurate brewing weights for both the receptacle pitcher and the filter portion of the brewing device.

It also uses AAA batteries (most small scales use harder to find button batteries) and while the normal "auto off" is 5 minutes, the display will stay on for up to 99 minutes if you have the timer function active.

This scale is now down to $48 on Amazon, the lowest price I've seen all year. Last year it was $65 everywhere!
