A great scale for roasting, brewing, cupping, etc, at a great price!
Positive Product Points
Very easy to use Great cost vs. value Accurate enough for most any application (1 gram sensitivity 0-1kg, 2 gram sensitivity 1-2kg or 1/8 oz sensitivity) Scale can be re-zeroed Looks great (IMO) Lithium battery included Easily switches between oz and gram. 5 lb. capacity makes this a great shop scale.
Negative Product Points
None so far.
I love this scale. I use it everyday at the shop to weigh out coffee for drip, french press, and whole bean sales. I also use it at my house for roasting. I have used this scale for cupping and it worked just fine for me. I wish the scale was slightly more accurate, but I wouldn't expect anything more from such a low price tag. Not to say that the scale isn't accurate. It has 1/8 oz sensitivity and one gram sensitivity from 0-1 kg and 2 gram sensitivity from 1-2 kg in metric. I love the fact that it switches from grams to oz/pounds so easily. I weigh out all of my coffee for press pots, roasting, cupping, etc in grams, and then if someone wants a pound of coffee beans I don't have to figure out the math in my head from grams to pounds I simply press a button and it switches over to pounds with 1/8 oz sensitivity, ensuring that I truly am giving the customer 1 lb. of coffee. I would definitely recommend (and I do frequently) this scale to anyone who needs an accurate scale for brewing, roasting, or cupping but doesn't want to spend a ton of money on one.
Purchased from SweetMarias.com. I have never had any problems with them at all, and have placed many orders with them. They are always very prompt with deliveries, and you will receive both a confirmation email from them and an email from UPS regarding your tracking number as soon as the order is processed. I have nothing but praise for SweetMaria's customer service and high quality green beans.
