When you’re ready for true consistency in your coffee game, it’s time for a scale. Tablespoons and coffee scoops are great to eyeball and estimate, but to really dial in a great cup at home, you need the same tools your baristas are using at the coffee house. This Hario gram scale has a built in timer for your pour over recipes too!
Scales usually come after a good grinder purchase. If you don’t have a grinder yet, we recommend getting one first. It will probably be a bigger upgrade for you than just a scale. The Bodum Bistro is a great burr grinder, and the Baratza Encore is a premium step up.
