This V60 coffee scale can be used with any pour over coffee method of your choice whether that’s a Chemex or some other custom solution. The scale works beautifully with almost all methods giving you that precision you need in time and weight. This scale includes a drip timer for the perfect bloom and an integrated timer for the perfect pour time and control. There are two versions of this scale, a stainless steel plate (pictured above) and a completely black version that also looks and works just as well. This scale might seem expensive, but with a 0.1g accuracy, this product is hard to beat for those serious enough about making great coffee.

Acaia Black Pearl Digital Coffee Scale

The Acaia Black Pearl makes it on our list as the premium choice for complete integration with other technology. This Bluetooth enabled scale will connect with your smartphone and a special app called Filtru (completely free app). You can monitor all the measurements through the application (Pour Over Coffee Apps) while the Filtru app guides you through the entire brewing process. The app is so good, I can’t believe it’s free and the fact that it connects to the Acaia Black Pearl Digital makes me wonder if the app developers will start charging people in the future? Maybe not, but for now, it’s completely free. The Acaia Black Pearl Digital does come with its own native application for the smartphone as well. This scale does come at a premium price but has the looks and features you’d expect from a premium-priced product. This scale would pair well with the Fellow FX + Fellow EKG for a complete pour over system made for the techie.
