The same volume of beans and ground coffee weigh differently across different blends and roasts because of varying density, moisture and oil content. Small changes in the brewing process can make big differences to coffee taste and aroma, and with speciality coffee now the benchmark there is one thing every barista seeks: consistency.
The starting point is to identify the correct weight of coffee – any variation will create a difference in taste. Busy coffee shops brew different blends of coffee and use different grinders, scoops and other necessary tools while working at pace to fulfil orders. To add to this some baristas will use their hand or fingers to brush away excess coffee from the top of the portafilter while others will not. The only way to avoid these inconsistencies is to weigh doses from the coffee coming out of the grinder, and the amount of espresso coming out of the machine, everything should be weighed.
Extraction time is also key. With pour-over coffee, small changes to the amount of time the water is left to filter through the coffee grounds affect the strength of the brew even if the coffee dose remains constant. Coffee brewing scales help to pin down the right dosage and time for both espresso and pour-over coffee, putting baristas a step closer to producing perfect cups of coffee every time and keeping their customers coming back for more.Easy to use brew scale with a timer that works independently of the scale. The dual display allows users to view weight and time simultaneously, making it easy to experiment with brewing recipes and improve consistency.
