If you want the most out of your cup then these scales are essential. Follow our brew guide to start yourself on the right track to getting a whole new world out of your coffee. It’s ok – get a little geeky about it!
Example. So you want to pull a 40ml shot of espresso
– General brew ratio is 2:1. 2 parts water to 1 part coffee. So you want to start with 20g in to 40mls out
– Could you tell the difference between 20g and 25g of coffee ?
– That extra 5g of coffee represents 25% more coffee. Would you put 250g of flour into a cake if it called for 200g. What do you think would be the end result ? Same with coffee.
Same for infusion time. We all know not to over brew a pot of tea. Same goes for coffee – and it’s very easy to loose track of a minute or two in the morning when brewing a cup.
These scales with timer are the perfect tool for making a properly time and brew a shot of espresso.
