The Hario V60 drip scale is ideal for manual brewing with simultaneous weight and time readings. The key to brewing great coffee is measuring extraction time and weight of coffee and water. Hario has made this process seemless by offering both in the same scale. Simply turn on the scale, place your chosen manual brewer on the weighing platform, and tare to zero to begin. After adding your coffee, press tare again to start measuring the water. To activate the timer, press the "START STOP" button and begin brewing. You can pause the timer at any time by pressing the start button and press again to re-start. Once brewing is complete you can either turn off the display or the power will automatically turn off after 5 minutes.
The top plate is made with stainless steel and also contains insulating materials to prevent heat from transferring to the base. The main body's top plate is covered with a flat acrylic plate, allowing water and coffee grounds to be easily wiped off. The plate can be removed from the main body simply by turning it. The underside has non-slip rubber feet in each corner, reducing movement during the brewing process to ensure accuracy and consistency. Battery lasts up to 80 hours on a charge and can be recharged using USB.
