Can this scale be calibrated?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2016
Is your hario coffee scale from Japan or China ?
Melanie U on Nov 25, 2016
Best Answer: I purchased two of the Hario scales from SCG. Mine are labeled on the unit as made in China. The scales work great and have not been a disappointment in any way.

Does the scale have an auto time off feature? If so can it be disabled? My current kitchen scale shuts down at around a minute so if my sleepy head isn't paying attention (and you know, I've not had any coffee yet) it's way too easy to lose track of how much water is in my Chemex.

Best Answer: Hi, Tim. It does have an auto-off feature but it takes a while. I've forgotten to turn it off and came back to it reading nine minutes and counting. Since this is a coffee scale and nobody in their right mind would brew for nine plus minutes it's safe to say this scale won't shutdown as you are brewing.

Is this scale certified legal for trade?
Dave S on Dec 18, 2014
Best Answer: I have no idea. i bought this only for personal home use, not for business or trade. So, for my purposes, being certified legal for trade was not a concern. Unless there is some legal requirement for certification, such as a statute, ordinance or regulation, why do you care - what difference would it make?

A basic question: what exactly is the scale there to measure?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2013
Best Answer: I use the scale to measure two things. First, I measure the weight of the ground coffee. Second, I use the timer to help me time the pour so the coffee isn't over extracted. Together, these allow me to brew a consistent cup of coffee, so once I have found what I like, I can brew that time after time. Intangibles: I enjoy the process. I saw a barista using something like this at a local coffee shop, and thought I should try it. I'm glad I did! Is it strictly necessary? Naw. Does it help me enjoy my morning better? Oh, yes.

Is it waterproof?
Sally S on Aug 30, 2016
Best Answer: Hey Sally!

the Hario scale is nor waterproof, but is water-resistant. I wouldn't put in in your drip tray or wash it, but a little splash of water now and then won't hurt it.

Really good but be careful of spills.Review by Joey97
I love my scale, and I would recommend buying it. However, while making a pour over I got distracted and my cup overflowed onto the scale. Somehow, some of liquid got *inside* the scale and now the readout panel is dead. So, beware. I wrote Hario and this type of damage is not covered by their warranty. Other than that, this is a great intro. level scale.

Work in progressReview by Steven
I am a "newbie" to brewing coffee using good equipment at home. Recently, I purchased the Hario V60 drip scale and Baratza Encore grinder to accompany the Chemex receptacle and Able cone. Prior to using, I read through the instructions a couple of times. I also watched a few SCG and other coffee aficionado videos to help me determine proper grind and water measurements, as well as brewing time.

The trickiest part of the process is getting the coffee gram weight to water ratio correctly. Prior to using the scale, I had typically used a TB scoop to measure out 4 TB of beans and added 500 ml of water. The V60 scale equated my first measurement at around 32 grams of coffee. I had thought it was going to be closer to 50 grams. Nevertheless I kept the 500 ml of water.

I followed the V60 procedures precisely, including resetting the tare weight and starting/stopping the timer and it took me 4.5 minutes to brew the coffee. The V60 instructions indicate that it should take approximately 3 minutes. My taste test found the coffee to be balanced, with good color and delicious flavor to the end. The Able cone creates a more French press type flavor, allowing a more concentrated coffee flavor than the Chemex paper filter.

I liked the coffee I brewed with this gear. I really enjoy the fact that I will be able to tweak the process in the quest to find that "perfect" cup of coffee. (Posted on 10/13/2013)
