Equipped with 14 stepped grind settings and an adjustable 1 minute grind timer, the Scala makes short work of your morning grind.

Best of all, the Scala comes in at an affordable pricepoint while offering good consistency for everyday use.

Features
  • Conical Steel Burrs: Sharp steel burrs boast quick, cool grinding.
  • Stepped Grind Adjust: 14 dedicated grind settings offer easy dial-in for Aeropress, pour over, French press and everything in between.
  • Timed Dosing: The Scala comes equipped with a built-in grind timer adjustable in 5 second increments.
  • Compact Footprint: Measuring in at a photo-sized 5"x7" footprint makes the Scala easy to tuck away when not in use.
  • Tool-Free Disassembly: Burr access is a twist of the hopper away for cleaning and maintenance.
    • Pros
      • Compact and Capable: Everything you need and nothing you don't, the Scala is one affordable home coffee grinder.
      • Storage: In particular, the Scala's short stature and stowable cord makes it easy to tuck in a cabinet when not in use.
      • Good Grinds: The Solis grinder's consistency really shines in its medium, drip coffee/pour over range.
    • Cons
      • Little and Loud: The grinder's small size and simple plastic casing make it a bit noisy on the counter.
      • Pressurized Espresso Only: While the Scala does grind fine enough for espresso, you have no effective adjustment capability down at that range.
