Great Scale - Matches my Varia Grinder!

Measuring my coffee with this thing before sliding them into my Varia grinder is just what the doctor ordered. Matches my Varia grinder, looks slick, and quality is great. It is a good investment for forever use!

P.D. (Colorado, United States)

I use this for weighing beans and pouring for pourover. Deadly accurate, a serious scale, and unencumbered with IMO unnecessary bluetooth features to spoil your early morning. I’m completely satisfied so far, not just for espresso. Been happily using for about a month. Also, good battery life on the rechargeable battery.
