Rave Coffee Roasters
  • BREWISTA LAUNCHES INTO THE UK MARKET WITH SMART SCALE

    Brewista has introduced its Smart Scale into the UK coffee market. Designed for pour over and espresso coffee, the scale auto times and auto tares and has nano technology which makes it highly water resistant. It is the first scale that automatically starts a timer as soon as the liquid hits the glass, and tares both time and scale once the cup or glass is removed from it. It weighs from 0.1g to 2kg and has four brewing models including two options for espresso, pour over coffee and a manual mode.

    Launched at the recent London Coffee Festival is it the first of a range of new products developed by Brewista that will be available exclusively from Coffee Hit, a leading supplier to the coffee industry. Established in 2014, Brewista is a collaboration of engineers, designers, coffee and tea aficionados, roasters and brewers with decades of combined experience in the brewed beverage industry. It combines the highest level of technology with the craftsmanship and know-how of award winning brewers and roasters from around the world.

    Commenting on the new scale, Paul Radin, Managing Director of Coffee Hit, said: “As coffee shops are constantly working to improve the quality of the coffee served weighing and timing are critical factors in the process. Brewista’s new Smart Scale is the answer to so many issues that baristas face on a daily basis, and it taps into the emerging trend of pour over coffee which is set to be a mainstay for years to come. It ensures that speed and efficiency targets are met, and helps produce the finest quality coffee. Basically it’s a barista’s dream as it takes away the headache of weighing and ensuring the correct amounts of coffee and water are used. We know that serving the highest quality of coffee is paramount and the Brewista Smart Scale goes some way to achieving this.”

    The Brewista Smart Scale is available at RRP £40.00 and will be on sale from June 2015 on www.coffeehit.co.uk. Prelaunch orders are being taken.

      I noticed yesterday, CoffeeHit website stated 're-stocking' for this item.

      This is going to be a huge seller!

      Timing from when the liquid hits the glass isn't all that useful for espresso though. For pourover it's a good idea.

      I too picked up on that. For espresso, I find it can easily be 10+ secs into pulling a shot before any espresso is seen.

      The timer on AUTO1 mode (Espresso) starts as soon as the scale tares itself
      So when you hit the brew button and place the cup on the scale there is about a 1-2 second delay and the timer starts

      There are 4 modes
      AUTO1 - self tare and start timer
      AUTO2 - self tare and manual timer
      HAND1 - self tare, wait until coffee is added, auto start timer when change in weight (liquid being poured)
      HAND2 - self tare, wait until coffee is added, manually start timer

      Are you the only one with these scales at the moment Glenn. Is anyone likely to be at the Rave day with a set? They didn't have them out when I went to the CH stand at coffee festival.

      In other words, they are super versatile.

      These scales would be PERFECT for work! I wonder how much they lag, if at all? Or if they are consistent in weight (I.e. if I put something that weighs 20g on the scales, tare, take that thing off and put it back on... Will the scales still say zero?) This is a huge problem with scales. Some are more consistent than others.

      There are a number of testers who have the prototype scales and no sets are likely to be at the Coffee Forums UK day next week.

      The CoffeeHit website will be the exclusive seller of these scales when they land.

      Here's a preview of the self tare and auto start

      Take it they wouldn't like a group being flushed on them multiple times?

      Yeah, I prefer the look of the lunar scales but you can't really argue with that video. And the orange display just for jeebsy

      The lunars look amazing but probably be 3x the price. This display looks like it will be legible in sunlight too

      Agreed, interested to see how it performs before taking the plunge on this. Tempted by a decent scale for the drip tray although my current £11 option is doing pretty well at the moment.

      I was more concerned about the abuse inflicted on the tamper!! This video should have an 18 rating

      Are they water resistant?

      Not sure i'd use the auto-start timer, as i like to start from the moment i turn on the pump (which is fairly standard for espresso nes pas?).
