  1. Whilst looking at the acaia scales the VOOM Smart Coffee Scale came up on my google search: https://www.perfectdailygrind.com/2017/09/voom-smart-scale-aims-make-extraction-easier-home-baristas/ Anyone heard of it? Looks interesting and as a kickstarter will probably be a lot cheaper (fingers crossed) than something like the acaia. I signed up for their subs list but haven't received any info on the kickstarter as yet.
  2. Didn't see this mentioned anywhere on here so: https://acaia.co/products/merch-cinco Anybody tempted? Appears to be smaller than the lunar
  3. Whats the difference between Acaia Lunar and Acaia pearl scales?
  4. When the recent run of Feldgrind was released, I accidentally ordered two, like the professional plonker I am. I'd really like to do a swap for an Acaia Pearl scale if someone has one kicking around which they want to trade with me? The Feldgrind is completely brand spanking new and has not been taken out of it's tube.
  5. Hey everyone - got a set of Acaia Pearl I'd like to sell - I'm simply not using them enough these days as I'm not working from home so much anymore. I'm after £100 + £5 postage. You're welcome to collect if you live near Chelmsford or can get to Old Street, London. I've got the box and heatproof mat - though not pictured, you can see they've been used, twice a day for around a year I'd estimate.
  6. Purchased new late 2015 & in excellent working order. Latest firmware & software installed. Download the Acaia Pearl Updater & Acaia Scale App FW 2.0.008 & you are ready to go. Comes with USB Cable for charging the Scales. Will also include a certified 100g weight for calibration. Will send fully charged Pictures are of the actual scale. Take note of very slight split in the protective cover. Never dropped but happened whilst prising off the waterproof cover for cleaning. Download the User Manual l

    Acaia Lunar

    Hi All, For sale are my Acaia Lunar Scales (purchased Dec-15). Boxed, with all accessories, and in great condition. £150 delivered - paypal only please Many Thanks
  8. I've been thinking about buying a Acaia Lunar. I'm not planning on using any of the 'app' features, but still, I'm always a bit worried with these devices that when their respective apps become unsupported you lose functionality. Ideally, Acaia would release some protocol documentation and/or an SDK for the scales, but all I've found is a 2 year old post on their support site indicating that they plan on releasing an SDK. I have found 2 interesting projects on GitHub: https://github.com/bpowers/btscale https://github.com/h1kari/AcaiaScale Anyone else have any more info
  9. Hey, I did some searching but could not find any information if something like "Acaia Pearl" would fit under "Profitec 500" portafilter to weigh espresso shots. There seems to be quite a good clearing in that particular machine, correct me if I'm wrong.
  10. I bought these from Coffee Island all of a week ago so they are as new, still at 100% charge. They're just not for me although their responsiveness and accuracy are quite something after the kitchen scales I've been using for years. CI are doing them at the moment for £140 and I'm looking for £110 including Special Delivery or meet up in London. Receipt included so you will have an almost full warranty. Thanks for looking, Ed
  11. I am looking to buy either the Felicita Arc or Acaia Pearl scales. I am sick of scales failing due to water ingress. can anyone that owns either scales please advise which is best to go for as they look almost identical Thank you
  12. Hi everyone, i have just receive my AL from Ronsil and decided to take this video. Hope you enjoy it
  13. Perfect condition and still have some months of warranty remaining (5 or 6). £120 inc P&P or £110 collected (Sheffield).
  14. I'll shortly be ordering myself a few bits from Pantechnicon (specifically the tray mod for the Acaia Lunar and some riser feet). If you're a GS/3 / Linea Mini owner and not familiar with his stuff it can be found here: https://www.pantechnicondesign.com/ Shipping looks a flat rate of $55 minimum so to ease the pain I thought Id ask on here to see if anyone else was interested in any bits and bobs. I'll be ordering in the next week so there's plenty of time.
  15. Hi, I am new to the forums and wondering you could provide me with some help. I have a simple setup at home of a Gaggia Coffee Deluxe and ROK manual grinder. I have been using a variety of beans to try and make nice espresso and americanos. Sometimes the shots I make are quite bitter and burnt tasting, some other times they are great. But I struggle to get it consistent. A friend who used to work in 3FE in Dublin told me I should get a set of scales to help ensure I have the same amount of beans everytime. I though this was a bit of overkill, but he said it really does mak
  16. Anniversary edition of Acaia espresso scale - Cinco. Bought in November 2018 from CoffeeDesk.com. Perfect condition, box, all accessories (accessories were not used). 150 GBP + shipping.
  17. Light home use only. £100.00 plus postage Comes supplied with original box. USB port has a rubber grommet fitted for added security. Grab a real bargain as Acaia Pearls retail at £140.00
  18. Hi, Just after a bit of advice from anyone that's owned/owns a set of the Acaia pearl scales. I've just bought a set (used) and there seems to be a fair bit of play (wobble) on the top plate. I can only compare it to my lunars and there's none on those so I was wondering if thats the norm on the pearls? Thanks in advance you wonderful bunch
  19. Hey, im trying to pick some scales and can't pick which ones. i want to be able to weigh the portafilter as a key feature and think the Lunar does this well and I could also use it for other kitchen applications but it's too big to fit on my drip tray (Silvia) Does the Lunar have a non-clunky way of being able to weigh portafilters, and is it the right one? advice appreciated
  20. As my lovely wife's facilitated my coffee habit from a Sage barista express and smart grinder to an L1-P/R120 setup and not once as much as sighed (well, appart from the one 'bobbit' comment) I figured it only fair I offer up some of the non-essential gear to the gods of happy wives, so I can put it towards something she'll like that's not a milk based drink So on the sacrificial altar... My Acaia Lunar and Pearl scales (black) - £260 inc special delivery (think Christmas). Both are under 6 months old with the Pearls almost new (I wasn#t happy with the second hand white ones I had
  21. Bargain (if you're after this particular scale). http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acaia-Lunar-Coffee-Scale-2-year-Warranty-/112475173503?hash=item1a300af27f:g:3CUAAOSwjL5ZOGj5 £170 free delivery and warranty it seems.
  22. Hello, up for a sale Acaia Lunar scale, bought from coffeeomega.co.uk in original packing and with everything that came with new. Used only 2-3 months and is as new without scratch. http://www.coffeeomega.co.uk/product/acaia-lunar/ Price: 175£ + shipping 10£.
  23. Hey guys I've just got myself a little v60 pour over setup and up until now I've been using my Pearl scales just for espresso. I have tried using the brew chart in the app and I'm finding things slightly confusing. It defaults to 1st pour - bloom then 2nd pour but most recipes I've seen require multiple pours. Do most people create custom settings for this? Would be be great to get some tips from any other Acaia users. Cheers
  24. Hi, As part of getting rid of all of my coffee gear for my big move here are my acaia scales. They're the original kickstarter version with the round mat and come boxed with charger plug etc. They were bought rom Aphelion well used but are still in the same good condition. Price is £80 including postage.
  25. Has any one calibrated their Scales yet? It appears setup to use a 500 gram calibration weight. I have a full set of weights up to 200g but will need to purchase a 500g Now here's a world I didn't know existed "accuracy of calibration weights" Apparently they come E1 > E2 >F1 > F2 > M1 > M2 > M3 with E1 being most correct. Prices range from a few £s on ebay for M2 & M3 up to £hundreds for F1 upwards. Anyone any idea how correct does the weight need to be for coffee/water?
