  1. 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
  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. Tsangpa

    Acaia Scales

    Pearl or Lunar, white or black. Anyone wanting to part with a set of these?
  4. Whats the difference between Acaia Lunar and Acaia pearl scales?
  5. Perfect condition and still have some months of warranty remaining (5 or 6). £120 inc P&P or £110 collected (Sheffield).
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Acaia pearl scales for sale. Well used but in good condition, latest firmware etc. Surplus to requirements. They are white and come in original box with all the original accessories (charging cable and round rubber mat). I will take £80 inc. delivery and will dispatch to the UK only Can post pictures when I get home.
  9. There seems to be a growing number of Acaia owners on the forum now so I thought there would be value starting a thread to share experiences/tips etc. I'm particularly interested in other CFUK user names on the Acaia feed to I can nose at your brewing prints... so I'll start a list - please add yourself (If your not using the Acaia feeds bung your name on the list anyway so we know who you are) [TABLE=width: 500, align: left] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD]CFUK ID[/TD] [TD]Acaia Feed ID[/TD] [TD]Acaia app type used[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]1[/TD] [TD]Daren[/TD] [TD]Daren[/TD] [TD]Android (beta version)[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]2[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]3[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]4[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE]
  10. 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.
  11. 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 to share? Or any success connecting to the scales via custom software?
  12. Gotta admire the ingenuity in this https://www.home-barista.com/grinders/espresso-preciso-bluetooth-scale-adapter-for-doserless-grinders-t36671.html
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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 so got a spanking new black set) and as such in excellent condition. If you're able to collect obviously I'll reduce that by the postage too. Any inspection also welcome.
  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. 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
  19. 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 make a difference. He recommended something called an Acaia Lunar scale as he said it was waterproof and had lots of features for weighing and timing shots. I nearly boked when he told me the price, but he said they will last a life time. I found these ones on eBay, but they are still a bit too expensive for my liking, considering the last pair of weigh scales I bought were £9.99! Acaia Scales Can anyone else provide opinion on these or recommend an alternative? Much appreciated.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Looking to get a set of either Acaia pearl or lunar scales that are in perfect condition... ...and also a set of Mahlgut distribution tool and Tamper (58.5mm) (ideally in stained oak finish but would consider others as well at the right price) Thanks
  23. 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
  24. Hi everyone, i have just receive my AL from Ronsil and decided to take this video. Hope you enjoy it
