Acaia Lunar Coffee Scales

Recommended Posts

Looks great but it is just too pricey. Considering how cheap jewellery scales on fleabay are, I would have to break close to 30 cheapo scales before these scales made economic sense.

 

But they are damn sexy.

They'll be even more than that landed here. The pearl is more in pounds here, than dollars there - as I seem to recall.

They look very nice, but I can't see them replacing a cup.

Price is likely to be prohibitive but really nice.

Need to see them side by side with the Pearl. Unless they're wafer thin I wouldn't consider it, they don't offer that much. Unless you majorly feck something up the Pearl's are effectively waterproof. The Pearl's work fine on my drip tray.

 

I also like the fact the portafilter fits on the Pearls - don't think you could get a PF on the Lunar's going by the pic. ]

 

They do look really cool though.

I'm just trying to talk myself out of buying them. My mate is moving to California in October so maybe he could send me a set over...

I actually saw the Pearls in the flesh last week for the first time, they are about 5 times bigger than I thought they were from looking online. Far too chunky for me.

 

If the Lunar can fit a small chemex and was half the price they are charging right now I'd buy one.

some chap has made the following comment

 

 

papas_bagel_barWhen will @acaiacoffee make a set of scales that will tell the coffee machine that there is the desired amount of espresso in the cup and stop the flow?

 

surely that is already done through volumetrics on most commercial and some home-use machines. Adding a Bluetooth component to the machine itself doesn't sound like Acaia's responsibility.

They'll fit a small chemex probably but resin we're looking at 2x the price

I know, I saw the cost at £200+ and cried a little.

 

Seen a few people tell them on twitter they are charging too much.

This is all that counts :)

 

Thought that's what the scales do.
