Londinium on order, need some digital scales - recommendations please


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My Londinium is on order and i want to try and get ahead of the game with what to do when it arrives. Watching lots of videos and reading countless treads and they all seem use a small set of digital scales to weigh out the grind and the shot. Had a look on amazon and ebay and there are 100's to choose from, with and without timers.  No idea which is a good or a bad one so can someone please point me in the right direction of a suitable set, preferably not to expensive as my budget has been well and truly blown on the new machine 🙂

 

Thanks

I've got the 0.01g version of the BriFit ones @Fez posted. They're brilliant - same accuracy as £200+ scales, gives an instant reading and can take a bit of water. Nice blue backlight too. No timer though.

They're very simple, they don't have the bells and whistles or build quality of the more expensive brands but if they broke I would buy the exact same ones again.

For ones with a timer I've seen these recommended:

Also people get these ones:

I has these once and found the buttons a bit 'clicky'. But I think they're a reasonably popular choice.

These are all lower end scales. The more expensive ones will allow you to use an app and give you more info. Maybe as you have a Londinium you want high end scales to match! Acaia is the brand to look for there. Or may Felicita Arc.

What Londinium model are you getting, Fantastic machine, you wont be disappointed, along with the top support you get from Reiss.

  • Just buy a set from ebay. You do not need anything fancy. Then when you get them wet you are not worried. The ability to weigh to 0.01 gm is nonsense. With coffee, you let your taste buds do the talking so if they tell you the coffee is not right...........more importantly, do you know what the scales do within the process?

@pbsmith Well matey, if you get stuck, all you need to do is ask on here....what price is the Compressa when it lands with you

Is that the Wife price or the real one 🤣

officially its £1500 if anyone asks 
unofficially it’s £2261.50 including the vat (and less the 9% for bacs payment) got in just before the 5% price increase

Reiss is providing a 9% discount for BACS payment? Is that available for all Londinium purchases?

The £1500 is the wife price so vat is irrelevant 😀

My bad, I misread what you actually said!
