bemece Digital Kitchen Scale Drip Coffee Scale with Timer, 3 kg/0.1 g Kitchen Food Scale with Tare Function, Batteries Included (Blue) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07D4MVPQB/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_L35-CbH4M4K26

There you go. Give them a try and let me know what you think
I've had the same ones for a while now. The only negatives I can think of are:
1. if you forget to stop the timer they don't auto power off. I came back to mine 12 hours later and they were happily counting away, having wrapped around a few times!
2. I can't figure out a way to reset the timer without powering off and on again

Apart from that, the rubber mat is a literal life saver (I killed my previous scales by spilling water on them), they're reasonably accurate as far as I can tell, and although nowhere near as responsive as the top brands, they're also a fraction of the price

Haha yes the timer. I’ve done that before. To reset it, just hold the start/stop for a few seconds and it will reset

*walks over to scales, holds down button*

Huh! Thanks man! Can't believe I didn't try that before.

Was this by post or in person? If so, how do they refill the tin?


You gotta go down and fill it - they have plastic hoppers you can fill up from. Personally, I don’t like the idea that the beans sit open like that, though.

Good Coffee Cartel in Glasgow do a similar thing with metal tins.

Woohoo Steampunk. Those tins look great

Yep, when I took the LSOL discount off the tin was pretty much cost neutral :)

Coffee is pretty sweet (literally) as well.

Now you've had time to put these to the test how are they working out? Are you still pleased with them, have you noticed anything you might want to change if you could? Marks out of ten for usability, functionality, and anything else you thinks counts. Thanks

My scales turned up today. They're definitely more accurate than the Amir scales I was using..however I've noticed that the scale is a bit skew, a bit hard to capture in a picture.the gap between the top of the scales and the buttons(where the cutout is) is far smaller on the left than the right. Are yours like this too @joey24dirt ?

Love that table, and if you think that mess, you should pop round to mine for 5 minutes

If you're referring to your workshop, that's not a fair comparison. This is my living room haha

Straight to page 65/people to read about Stephen 'in my mug' Leighton and Joanna Alm. We used to collect our beans from the factory (HasBean) doors years and years ago, even before my first machine. I remember drooling over whatever it was they sold back then, a Gaggia? It was £700 ish, way out what we could afford at the time, so we stuck with the best beans, a hand grinder, and French press 😁

Quote from p.74: so, we made a really bad website with a khaki-green background and brown text'. Oh dear 😂

The slow boat from China has docked this morning with a shiny/matt tamper! Thankfully, due to the weather, the postman was able to dock right at my front door 🌊 🛥️
