Precise Measurements, Lightning Fast Speeds
Effective brewing scales don't have many requirements, so it's the execution on those requirements that really sets the great options apart from the rest of the pack. The Timemore Black Mirror Scale has everything you need for coffee and espresso accuracy to 0.1 gram, a large capacity at 2 kilos, incredibly quick weighing response times, a silicone heat pad to protect your gear, and a built-in timer for tracking your extraction making it a fully-loaded brew scale without overcomplicating the process with additional features to be left by the wayside. Partner all of that with a rechargeable battery and a one year warranty and this scale has to be a top contender for the newest scale to grace your countertop.
This scale exudes simplicity in a truly satisfying way. It starts with the clean design you see before even turning the scale on, a clean matte black finish top gives the impression of carved slate on your countertop. The only two buttons on the surface, for power/tare and timer operation, are hidden below that matte surface, glowing brightly only when the scale is up and running. The simplicity continues through into your user experience as well. The power button will turn on or tare out the scale with a click and turn the power off with a long press. And you can even rely on the auto-off function, which will turn the scale off to save power after 3 minutes of total inactivity or 15 minutes of inactivity with the timer on, if you wander off with your coffee before remembering to long press that power button.
