Great scale for pour over

I did a bit of research online before getting this scale and am glad that I finally decided to go for it. I was looking for a basic scale without any smart phone connectivity features. It's an affordable scale compared to others and I've found no issues so far.

I wanted to address a couple points that I heard in reviews during my research that I think are really non-issues where people were just looking to be nitpicky:

1. The touch sensitivity being too sensitive... Well, yes it is pretty sensitive, but is that really an issue? This scale is specifically made for pour-overs, not for espresso machines. I get that if you try to use it with an espresso machine and water gets on it, then it could mess with the measurement since the touch sensitivity is very sensitive, but frankly it should not be used with an espresso machine anyway. This scale is too big to be placed on the drip tray of most espresso machines, since the entire scale needs to be on a flat surface to give accurate readings. There is a new version that is smaller and meant for use with espresso machines if that is what you are looking for. I have no issue with the touch sensitivity for pour over.

2. That the tare button is attached to the scale, therefore causing it to mess with the measurement when you press tare... This is a non-issue. Yes, when you press tare there is a moment where the display shows the weight of you pressing a button, but that's with most scales and after a second it tares to 0 which is what the whole point of pressing tare was anyway, so it's a non-issue.

As a note, I chose the black scale because it seems easier to see the display. I saw a video of the white one and it seems a bit more difficult to see the display on the white version, which I also heard in some reviews, though I can't attest to this personally.

Great Scale

Made another purchase at Eight Ounce. Super happy with the Timemore Basic 2 Scale. Great team over there. Cheers.

Great coffee scale

I use this mostly with pour over, and it has been great. The timer and pour flow are super helpful tools for getting a consistently great cup of coffee.
I did have a hard time using it with espresso as it seems the scale is very sensitive to the vibration of the machine.

Love it!

Exactly what I was looking for with my Breville Bambino.

Benton Bowen
Simple but effective

I love having my scale and timer in one place, and this was a nice, relatively inexpensive way to do that
