Incredibly accurate and fast, the Varia AKU scales is a hardworking scale that both busy baristas and discerning home brewers will love. The Varia AKU’s .1g sensitivity and snappy responsiveness let you follow your favourite recipes to a T, so you always end up with a cup of coffee that you love.
Plus it comes with an auto-tare function and auto-timer so you never mess up your ratios or timing even when you forget to hit that button. Don’t let its sleek design fool you, this scale is tough.
Thanks to its heat-resistant PFA alloy body and waterproofing, it can sit under the espresso machine or your favourite brewer with no fear of hot water splashes. The Varia AKU is also precision machined so it remains stable even as it goes through the rigours of daily use.
Varia AKU Scale Features
Accurate and fast - Quick response time at 0.1g accuracy so you’re never off your technique or recipe.
