  • Meet the Black Mirror Basic. It does what a coffee scale needs to do: weigh your coffee to 0.1g and time your brews. What else do you need? If you would like more features like Bluetooth and Wifi connectivity, look at either the Black Mirror Single Sensor and Black Mirror Dual Sensor. The minimal design and easy to read display looks great on any countertop and coffee bar. The Black Mirror Basic scale also works well for baking and cooking!

Does what I need it to, loth looks great

I've been very happy with this scale! I decided I didn't need the features on the smart scales and that for me they weren't worth the jump in price. This scale measures to the 0.1g, and times, and has a beautiful aesthetic. The base is big enough that I can see the screen when my chemex is on it. The UI is intuitive, and comes with a sticker that you can leave on until you've mastered where the buttons are.

Great experience, design, and precision at low price

Searched for hours for rechargeable coffee scales and this seemed to be the only affordable and trustable one, by far. Bought one as a gift and added one for myself after reading reviews around the web (quick power-on, fast updating of weight tracking, USB rechargeable). I use it mainly for V60 and Aeropress and am really happy with it.

Worth It

Scale came well packaged with clear-enough instructions. It worked right out of the gate after charging the first time. I use it only for pour-overs (V60) and both the scale and the timer functions works well and consistently. If you don't need to use it in making espresso, then it's likely all you will need. I like its looks and is much less expensive than the Acaia scales.

Great scale for great price

Not much to say, great scale, does exactly what it says. Happy with my purchase. Highly recommended.

Cool like the song

A moderate sweet spot for price compared to higher end models and really does what you need it to do while looking nice.

If I had one complaint it would be that the insulated pad it comes with should actually be adhered to the body of the scale so it is not loose and floppy. Also the textured ridge pattern is great to prevent slippage but also gets coffee stuck in it, so maybe a slightly different material or texture would resist any errant grounds better.
