Thanks to the Acaïa application (available in English), you can create and save personalized extraction profiles for your different preparation methods, whether Chemex, aeropress, French press, V60, espresso and many more. So you can reproduce your favorite coffees with ease and precision. The real-time flow indicator allows you to visualize the flow speed of your coffee during extraction, while suggesting thresholds to achieve an ideal flow rate.

What are the advantages of using a precision scale to prepare your coffee?

For coffee made with a V60 coffee maker, it is recommended to use a medium to fine grind. The grind should be fine enough to allow optimal extraction of the flavors and aromas of the specialty coffee, but not so fine as to cause the filter to clog and the flow to be too slow. The ideal grind for a V60 coffee maker is between the texture of granulated sugar and that of table salt. When brewing your coffee using gentle extraction, adjust the grind based on the time the water flows through the ground coffee. If the water flows too quickly, the grind will be too coarse and the coffee may lack flavor. If the water flows too slowly, the grind is too fine and the coffee may become bitter.
