Best Digital Coffee Scales for Pour-Over Drip Coffee Brewing

“Pour-Over” is a manual coffee brewing method that is preferred by many people around the world. It works almost the same way french press does, but instead of pushing the coffee ground down, the coffee is filtered through a funnel, dripping from the top to the bottom of the brewer.

Pour-over is a relatively easy and quick method, though slightly messy, it does require precision when it comes to measuring coffee ground and an exact time to brew or else it could get really bitter and not as good. That’s why anyone who uses this method for brewing their coffee requires a digital scale with timer, it makes the process a lot easier.

In this post, we’re including two of the top rated coffee scales that include a built-in timer, perfect for pour-over coffee making.
