Espresso enthusiasts, meet your new shot scale. Fully waterproof and jam-packed with amazing features, the Acaia Lunar is the last shot scale you'll ever need to buy. It's time to stop throwing away lesser scales.

 

The coffee world asked for a better way to weigh their espresso, and it's finally here: Acaia's answer to the shot scale, the Lunar. The Lunar is compact, responsive, multifunctional, and perhaps most importantly, completely waterproof. This is everything we love about the Pearl, condensed into a smaller drip tray-friendly package. The Lunar is the shot scale we've all been waiting for.

Leave it to Acaia to pack a scale with all the details we need, and then tack on a few more ever-so-useful functions we could only dream of having. The Lunar has multiple function modes that include the basic weight display and timer, as well as more advanced functions that include an auto-start/auto-stop timer based on the flow of espresso into the cup, as well as auto-tare function that zeroes out your cup about one second after it is placed on the scale.

Yes, you can dump all the water you want on this bad boy - it's completely waterproof!

Every experienced barista knows a little water in the wrong place is enough to kill your average shot scale, and so the Lunar is completely waterproof. Acaia backs this up even further with a two year warranty which includes water damage protection. Inside the scale are the same high-quality internals you can expect from Acaia, including an internal battery with a 20 hour life. The scale charges fully in just a few hours using a standard mini USB charging cable (included), and includes Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity to connect it to the Acaia Coffee app and the new slimmed-down Brewmaster app.

Also included with the scale are a pair of stick-on plastic feet to protect the bottom of the Lunar if you need to move it around frequently, a 100 gram calibration weight, and a heat-proof silicone pad which can also be used as a portafilter rest to weigh out your dose.

Easily my smartest purchase yet

This scale does everything I need, time my manual pour overs with my 6 cup and soon to get 10 cup chemex, and more...gone are my days of having to start a timer either with my watch or my phone, this scale is amazing! If I owned an espresso machine I would probably appreciate and rave about it more, but I can truly say it works great for pour over.

Nice scale

I wish i would have bought this scale sooner. Fits on my La Pavoni Lever machine and works as I need it to. Love the aluminum build quality and weight of it.

Great Product‰Û_ 1 worry‰Û_ but would buy again anyway

So, my one worry is the USB (charger) connection on the back of the scale. If you plan on using on an espresso with an E61 group head, the USB connector is right in line with the pressure relief valve. I think perhaps a removable plug here would have been a nice touch‰Û_ short term, no problems‰Û_ long term‰Û_ I‰Ûªm worried. That said, EVERYTHING else about the scale is awesome! It has multiple modes of operation, I can‰Ûªt imagine brewing a shot in some way where one of them would not meet your needs. The timer works great, in manual or auto mode (by weight). The tare function works great. The touch sensitive ‰ÛÏbuttons‰Û� work perfect. The display is prefect. The size is perfect. The battery last a long time and recharges fast. It might be nicer if the entire bottom was a rubber mat vs metal with a small rubber stick-on strip. Overall, very well made, very well thought out with a worry and a nit-pick. Highly recommended. I would but it again.

absolute overkill

Simply the best on market so far. Suits almost any kind of brew method. Nice sleek design with a bunch of usabilities. The only con is that it feels like the app isn‰Ûªt as perfected as the lunar scale itself.

The best scale!

I use this scale primarily on my Linea Mini to measure my yield. It's such a relief that I don't have to worry about damaging my scales if I don't pull them out after pulling shots. I've used other scales in the past (in a commercial setting) and have died within a few months. I've had this Lunar for over 2 years and still going strong. This thing has more features than I really need or use. I generally just use the basic scale, or the scale + timer mode. I'm not a fan of the auto timer mode (timer starts once it detects the liquid), it tends to start late and/or resets mid brew, so I avoid this mode for espresso. The bluetooth feature using the app is awesome, definitely something no other company has implemented. I haven't shared my recipes in a long time with the Acaia community, but it's definitely a cool feature. Customer service is also fantastic, another reason to love both Prima and Acaia!

Acaia Lunar Scale!

What an incredible product! Makes the pearl look and seem old and dinky. Planning on buying one or two more when we get our new espresso machine!

Lunar scale does it...

This scale does everything it claims. Pricey? Yep... Although, So far very water proof and if it lasts 2 years I've already saved money compared to buying so many "disposable" non-water proof scales.

Worth Its Weight in 20 lbs of Beans!!

I admit that I was skeptical and thought that the cost of this scale was too extravagant given that it is, after all, "just a scale." But that assessment has changed. Bottom line: this scale with it's numerous features, has really resulted in consistent, excellent shots as well as minimizing movements that really add up and contribute to distraction and mistakes. This is really a terrific tool and after two weeks of using it, I don't regret the purchase price; it is well worth it.

Works perfectly

I have been using this scale for two weeks now and I don't know how I made espresso before I bought it. Now, every shot is just about perfect. I wish they would make one simple change. I use the scale in two modes: first to weigh my grounds and then on the third setting in the automatic group that starts the timer when I set the cup on the scale. I need to cycle through four settings to get from one to the other. If there was a preference that could make this easier the scale would be perfect.

The fast, precise scale the coffee industry has needed for years!

I love this scale. After having lived with it for a bit I don‰Ûªt know how I made coffee before. I‰Ûªve used other scales targeted at coffee in the past but the combination of speed, precision, water resistance, and form factor make this a barista essential. It‰Ûªs not inexpensive but the Lunar is built very well and feels like a genuinely nice product when you handle it. Highly recommended.
