    !!!SOURCED!!! - WTB Acaia Lunar scales and dosing funnel

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Looking for a used set of Acaia Lunar scales will to pay $150-$200. I can see them online for just over $300 new but hoping to find someone who is not using a set and save some cash.

    Also looking for decent brand metal dosing funnel to suit 58mm portafilter willing to pay around $30.

    I have some items for sale on another thread so willing to trade/part trade Pesado precision baskets/ BH tamper for the above if ppl are interested.

    The lunar scale is really good but the app connectivity is a gimmick so if you are buying for that Id just go for the cheaper one

    Thanks, not really planning on using the app so not big issue for me, but good to know.

    I have a set of Brewista smart scales but find them a bit flaky and in manual mode the buttons are a bit small to press when under a cup on the machine for weighing the shot as it is run. The Brewista when in the auto modes is re-taring or losing the timer sometimes in the middle of a shot. For now I will go back to manual mode on the Brewista but I find the button a bit small/fiddliy as I like to start the timer after the 8 second pre-infusion finishes on the Rocket.

    How is anyone else faring with the Brewista scales?

    that is such a blatant rip of the lunar. even the program symbols are the same.

    Yeah, from reading a few US forum reviews it is physically the same device, just a different shell. The instructions are absolutely identical with buttons/functions.

    Yes, it would be interesting to see the quality and design up-close. Now that the Lunar is on sale for around $309 it's not that far off the mark anyhow.
