Because coffee is quite small and light it is very important to start using a precision scale which weighs in 0.1g increments. A standard kitchen scale isn't nearly as sensitive and will yield inconsistent results when you're getting really geeky in trying to perfect your brew.
This digital pocket scale is easy to use and easy to carry around with you when travelling as its about the size of the palm of your hand! We personally use this pocket scale daily to measure out our coffee.
The lid comes off and flips around which you can then dispense your coffee in.
