The Portafilter Mode is designed to simplify the workflow of weighing coffee grounds in a portafilter. The scale automatically detects a portafilter or other vessel and tares the weight of the vessel. Remove the portafilter to add coffee grounds, then place on the scale again to measure the weight of the coffee grounds. Repeat as needed to adjust the weight. After the portafilter has been removed for 15 seconds, the scale will reset the mode to default for the next workflow.

 

Display

• In grams, the display shows [ 0.0 ] before a portafilter is placed on the scale.

• In ounces, the display shows [ 0.000 ] before a portafilter is placed on the scale.

Mode 5 - Espresso Mode

This mode is designed to aid espresso extraction. The scale automatically tares the weight of the vessel. It will then detect the start of the flow of espresso into the vessel and automatically start the timer function; the timer stops when the flow of espresso into the vessel stops.

 

Display 

• The LED display flashes [ 0.0 ] and [ 0:00 0.0 ] when measuring in grams and the timer is idle.

• The LED display flashes [ 0.000 ] and [ 0:00 0.000 ] when measuring in ounces and the timer is idle. • When the weight exceeds 999 grams, the LED display only shows the integer part (the decimal point will not be displayed). The LED display shows up to a maximum of 3000 grams. If the weight exceeds 3000 grams, the scale will display [ Maximum ].

 

Note

1. In Espresso Mode, the timer will stop when the espresso flow stops.

2. The auto-tare function is performed only when the weight exceeds two grams.

3. If you leave the scale idle for ten seconds, it will reset the timer and perform tare operation.

4. In Espresso Mode, the timer will also stop when a negative weight (i.e., removal of a cup) is detected.
