Major Firmware Update

Grind-by-Weight Auto-Pulse

Adjusted Lunar Auto-Tare Function


  • Grind-by-Weight Auto-Pulse: this option provides more control over the coffee grinding process. The function enables the Orbit to pulse automatically, adding around 0.1-0.3 g, achieving the precise target weight. The default setting is “ON” and is only available in Grind-by-Weight mode.
  • Lunar Auto-Tare: in response to user feedback, we have adjusted the Lunar’s Auto-Tare function when linked to the Orbit. The Auto Tare on/off toggle has moved from the Grind-by-Weight mode to the Manual mode on the Orbit. This modification helps to prevent unwanted activation of the auto-tare function.


  • the new Lunar Auto-Tare function must be updated to the scale via the Acaia Updater app. It is currently only available on the Lunar 2021. Please see the firmware notes for the espresso scale here

Major Firmware Update

Reverse Burr Function Adjustment


  • Reverse burr function adjustment to aid in cleaning out stuck coffee grinds more easily. Y

Additional Information:

  • The reverse spin makes it easier to adjust the dial from coarse to fine, without purging. This results in more streamline switching between drip and espresso. You can assign this function to the button double click or triple click for quick access.

  • This version was part of some of the second round of Orbit Eclipse edition grinders. Unavailable in the app to update. Users should wait until 1.0.5 is available.
