Scales, Thermometers & Timers
Improve coffee brewing consistency with coffee Scales, Thermometers and Timers.
Scales: regardless of brewing method, coffee weight has a sizeable impact on the flavour of the drink. As little as two additional grams of ground coffee affects how quickly water travels through the coffee, impacting the all-important extraction time and as a result, coffee flavour. Only a set of barista scales can ensure complete coffee weight accuracy and therefore consistent quality drinks time after time. Jaguar offer numerous scales including smaller options which are ideal for machine and grinder set up, a model with a tough, resistant case to survive intact in an engineers case, and larger models for pour over coffee. Scales from Yagua, Hario and Tiamo as well as non-branded options are in stock and available to trade for next working day delivery to customers in mainland UK. Log in now for further information.
Thermometers: when making milk-based drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and flat whites, it is essential to pour the milk when it reaches the optimum temperature of between 60°C and 70°C. Too cold, and the milk won’t have the right consistency, too hot and it can boil, losing its natural sweetness and adding a bitter taste. Only an espresso thermometer ensures the barista hits the correct milk temperature with every drink. Choose from Espresso Gear, Motta, Tiamo and unbranded thermometers, including options with easy-to-read faces, milk jug clips, and label thermometers which stick directly onto milk jugs and pitchers.

Timers: get the correct extraction time by using timers. Great for machine set-up and checking brewing variables such as coffee weight. Helps to monitor extraction time throughout the day under changing external conditions including temperature. Jaguar sell a Taylor timer with memory, and one without, both can be used free standing, clipped on, or magnetised to a fridge and all have clear LCD displays. Jaguar also sell a commercial timer that counts up and down with a clear digital display and a long cord for convenience. Log in now for further information.
