Perhaps one of the greatest revolutions in the coffee space in the last decade has been the greater importance placed on the role of the scale. Many of us can’t imagine brewing without a scale today; they allow for precision in measuring the quantity of coffee and water used, the ability to repeat our favourite recipes with consistent results and an insight into our skill with pouring kettles. Since the early 2010s, the niche for high-quality coffee scales has exploded. Felicita has become a major player, making some of our favourite products on the market. The Parallel is no exception.
About the Felicita Parallel Smart Coffee Scale
The Felicita Parallel comes loaded with the usual battery of coffee-related features you’d expect of a modern coffee scale, as well as a bevvy of innovative smart features. In the first department, the Parallel ticks all the boxes you’d expect of it. Heat-resistant rubber pad? Check. Water-resistant build? Check. Precision of up to 0.1 gram? Check. Capacity of up to 2000 grams? Check. Built-in timer, beautiful modern design and USB-rechargeable battery? Check, check and check.
Where the Parallel shines is in its emphasis on smart features. Automatic tare, start and stop functionality make for a more convenient brewing experience. Built-in Bluetooth support allows it to be paired with a smart device running the company’s app, and doing so unlocks a selection of more sophisticated features. The app receives information from the scale in real-time, allowing it to not only mirror the information on the scale but collect data over time. It can do the maths on your pouring technique, calculating grams poured per second over the duration of your brewing session. This information is particularly useful to those trying to master the pour-over. The Felicita app can construct graphs of such data for handy visualisation, and save the data it records for you to reuse as recipes for future brews.
The Felicita Parallel is a compelling package, especially if you’re not already taking advantage of the benefits of a scale at your brewing station. Ideal as an upgrade for an existing obsessive home barista or as a gift to a budding coffee enthusiast, the Felicita Parallel is sure to help make better coffee.
The Felicita Parallel scale has a large platform suitable for larger brewers. If you're looking for something more compact, check out the Felicita Incline, or for espresso, have a look at the Felicita ARC.
