Along with the new Hario Scale listed right above, Hario has also designed a fantastic new Drip Station stand for their V60 brewing system.
Made of plexiglas and steel, this stand is designed to work in concert with the Hario Scale or on its own. It features something unique in most manual drip stands - a drip tray. The system works great as a home brewing station or in multiple units in a commercial environment. It fits almost any V60 brewer, including the porcelain models designed to fit on top of large carafes or cups.
This is still a brand new product, and I'm sure eventually we'll see the stand and scale sold as a single unit, but for now, at $53, this is a really good buy for a quality, well thought out product. Note, it does not come with a V60 filter holder or beaker, you will have to buy those separately.
