Dude... Honestly with all the accessories you got at once, you probably could have gone with a nicer machine, unless you got it at a crazy low price.
While I'm sure the Acacia is nice, I highly doubt it's 19x nicer than this guy
A bottomless portafilter sure helps, but I have this one with a spouted one, and it fits with an 8oz mug. I just have to put the mug under the portafilter, lift the mug, and slide the scale in.
I third AWS. I recently ordered one for ~$15 off Amazon and it works great. Just make sure it's a milligram scale. It'll come with a 100 gram weight too to make sure it's calibrated. You can find most of these at local headshops but will probably be a tad pricier
Here is the one I have
I have the American Weigh 100g x 0.01g Digital Scale but I was looking at the Gemeni. Based on the reviews, it looks like it could be off by a few milligrams which is no bueno if I'm trying to measure out 3mgs, so I was thinking it might not meet my needs.
I have one of these and it works like a champ.
Here's the one I use. The accuracy is reportedly +/- .02, but in my experience, the difference between 100 mg and 120 mg is pretty negligible.
$11 without the weight
Works good for me.
