New: The Orion Mini, New Products, and Events Preview

In this post, we’re excited to share with you some of our upcoming new products and event previews, including SCAJ, Barista Camp, and Access.

Orion Mini

Introducing the Orion Mini, available in Space Gray and Matte White.

Orion mini in both colors

Similar to the larger 8 inch Orion, The Orion Mini is a system that gives you precise control over your doses. Its intuitive dial interface allows you to save two different weights and operate in a fully automatic mode. With a weighing capacity of 3000 grams, the Orion Mini is precise and quick. The Orion Mini’s platform is 4 inches in diameter and loses no design or functionality in the transition. The new addition to the Acaia line-up has an accuracy level of 0.1 of a gram.

An ideal addition to any compact and busy bar setup, the Orion Mini will blend in seamlessly with your equipment and speed up any bar flow. The patent-pending auger was designed to smoothly control coffee beans without any damage.

Upcoming Events

Find the Orion Mini in both Space Gray and Matte White at FBC International’s booth over the three-day event. Our Japan sales representative Maiko will also be in attendance at the booth. 

Acaia at Access and Barista Camp

In the coming weeks, we are delighted to also be attending two Specialty Coffee Association events. We are returning as sponsors for both events. The first event will be Barista Camp, held during 10-13 September in Anavissos, Greece. Barista Camp “focuses on offering an opportunity to develop and learn as a barista, in a setting that promotes sharing ideas and experiences and being part of a wider community.”  

Barista camp Portugal class

We will also be attending Access, a two-day barista event in San Diego on 17-18 September. “Access combines hands-on workshops, research presentations, technology exploration, and industry insights. With a wide variety of educational sessions, you can create a schedule that suits your interests and the direction you want to grow your career in coffee.” At the main event, you can find our table in the Innovation Showcase area. The breaks in the schedule (Innovation Exploration) give attendees time to visit this area. Access 2018
