Acaia’s Orion Bean Counter is a device for precision coffee-making. True to its name, the product's sole purpose is to count and weigh whole coffee beans, so that perfectly portioned bags of whole bean coffee can be assembled or measured. The machine boasts a high degree of accuracy, within 0.5 grams. The machine offers both timed and manual modes for dispensing coffee beans.

At the SCA Expo 2017, Acaia’s Orion Bean Counter was named the Best New Product in the Coffee Accessories category.

Although there are restrictions to the number of beans and the weight that the machine can currently accommodate due its size, it is suggested that future developments may include larger models for roasters.
