Coffee equipment manufacturer Hiroia

Hiroia was founded in 2017 in Taiwan as an innovative company producing premium coffee equipment. Hiroia is particularly innovative in that it has implemented IoT technology into all of its equipment from the start .

And what is IoT? In a nutshell, it is the principle of connecting electronic (mostly home) devices that have moving parts or any sensors in them and with each other or, for example, with your smartphone.

Hiroia is makingour lives easierby integrating IoT into our devices . At least when making coffee. So you get the best out of it - repeatedly and always in high quality. Despite all the modern gadgets, Hiroia stands ontraditional foundations, as it is a subsidiary of the world-famous Hario company , whose products certainly need no introduction.

Hiroia Samantha: automatic coffee dripper

Let's get to the actual products! First of all,I would like to introduce theHiroia Samanthacoffee machine . It is an automaticdrip coffee machine on which you can set a number of parameters crucial for the best preparation.

It is the flow rate, the volume and temperature of the water, the intervals of each water dose or several different types of flow rates and intensities. Interestingly, the Samantha filters the coffee through the familiar V60dripper placed on a classic glass teapot like the one you know from Hario.

As you can probably guess from the first lines, one of the main advantages of the Samantha is its ability to connect to a smartphone and control it with its own app. In it, you can control the whole process or search, download and share recipes. But make no mistake. If you don't want to, you don't even have to pick up your smartphone to make great coffee at the touch of a button. It's that simple!

The Samantha is suitable for virtually any coffee, including the most delicate selection.

Thewater flow can be adjusted in 15 strengths and as a special feature not usually found on drip machines - the Hiroia Samantha has a very precise scale built in for even better results when brewing your favourite coffee.

Hiroia Jimmy: the professional barista scale

Jimmy is the professional smart barista scale from Hiroia. It is suitable for espresso and filter coffee - at home or in heavy duty use. Just like the Samantha coffee machine, Jimmy connects to your smart device and custom app.

It has 3 brew modes: espresso, filter and training - the latter helps you control the speed and consistency when pouring coffee in a dripper, for example. You can store your favourite recipes in the app or simply recall them and prepare coffee according to them. Track your measurements on the scale display or on your phone.

One of Jimmy's main advantages is its removable display, which you can use the magnetic backs to attach to your coffee machine or just put somewhere where it will be easy on the eyes. At the same time, you won't have to fight for space on your coffee machine or work surface. The seven-segment LED display is very bright and you can see it well even in an over-lit room or when the sun accidentally shines on it.

The Hiroia Jimmy has its own integrated battery that lasts for about 15 hours of continuous weighing. Once the Jimmy is empty, simply recharge it via USB. The scale measures to one tenth of a gram and its capacity is a standard (and sufficient) 2 kilograms. Although it doesn't look it at first glance, Jimmy is made almost entirely of stainless steel. It is very resistant to possible impact and spills.
