Baratza makes a revolution in home and small-coffeeshop grinding! Weighing technology from Acaia® allows to set a precise and consistent dose and grind straight to the portafilter. What’s more, the grinder is fitted up with a Bluetooth-based system that helps to monitor, track and log your grind sessions. Sette 270W offers exceptionally accurate grind settings not only for espresso brewing but also for variety of different hand brew methods.
40 mm steel, conical burrs produce 3,5 – 5,5 grams of grounds with decreased amount of fines (depending on the grind setting) per second. Producer, Etzinger company, estimated burrs’ optimal exploitation at couple of years. Cleaning is very easy because of effortless routine of removing and installing burrs.
Sette 270Wi offers 30 steps of macro adjustment and a stepless micro adjustment based on 9 indicators to get even more control. Basically, we choose the grind size using macro scale and then adjust micro setting to make our recipe as excellent as it gets. A wide range of grind size options allows to brew delicious espressos as well as hand brews or pour overs like drip, aeropress or chemex.
Design and operation
The grinder is equipped with a control panel which contains 3 buttons and a LCD screen. We can easily program our dose to the nearest 0.1 g. After the dose dial in, we simply push the START button and the grinder automatically starts to distribute desired amount.
The new Sett 270Wi has the latest technology from Acaia that controls the dosing. The algorithm is self learning and can adjust the shot settings automatically after for example change of beans or coarseness settings have affected the dose. The scale can also ignore bumbs and vibrations that could affect the dosing. Also included is a burst mode, where the shot can be filled in bursts of 0,1 seconds after the shot has been ground.
The grinder itself looks modern and it is compact, with metal and plastics elements. Thanks to its dimensions, Sette 270Wi is able to fit any kitchen counter or even the tightest coffeeshop’s brew bar.
