Baratza Sette 270Wi
Pickup from our showroom in French's Forest.
This grinder was designed using the weighing technology of Acaia, giving precise and accurate weight based dosing, with the revolutionary ability to grind by weight directly into a portafilter, a first for the home espresso enthusiast! In addition, the 270Wi comes with Bluetooth capabilities designed to monitor, log and track grind sessions, weights and settings. A tool specifically made for the Sette for use by home enthusiasts, coffee shop and the barista.
The Sette has a macro/micro adjust for grind size, as well as 3 programmable settings for dosing. These combined features offers the user incredible repeatability. A built-in convertible holder allows you to grind directly into your portafilter, the supplied grounds bin, or most of the popular brewing devices (Hario, Clever, Able Kone, Aeropress) – a standout feature amongst all other home grinders.
Very happy with the Sette 270WIBy: Ben on 25 April 2019I've owned a Breville Dual boiler 920 and the first edition smart grinder for some years now. I always suspected the grinder wasn't that great, preventing me from really easily being able to dial in my shots. Since upgrading to the Sette 270Wi I've been really pleased. No more clumping and I'm finding a much more fluffy and consistent grind that allows me to produce wonderful espressos and flat whites. The combination of the stepped major grind setting and the stepless minor grind setting is brilliant. Every day or so I need to make fine adjustments which are easy to do. I feel more confident with dialing in my shots. The scales are on the whole are great but it can have a wobbly from time to time which I can easily forgive as the beans and humidity plus temperate change. Should it under grind then a simple tap of the play button adds 0.1g each press. Mostly grinds (target 18g) are hitting between 18-18.2g which is perfect. I was slightly concerned about staying with conical burrs but they are more than fine, producing great results. The grinder is fast with minimal residual remaining in the grinder. It isn't exactly quiet though and noisier than the older smart grinder. Overall, a great purchase and one I hope others will also be very happy with. PS great service and support from the Jet Black team too - thanks!
ExcellentBy: Phil on 13 January 2019I had tried to "get away with" a lesser grinder but could never get a decent espresso. It was never fine enough or it had too many "fines" in it. The accurate weight and consistent grind of the 270Wi have been brilliant. The level of "fines" is very low and it's easy to clean up when changing blends or opening a new bag of beans, because there's very little coffee left in the chute after a run. It also has meant that there's never more than about a gram of "old" coffee in the next grind. My only niggle with it, is that the arms holding the group handle could be a little lower (say 5mm) so that the pile of coffee (I use a 20g basket) ends clear of the chute. I'm having to tap the sides of the group handle to settle it into the basket - so it's clear of the chute when I go to remove the group handle. Aside from that, it's made a massive difference to the quality of the espresso I can make. I'd give 5 stars if the group handle could be set just 5mm lower.
Good but...By: Karen Webb on 4 December 2018Probably shouldn't have bought this machine. We run a small community cafe and do have a couple of issues with it that probably wouldn't bother the home user. First is that the hopper is quite small. Smaller than the Breville grinder it replaces. Bigger issue is that we constantly have trouble positioning the arms to hold the group head. The rubber sleeves slip and move meaning we are constantly having to readjust.
Innovation at its bestBy: OREN on 4 December 2018I upgraded from a Compak K3 Touch Advanced grinder to the Baratza Sette 270Wi and it's a big step up. The grind is very even and fluffy with absolutely zero clumps. There's hardly any retention, compared to several grams with the K3. The Sette takes a fraction of the time to grind the same amount, and last but not least - its automatic scale makes it super easy to get repeatable results, down to the tenth of a gram. The only downsides are that it's noisy and build is a bit plasticky, but these are hardly deal breakers. Very highly recommended!
