A Note From Sagebrush's Owner
I received one of these grinders as a shop tester before they came out and loved it. Grind quality is a key for great coffee and good extraction. I think this is a game changer for home espressos. In fact, we like it so much that we use it as the primary espresso grinder for espresso drinks in our shop. It is a perfect complement to a premium coffee like what Sagebrush offers.
This grinder is drop-shipped from the manufacturer out of Oregon. We will ship a sample or two of Sagebrush Coffee from our roastery in Arizona.
The Sette Series debuts a revolutionary new grinding technology. Designed and perfected in Liechtenstein over a period of 8 years, this technology sets a new standard in simplicity, efficiency, and durability. This new mechanism has the outer burr rotate and the inner burr is fixed, a truly revolutionary design. The design of this mechanism doubles the efficiency of similarly sized grinders. Coffee passes straight through the grinder, vertically, and drops directly into the grounds bin or your portafilter.
The Sette has a macro/micro adjust for grind size, as well as 3 programmable settings for dosing. These combined features offer the user incredible repeatability. A unique, built-in, convertible device holder allows the user to grind directly into a portafilter, the supplied grounds bin, or most of the popular brewing devices. This 270Wi 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. This is a breakthrough in grinding technology! In line with Baratza’s focus on process improvement and quality, and our ongoing efforts to improve the functionality of our grinders, we have made significant improvements with the weight accuracy and repeatability of the Sette 270W. The updated grinder is called the Sette 270Wi.
What Makes The 270Wi Different:
Sette 270Wi (Weight Based Dosing)
The "i" in 270Wi stands for intelligence - the grinder now quickly calculates and predicts the stop point when you change your grind setting, beans, or dose weight. This eliminates the need to adjust the offset.
The new 270Wi maximizes its built-in Acaia high precision scale by filtering unpredicted vibrations that could affect dosing accuracy, such as door closures, footsteps, unsteady surfaces.
A "quick burst" feature allows you to add small increments of coffee to your final dose after the grinder has stopped.
In the event of a software update, it can be installed wirelessly via the integrated Bluetooth using Apple phone or tablet.
Recent versions of the Sette 270W are upward compatible to the Sette 270Wi, by purchasing and installing the new 270Wi Display panel and then updating the software via an Acaia App.
Acaia Scale — Speed & Precision
Built-in scale with ultra-fast 20ms response time and a 10th of a gram sensitivity sets the new standard for coffee grinders.
Manufactured in Liechtenstein, the 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 3.5g to 5.5 g/sec depending on the setting. These burrs can do a very uniform grind, with a distinct lack of fines across its grinding range. These conical burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years. The mechanism provides for precision burr alignment ensuring accurate grinding.
Digital Control Panel
The front mounted control panel with backlit LED display is user-friendly. Three programmable buttons allow for grind time setting within 0.1 second. Simply press the start button and the Sette automatically delivers precise dosing.
The Sette has a macro adjust of 30 steps, grinding from espresso to manual brew. A stepless micro adjust with 9 indicators, allows the user to accurately dial in a perfect espresso. The macro/micro mechanism is directly connected to the cone burr resulting in immediate and true grind adjustment.
Convertible Device Holder
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. The Sette’s grounds bin is made from an anti-static plastic, with a moulded spout for easy pouring into your preferred brewing device. The portaholder can accommodate any size of portafilter and includes an integrated hook for stability.
The hopper holds approximately 300-400g of coffee. An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans.
To maximize freshness, the Sette minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
The Sette 270W is recommended for espresso brewing.
A powerful, high torque DC motor drives the Sette. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
The Sette Series is designed with a small footprint (like our other models) that fits under standard kitchen cabinets.
The cone burr is easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
