A Quick Note From Sagebrush Coffee Owner Matt Kellso
Fans of Baratza Grinders were eagerly awaiting the release of this, their highest level grinder designed for an excellent espresso grind for the home brewer. The wait is over, and the wait has been worth it! I received one of these grinders as a shop tester before they were released and loved it. Grind quality is a key for great coffee and good extraction. I think this is a game changer for home espressos. If you want to brew espresso at home like the pros, this is where you must start. 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.
About The Baratza Encore Burr Grinder
The Sette 30 is an inexpensive grinder to get started on an espresso journey, suitable for basic and advanced espresso machines. The Sette 30 has a macro only adjustment for grind size, offering 31 steps of adjustment. This grinder incorporates the S1 burr, designed for our high end Sette 270/270W grinders, which produces an exceptional espresso grind. It can also be used for grinding for manual brewing methods that require a finer grind (for example, AeroPress, Hario V60, and most Automatic Brewers) for a very balanced flavor experience. 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 30 has a stationary device holder that allows you to remove and re-orient the arms to grind directly into the supplied grounds bin or a portafilter – a standout feature amongst all other home grinders.
Tech Specs For The Coffee Nerds Among Us
Manufactured by Etzinger in Liechtenstein, the Sette 30 is built with 40mm conical S1 burrs, which are designed to give a grind profile that is exceptional for espresso and good for brew methods requiring a finer grind (e.g. AeroPress, Hario V60, and most Automatic Brewers).
The Sette 30 grinds 3.5 to 5.5 grams per second, depending on the roast and the grind setting. The burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years.
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. Just 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 nine indicators, allows the user to dial in a perfect espresso accurately. The macro/micro mechanism is directly connected to the cone burr resulting in immediate and correct 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 shut off 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 20 is exceptional for all brewing methods, from espresso to manual brew.
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.
