Take the guesswork out of your daily grind with the Baratza 270 Grinder. A unique grind adjustment dial borrows from both stepped and stepless adjusters to get you expertly dialed-in without the time commitment or wasted beans. Supplementary features include three programmable grind doses, adjustable container/portafilter arms and a tool-free disassembly for easy cleaning and maintenance. The Sette's drop through design offers low retention and high-speed grinding in a small platform.

- Programmable Dosing: Dial in and save three grind times for unbeatably consistent single shots, double shots or drip coffee.
- Adjustable Holder Arms: Curved, rubber coated arms are designed to hold on to portafilters, containers and brew baskets alike for less mess from every grind. A newly redesigned portafilter hook offers a stable base for multiple portafilter sizes.
- Dual-adjust Settings: Stepped macro grind settings make it a cinch to get in the ballpark for espresso shots or immersion brewing. A stepless micro adjust dial then lets you get to the perfect grind consistency.
- Brand New Burrs: Baratza's brand new burr gearing inverts the classic design, rotating the outer burr instead of the inner for a more efficient set up. This new design allows for an easy-peasy drop-out disassembly that doesn't require any tools.
- Hopper Door: A fun rotating door lets you remove the hopper without spilling beans everywhere.
- So Fresh and so Clean: The surprisingly simple tool-less hopper and burr removal made it incredibly easy to brush out old grounds.
- Programming for Dummies: The three timed grind presets were intuitive enough to set before reading the manual, and the LCD screen sports a strong backlight and clear, easy to read numerals.
- Slim and Trim: At a delightfully svelte five inches across, its easy to squeeze the Sette 270 between your toaster and espresso machine or other appliances.
- Speedy: The 270 grinds incredibly quickly, we clocked an 18-gram dose in just over 5 seconds.
- Loud: Be prepared to wake up the whole house, the Sette is one of the louder home grinders we've tested.
- Speedy: The 270 grinds way fast. Topping off a dose that is close to perfect is actually a little difficult with the pulse setting.
How Does it Compare?
The Sette 270 features the same redesigned grinding technology as the 270W, but lacks the latter's weight-controlled dosing.
Tips and Tricks
- The start/pause and stop buttons double as the Sette's on and off switch. Tap the start/pause button to turn on the grinder, and press and hold the stop button to turn it off.
- Make sure to watch your dose when grinding into a portafilter. If you overdose too much, the mound of grinds in your portafilter may clog the Sette's burrs.
- The crescent-shaped portafilter hook is user adjustable! Make sure to adjust the hook to very snugly hold your portafilter
- When reinstalling the burr, make sure you are lining up the blue dial markers and twisting the burr in counter-clockwise. Holding on to the spout while seating the burr can make it a little easier.
