Overview

Bringing the best of Baratza's lineup to light, the Sette 270W combines high-quality steel burrs, a redesigned motor mount and weight-based dosing to create a grinder that is easy to dial-in, easier to clean, and easiest to keep full thanks to its bean-saving setup. Baratza's drop-through burrset lines up hopper and burrs right above your portafilter, eliminating excess buildup of grinds while also improving on grind speed over similar chute-based grinder designs.

Features and Functionality

  • Accurate Weight Dosing - Auto-taring functionality ensures your dose is consistent from drink to drink.
  • Compact - The Sette 270W will fit almost anywhere thanks to its compact shape and narrow profile.
  • Adjustable Holder Arms - Grind directly into a portafilter, pour over or the included container for less wasted coffee and easier cleanup.
  • Easy-cleaning - The drop-out burr design is easy to remove and clean without tools, and collects less fines along the way.
  • Brand New Burrs - Special-made 40mm Etzinger burrs offer consistent grinds at any level of coarseness.
  • Hopper Stopper - A flip down hopper door makes it easy to remove the hopper without scooping out beans.
Pros
  • Easy Clean - The 270W gives you direct access to the burrs without needing any tools
  • Sans Scale - Removing the need for a separate scale while brewing is a very very welcome feature. Less clutter on the countertop is key!
  • Solid Grip - The 270W's updated portafilter hook and arms offers a solid seat for almost every portafilter we've tried.
  • Pint-sized Powerhouse - The grinder's unique shape and teensy proportions make it a great choice for small kitchens.
Cons
  • Loud - The Sette is not a quiet grinder. Luckily it's fast enough to be over quickly.
  • A Little Too Fast - Using the pulse brew function to top off a portafilter or pour over is fast enough to be difficult to control.
SCG Staff Says...

The wider, updated arms on the 270W offer a very tight fit for portafilters. This design really dampens vibrations and makes for more accurate dosing for the scale. We tested a variety of portafilters with the updated portafilter hook. Rocket Espresso, La Marzocco, Crossland Coffee, Breville (54 and 58 mm) and Rancilio portafilters all fit great! La Pavoni's 51mm portafilter was a little loose, and Saeco's 53mm portafilters were a little too tall for the portafilter holder.

How Does it Compare?

The weight based dosing is both convenient and accurate. Dialed in for V60 and set at 20 grams, our test unit averaged 19.4 grams over 12 back-to-back grinds.

Tips and Tricks
  • 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.
  • When setting up your 270W for the first time, make sure to check that all rubber feet are properly seated and that the grinder sits level on your table or countertop.
  • 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.
Suitable Applications Drip Coffee, Espresso, Fine Drip / Pour Over

in terms of grind quality how does this compare to mythos 1?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2017
Best Answer: Hi! This is a completely different animal. The mythos1 is a monster commercial grinder. The Sette 270W is a home machine. I've owned the 270W since February and it's AMAZING! The grind is so fluffy--no clumps. It's a perfect espresso grinder. For my pourover, there are moderate fines, but I can deal with it. The Sette 270W is FAST. It's a bit loud, but it's so quick it really isn't a problem. Compared to my Vitamix, it's nothing... Hope this helps.

Is anyone having problems with the Grounds Bin falling off during grinding?
silversoap on Dec 26, 2016
Best Answer: I did at first, but there are a couple of things that help--first, twist the rubber covers of the arms inward so they "hug" the grounds bin as mush as possible. The more surface area of the rubber that touches the edges of the bin, the better. Second, keep the rubber clean by wiping with a damp paper towel frequently. Any coffee dust stuck to the rubber will make the bin slide off a lot easier.

Will this go course enough for french press or cold brew?
Matt K on Sep 8, 2017
Best Answer: Definitely not, the coarses you can really take the Sette line is for fine pour over like a V60

Hello, do the arms that hold the portafilter hold a 53 mm portafilter? I have a LaSpaziale machine that has a 53 mm portafilter.
A shopper on Nov 19, 2016
Best Answer: Width-wise, absolutely! As long as the portafilter is not too tall, you won't have any problems. By comparison, Saeco's pressurized portafilters are too tall to use the Sette.

Hope this helps

Great for espresso not for coarse grinds.Review by Art

It works well overall, especially for espresso shots. Unfortunately, even at the far most end of the coarse and micro scales this machine still has fine grinds. It does not really even do medium sized grinds. It might just be my unit, however the company is coming out with a new burr for this exact problem. If you like pour overs, which usually need a medium or slightly coarser grind, this is not the ideal grinder for you. Otherwise it is pretty consistent with the dosing weight as long as you leave it in one spot on a hard surface and don't mess with it too much.
It's very fast which is great. (Posted on 5/11/2017)
Finally, a great grinder at this price point!Review by bblakeky

For two years I have been limping along with a Rocky grinder. Even after replacing the burrs, it still would not provide a decent shot on my Rocket Cellini. After about a pound of beans and numerous shots, the 270W was producing shots far better than anything the Rocky ever produced. I have tried to convince myself to upgrade for two years but the price points were approaching $1000. The Baratza 270W at half that price is a godsend. (Posted on 1/4/2017)
Make sure you download the appReview by Jay

Great scale, sets up in minutes! Be sure to do the following:

1.) Download the app for iOS or Android, named "Brewmaster" by Acaia as of January 2017
2.) Use the smaller included hex key to adjust the black "upper arm" to hold your portafilter level. If it's not level, grinds will make a mess. The little bump on the bottom of that arm should sit just inside your portafilter and keep it from falling off the grinder.
3.) Use the app to set the tare weight so that the app reads "0g" when the portafilter is resting on the grinder.
4.) Watch out for dry beans! Dry beans suffer from static pretty heavily with this grinder and will make a bigger mess than regular beans.
5.) Unplugging and re-plugging the unit in does not reset the tare weight. (Posted on 1/2/2017)
