Bringing the best of Baratza's technical prowess to light, the Sette 270Wi combines high-quality steel Etzinger burrs, a redesigned motor mount and Acaia scale-equipped weighted 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. Improvements abound, as the 270Wi also improves on the accuracy and usability of the scale functionality—and opens it to further software updates over bluetooth.

- Accurate Weight Dosing: Auto-taring and auto-calculating offset functionality ensures your dose is consistent from drink to drink.
- Compact: The Sette 270Wi will fit almost anywhere thanks to its compact shape and narrow profile.
- Adjustable Holder Arms: Grind directly into a portafilter 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.
- More Accurate: The software improvements baked in with the new control board made our test grinder much more accurate out of the box—no cork or blue-tac needed.
- More Polish: A combination of a slower grind speed, lower tone of sound, and a true pulse button combine to make the 270wi feel much more premium than the original W.
- Still Best In Class: Seriously, the grind quality for espresso on the Sette line is astounding. And, it impresses while being smaller and more affordable than much of its competition.
- Just Espresso: We still only recommend the Sette 270Wi for espresso drinkers.
How Does it Compare?
The Sette 270Wi adds a new control board that changes grind speed (thusly sound), weight accuracy (though it sacrifices the manual offset), and a grind mode Baratza calls 'quick burst' to top off or purge your grinder.
