    Mine arrived today. Can someone confirm that there should be a grub screw to secure the portafilter holder. Pic showing mine without.

    Thought so thanks. Bit more research needed for me. I set 20 grams but it consistently doses 18.4. Super fast though and nice and fluffy

    I'm very keen to hear everyone's thoughts on grind quality. I'm currently using a Kony and love the grind consistency and taste however like all the large commercial machines has a fair amount of retention. If the sette can produce a similar grind I would seriously consider one.

    Finally bought one last night, you're all to blame for talking about this grinder so much.

    The grinder has already been delivered, wow Fastway you are fast.

    It's definitely not as loud as some people make it out to be, especially for aeropress filter grind.

    I'll probably take it home to test with espresso later in the week. Let's see if my gf notices a new grinder on the coffee bench 😎

    Anyone experiencing any quality issues? Anything breaking and requiring repair/replacement?

    I know of one that smoked after about 1 or 2 weeks but he's getting a brand new one under warranty. Mine's been very good so far! Saying that I still have a mini mazzer in case of any issues

    Does anyone know if there is an on/off button on the Sette? I have just been turning it on and off at the wall.

    Held the stop button for a few seconds and that turned it off.

    Mine arrived missing the grub screw to lock the portafilter "holder". The WA distributed posted me a grub screw pretty quickly.

    Mine also arrived not getting close to espresso and I had to add a shim.

    It has also never managed to get close to dosing the full programmed dose. Even when dropped to 15 grams in a 20 gram basket. The distributed advised me how to adjust the offset to compensate. I did this tonight and now the grinder won't work at all. I get error code e02 at startup so will be on the phone again tomorrow I guess. Hopefully to organise a refund or new replacement. Not the most happy of starts for me with the new grinder!

    I added a shim to mine for Justin, as it was set around setting 8 or 9 for Aeropress. I saw a video on youtube like your problem Luke, unless I read your problem wrong.

    Interesting. Sort of like mine I guess. Mine now just won't even turn on past getting this error



    It hasn't felt right since I inboxed it. It's frozen up a few times and required a power cycle. Guess I got a Friday arvo assembly job!!

    Every time i get close to purchasing this affordable combination of quality grind and low grind retention i hear another story (or few dozen stories) like this and decide to save myself the grief. There is a quote somewhere from Baratza that they plan to do a commercial or at least prosumer grade version of this grinder over the coming year. Hopefully that one won't experience this degree of failure.

    was going to suggest turning it off and on again. Try unplugging it for a while, you never know

    Yeah I've tried. It's not even displaying the e02 code now. Just flashing a light above the play button. It happens. Will make a call tomorrow.

    Mine was getting E03 error while taring a LM group handle. It worked fine once i put the arms all the way in it worked fine.

    I was trying to replicate the Baratza video when they use the LM handle with the lip on the bottom. Don't copy it or you'll probably get the same error.

    Also what's the max weight the scale can handle? Surely it can handle all commercial portafilters.

    270 must be the prototype. 300W might be the final release

    Just received mine today, unboxed and did a few seasoning shots.
    Seems to be fine as is for my minore2.
    I am impressed by the size compared to my K3 touch.
    It may be quicker but is certainly more convenient.
    Also less mess so far.
    A cut down commercial grinder it is not and the manual confirms this ,asking you to reconsider if you intend to use it in a commercial setting.
    I will post again once I have used it a bit more.

    First post on CS! Thank you all for sharing. A great help in my decision to buy the 270W.

    Received it yesterday, worked properly from first switch on.
    Much faster than my old Sunbeam.
    After 6 or so test shots, I had to install a shim to get a fine espresso grind.
    Scale seems ok, usually within .2 of my 17gm in a 15gm VST basket.
    With fluffy grinds, I get a bit of mess at the end of filling my Rocket portafilta.
    Maybe will settle down with more use.
    Will post again after a bit of use.

    I ran into a problem of getting severe under dosing with each of my presets on the weekend. 16g dosed to 10g, 18 dosed to 11g, 20g dosed to 13g.

    Happy to find it was something to do with the scale offset programming, I changed it from around 6 back to 1.5, which now gives me a bang on dose or .1g more.

    Follow this simple guide which is from the Baratza trouble shooting page. https://www.baratza.com/wp-content/u...rogramming.pdf

    It might be a bit early but how is it behaving compared to the K3?

    I'm in the same boat with a K3 which is super solid but always seems hard to clean and a bit messy on the bench.

    Having had my 270 (not'w') running for a while I can report that retention has averaged approx 0.1-0.2 of a gram per 23 gram dose. The accumulated 0.1-0.2g grounds being retained seemingly all sit on the exit chute's attachment arms & are only easily removed by removing the whole burr assembly (which is not difficult).
    I grind the 23 grams in under 10 secs.
    I have found that, to get a pour commencing 7-8 secs after first appearance of coffee out of the portafilter following pre-infusion in my GS3, the subsequent flow lacks that languid viscosity that I yearn for. I had to set my 270 to its maximum fineness settings with both macro & micro settings to achieve a 7-8 sec initial flow.
    I am therefore trying to insert one of the spacers that are supplied to enable greater fine-ness to be achieved, following the e-manual's instructions. This is not an easy task without using metal tools to grip the exposed part of the top burr & I am waiting for a Baratza Service-person to give me some tips.
    One other comment: After grinding it is common for a solitary whole bean to be found resting on the top centre of the burr, where there is a small depression formed by the retaining bolt being just shy of the top of the burr. This could be eliminated if the bolt was slightly longer.

    My 270W is quite hit and miss into the portafilter but fairly accurate into the grounds bin so these new feet might be the answer. Hopefully Coffee Parts will know what I'm talking about.

    I've caught the pour over bug recently, what's people's experience with this for pour over? I'm using my kony-e atm, which for expresso's is fantastic in the cup, but isn't exactly meant for pour over.

    I tried playing with Baratza Sette W at MICE today, the rep demonstrating couldn't get it to work for 10minutes, so i left. It was showing error codes.
    Show special for $550, ends tomorrow.
    Not sure if its an upgrade from my Baratza Vario, which is a ripper. The Sette feels less solid.

    Unfortunately that is just soooo consistent with so many other reports about this grinder. I was originally going to be an early purchaser but gave up

    would the baratza sette 270 be a big step up from the Breville Smart Grinder 820?

    I have used the 270W a dozen or so times. Some observations below.

    Needed to be shimmed (supplied in box) to get fine enough for espresso. Easy and quick to do.

    The adjustment for the grind feels nice, with the additional micro adjustment a nice touch.

    Very fast, and also quite noisy (noise duration is obviously short). Seems like resonance is a decent portion of the noise, tried holding hopper, sides of the grinder etc but didnt notice any difference to noise. a refinement in this department would be welcome.

    The dosing is very accurate. I am doing it in two lots of 12g into a synesso double. 12 g, gentle side tap to flatten, tap to settle. 12g again tap to settle, tamp. Getting very even extractions on the naked. This in on a cafelat PF which is quite tall. With a normal PF you could probably go in one hit (currently the grinds would mound up to high and get knocked off removing the PF).

    Another bonus is no mess.

    Great little grinder. Really hope they go the distance in durability, really ticks all the boxes for home use.

    Cheers

    I wouldn't pay the extra money again IF wanting to dose into a portafilter. I'm on my second grinder and still not totally happy.

    However....... I now dose into the provided hopper, shake it and then pour into my portafilter.

    Works fine and is super accurate.

    To me the grinder promises a lot but doesn't deliver "everything".

    As an aside. I spoke with a tech from the importer when I returned my first one and he reckons they have had a fair few of them returned.

    He said they weren't as robust as the pre production models they were sent which is disappointing.

    The 270 seems enough.

    And if the price was $50-125 less then it would be more tempting given the quality dice roll. Then again that extra money is probably the slim margin that's helping cover some of the returns

    To me there still seems to be questions about reliability and quality. There are numerous reports about returns and warranty claims. Too many for my liking as a reseller.
    However next week we are getting one for the demo bench and will give a report back in three to four weeks.
    After some first hand experience we will consider if it's something we will list and cover warranty wise.
    Cheers

    1. Search google for "home barista baratza settes that die early"

    2. search google for "home barista baratza sette end user reports" and read in reverse order (ie starting around page approx 65 currently) to get the thoughts from users that have owned for a while.

    I don't spend much time here these days as there is not much I have to say given our expert company.

    So as to correct any misinformation, there have been motor failures on some Sette grinders. According to Five Senses (importer), the issues occurred with the first production run of grinders which are long in the hands of owners- including me. My 270W has been heavily used and remains fine, but I have also seen three dead ones so far from the first batch. They either fail after a couple of weeks, or they don't.

    Warranty on the grinder is covered directly by Baratza and a copy of the return form is attached.

    I view this grinder as a souped up appliance grinder (albeit a bloody good one) which is definitely not in the same class as small commercial grinders. Potential purchasers who view it as a competitor to commercial are either ill-informed or have had the wool pulled over by slick sales people.

    I would not recommend that those who are into lightly browned green beans contemplate a grinder like this as it's bound to end in heartbreak. Better to buy a small commercial grinder and some scales.

    For medium roasts, so long as it doesn't go pop, its fantastic. If it does die, it's either a dud or has been pushed beyond what it's capable of and this will be evident when Baratza do their warranty check.

    I recently purchased the 270 non weight version. I currently own a Kony which I love, however can waste a lot of beans if I am only making one or 2 coffees a through out a day. Once I dialed it in I was extremely impressed. This is one fantastic little grinder. The shots are on par taste wise with the Kony, and I would also say more fluffy and less clumpy (and faster).
    It is in no way built like the Kony, however, the Kony is not really designed for home use.
    It's still very early days, and I have only run about 500g through it, but at this stage I am seriously impressed with a grinder for under $500!

    Yes, but but that's what Baratza do !!. They release the beta version of each new model, and all the suckers ( oops sorry, I mean early adopters ) become beta testers for them. It's a great system - instead of paying people to test the product - they pay for the privilege of doing it for you.
    They have a very good reputation for customer support and spare parts supplies, but that's not surprising, they get lots of practice in thar department.

    I like the concept of this grinder and will possibly buy one, but not for a few more months at very least. When all the short term faults and some of the longer term issues have been sorted out I will consider it.

    Long story short....

    1) yes, they admit that the first batch in Europe and USA had a number of problems and there where lots of warranty claims. What a sloppy way to launch a new product!

    2) It was this batch that was slammed on Home Barista and it was this batch that was tested here by early adopters and evaluators.

    3) Baratza made a number of changes after Batch 1 including new feet and new PF mounts.

    4) The new batch/model is running well with no warranty issues.

    5) the new batch has been extensively tested, and to help re-sellers have confidence that issues are resolved, the Aus Baratza agent provides 12 months parts and labour warranty to re-sellers.

    Of course, only time will tell if Baratza have now got it right. I feel confident that they do ...and a quick declaration. I have no vested interest as I currently hold no Baratza stock.

    I personally prefer small commercial grinders but I'm now comfortable with getting a few Sette's in for people who ask for them.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers, Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I have been reading these posts about Baratza Sette since first day as I would like to upgrade from a Baratza preciso I have been running for Espresso for more than a year without any issues.

    I really wanted to change it by a Macap m2m, as I like it is small enough for my counter space and they say it is fantastic for espresso. But once I saw the Sette it turned my attention to it, especially because I can continue single dosing with small retention as the Preciso does. If I go for sette it would be the non-W version as I dont think the W version in worth the extra money (for me) The second batch maybe better but still too early I think about longevity for the Sette. I'd like to know what you think about the macap m2m compared to the Sette. I don't think I would be buying a new grinder for a while, so to me longevity is important but grind quality too. Very much appreciated.

    Pros that jump to mind are - approx 6 seconds for 20g with very accurate dosing, fluffy clump free grind, consistent grind, no mess and no grind retention. Cons are noisy grinding and questionable/unproven durability.

    Just my humble opinion.

    G'day Paul

    Thanks for the honest posts from you over a long period. Here is an "in my opinion" comparison to add some more details for CSrs.

    I finally had a chance to A-B the Sette with my two Malkonig Vario gen2s, a friends Baratza gen3 Vario and my Bo-ema RR45 (scrupulously maintained and calibrated). Compared to the Varios, the Sette is a similar noise level (Vario may be a smidge quieter, neither are annoying) and equal in terms of clumping, static, mess on the bench etc. In that sense they are about equal to live with domestically. The RR45 is a commercial beast with a 2Kg hopper and 64mm flat burrs. It is at least twice as big, probably four times the weight and seemingly ten times the noise of the other ones.

    For espresso, no contest: the Varios trounce the Sette and the RR45 equals it (until you consider grind retention - the RR45 is a shocker, think of 15g purges). For coarser grinds the Sette wipes the Varios and also (unexpectedly) the RR45. Varios: not really a surprise, in my view the Varios are really a Turkish to espresso grinder only. There is an optional set of steel burrs for the Vario for grinding coarser and they are probably needed if that is your bag.

    The Sette has the "twin peak particle spread" typical of a conical - some love that, some hate it. The Varios and the RR45s are your typical flat burr grinders with a more even "no extra peak" spread, especially noticeable at finer grinds. As you go coarser the first peak of the Sette reduces relatively. At plunger grinds the Sette's first peak is minimal. That is probably why it outperformed the RR45 at coarser grinds.

    My gen2 Varios are the Swiss made Ditting commercial modules under the bonnet and are way, way tougher than the Sette construction - and one of my Varios is touching 200Kg of use now with no apparent wear. The gen3 Vario seems to be the same in all aspects except for a really heavy metal p/f holder rather than the gen2's plastic. Take it off and they weight within a gram of each other. The Sette is definitely closer to a domestic appliance - which is fine for light use.

    Would I buy a Sette? Yep, for cold steep / drip and my modded chemical stirrer / plunger. Why: It is better than any similarly priced contender at coarser grinds. Also I can finally get rid of my RR45 Bo-ema which cannot even fit in the micro kitchen I am currently cursed with. Perhaps add that I like the look of the Sette in the kitchen ... and this from a function first guy...

    Coincidentally, the other option for coarser stuff has just dropped in my lap to test - a set of steel burrs for a Vario. Even if they work well, I cannot recommend someone buy a $700 grinder to spend more on burrs to get it to equal a $450 grinder at coarser grinds... and destroy the Vario's outstanding espresso performance into the bargain. That option has never made much sense to me.

    Remember, I don't import grinders and I don't have any exclusivity contracts, etc. Also, life would be easier for me if these weren't any good as stocking another brand means holding more stock and dealing with yet another distributer.

    Pros that jump to mind are - approx 6 seconds for 20g with very accurate dosing, fluffy clump free grind, consistent grind, no mess and no grind retention. Cons are noisy grinding and questionable/unproven durability.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Cheers, Paul

    Thanks Paul, much appreciated, really helpful. I guess without considering the other pros, is the grind from an M2M also consistent for espresso? sorry it that sound as a dumb question.

    Just putting this out there to potentially save everyone prefacing each forum post with the statements: "in my opinion" or "in my humble opinion".

    It's probably a safe general worldview that you should assume all statements made by people in this public forum - whether commercial posters or general members - are "in my opinion" posts... :-)

    Of course some of these statements are based on varying degrees of: general experience vs. specific experience to the topic, empirical evidence, research, or research of others' stated experiences.

    It's up to *you* to work out how much weight you want to put on these varying opinions before making a decision on something.

    In the end we shouldn't blame/flame others for the way we've come to our own decisions / conclusions (unless of course there's been clearly misleading statements).

    You could be one of those Indian Guru dudes that grow their toenails really long Barry, in which case your question would make perfect sense!

    As I change up grind a bit between espresso and other brew methods, I'm still feeling tempted towards the 270 (my brother loves his for a daily Brazen brew). But I find myself wanting the quiet, better duty cycles and build quality of the Eureka Atom. Perhaps I should be looking at a Mahlkonig Vario.

    Interested to see Baratza are coming out with a cheaper Sette 30 towards the end of the year (in the USA at least)... built-in stationary device holder allows the user to grind directly into the supplied grounds bin, or most of the popular brewing devices (V60, Clever, Able Kone, etc.)

    The Sette 30 is supposed to be cheaper and only has macro adjustment. See HB discussion on Sette 30
