    Hi guys,

    So I recently purchased the Sette 270w. I absolutely love it!!
    My only issue is, when using a 20g Pesado basket and grinding 20g into it, the coffee piles up quite high out of the basket and continues up into the grinder shoot. When I remove the group handle some of the coffee is knocked out thus less than the ideal amount of coffee is left in the basket. Does this make sense??

    I've found it helps to grind I two lots, ie for 20g, grind two 10g lots with knocking to portafilter inbetween grinds.

    Yep as above. My PF is quite tall (cafelat) and I dose in two hits, either 2x 10.5g or 14+7g. Grind first one, remove, tap down once to settle, grind second and its all good.

    Cheers

    I have 18,20 and 21g vst baskets so I go one size bigger. However I find the dark roasted beans have more volume compared to a medium roast.

    I have received unit back - they replaced complete scale unit. They also gave me a $60 voucher to spend on beans - that was appreciated. I have been using it for about 10 days now and it is performing very well. I have noted others saying they have to dose twice to avoid overflow - I have found that as well. Still it is super fast and easy to set up. My only quibble is the spraying of grounds - I just hate wastage! Five Senses sent me a photo of a mod they are working on with Baratza which looks like a good upgrade to the adjustable portafilter hook, which is a weak point in my opinion.

    I have a SB 6910 and the shot improvement is quite noticeable over the EM440 grinder. I just need any excuse now to upgrade 6910 to some Elit/Profitec/ECM/Expobar model. I do like the quick heat up time of the SB, that and I leave it switched on most of the time.

    Great Gordon.

    Looks like it could a good mod. Be great if the full dose could be done in one go without stop/tap/dose again that some have mentioned.

    So this piece bolts to the existing arms and provides arms from itself to rest the PF? Looks good. When is it coming out?

    Cheers

    Hi Artman,

    I have no idea if it is being incorporated to future machines, although it does look like a good idea. Five Senses sent me the pics after I was talking to them about splatter/spillage of some grounds.

    If they don't come out with something like that or improvement to the porta filter hook then I guess some home design fun would be in order!

    Overall I am very happy with grinder so far. It is damn quick, although I only have experience of the sunbeam 440 and 480 grinders. The consistency of the grind seems to be impressive to me

    Hi guys
    So I went from a Breville Dose Control Pro that didn't grind fine enough to the Eureka Atom and feel like I skipped this step
    From this huge thread I've figured
    -From my reading the scale ~~is a bit off but it is still consistent~~ Considered accurate within around 0.2g on a firm flat surface
    -People need to dose 10g twice to make 20g fit in the basket- although fluffy clump free grinds are arguably the best outcome
    -The portafilter holder sucks
    -It grinds superfast- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoxB8BiZfxg
    -Messy grind/ loud
    - 1 kg max per day (i use 16g a day so that's fine!)
    - A number of people have added shims for finer grinds (included in box)
    - Lots of DOA and errors, but people with bad experiences will post more than those with good
    - The Baratza rep said that the first batch were dodgy and did further development before releasing more
    - The longevity and durability is the only long standing question really, but we'll see, as it's only been in australia 6 months

    Should I be reconsidering? I don't think so.
    I feel as if I have gone from the cheapest burr grinder straight to commercial and missed this step which makes me sad. The Baratza is great for the price however I feel like these commercial grinders beat it in every repect, except grind retention. Which is one of the most important variables in making coffee at home.

    I have a friend who was after a new grinder, for there price range i suggested the Sette 270w and its what they got. Having had it for a couple of weeks now and had the chance to play around with it a couple of times. as much as I like it and also came close to buying one. Im glad i went with the Eureka Zenith 65E. As much as i like the grind and pretty much clump free of the Sette I still much prefer the grind i get from the Eureka. I feel it looks a little plastic like and due to that makes it vibrate a little and loud when grinding. All this said there is a considerable price difference and for some that is the deciding factor, so for something that price that doesnt clump and gives a super fast grind. I can see why one would buy one.
