    Etzinger EtzMAX

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Happened across this grinder that is in development at the moment.

    The Etzinger EtzMAX. Apparently these guys worked with Baratza on the Sette 270w.

    Looks like they are basically building what a lot of people want which is a more substantial and top end version of the same Sette 270w design. Heavy body, more reliable scales, butter group handle holder.

    Will be interesting to see how the final machine is reviewed and what the final price is.

    The Sette 270w is a great grinder that is hampered by a few flaws, mostly related to it being built to a price point.

    Well, it is "based upon profound knowledge in aeronautical engineering" so it is bound to take off.

    Sorry.

    There is a 270wi available, or just a board to upgrade the w.

    Pretty cool, but the price is insane. "€ 1500,00 - € 2100,00 net"

    For what it's worth, I got to see this in the flesh today; hit the button and ground and pulled all of one shot. It is incredibly fast, quiet, clean and seems to dose to within 0.1g. The looks are what they are - you can see for yourself and you'll either love it or hate it. The one thing that I don't like about it is that the "start" grinding button - as in the button you press every time you use it - is a tiny button, same as the buttons for changing various settings (I assume). If you have to hit that button every time you grind a shot, I think it would be much better to have that as a big button that is satisfying to pound.

    I wasn't familiar with the coffee or the espresso machine and so have no idea what the actual grind quality is like, nor did I play with the grind settings, so I actually have basically no useful information to contribute. But hopefully the above was of interest to someone.
