- Sette 270
The perfect electric travel grinder
I was looking for a competent conical grinder that was compact and light for road trips, that had decent levels of adjustment from filter to espresso, and minimal grind retention. The Sette 270 seemed to fit the bill.
My daily grinder for my espresso machine is an expensive commercial conical weighing about 15kg. I did take this on a trip once and it proved rather tedious lugging it in and out of the car. We saw an Aldi grinder on special so we bought and tested that, and took it back for a refund within a few days because the results were so ...awful. After much research I bought the Sette 270 a few days before we left for a trip, did the initial set up here, knocked out some nice tasting plunger test shots, and packed it up ready to go in its original box. And I'm totally thrilled with its grinding performance ... fabulously adjustable, consistent grinding, easy to clean, and pretty quick to grind through 40g of beans in about 25s (my big conical does it in about 16s, so the Sette has a fairly decent throughput). The results were excellent, producing satisfying wake-up plunger shots each morning and again before heading out the door. We reckon it'll pay for itself quite quickly not having to fork out for 4 coffees every day we're travelling, plus we know exactly what we'll get to drink each day. The best part is that it's manufactured by a respected company with parts available locally at reasonable prices, if it ever needs servicing. So yes, it costs more up front but it won't end up as landfill in a few years like cheap grinders with no after-sales support, and that matters a lot to us. Any downsides? It's a bit louder than what I'm used to but in a hotel room who cares?

I upgraded from the common $200 models to this grinder and don't know why I didn't do it earlier or in the first place. It is fast with consistent grind with absolutely no mess. Easy to clean. It does not come with detailed instructions so refer to YouTube, plenty of advice on there.
Purchased in May 2019 for $450.00.
Ease of Use
Great coffee grinder starts from 0 for fine grind right up to 10 for coarse grinds. Very easy to use just a press of a button for timing and turning a small wheel for grind numbers. There is a container on top where you can keep your coffee ready for grinding. Expensive but well worth it.
Purchased in March 2019 at Dipacci for $448.95.

Best affordable domestic grinder ever?
Looking for an innovative, consistent and incredibly well designed grinder? Finally there is one, the Baratza Sette 270Wi that ticks all the boxes at a price acceptable to many, but I appreciate not all. I hesitated for over a year before my family all chipped in to help me get my dream grinder for Christmas!
I've had this grinder for a few weeks now. My initial impressions are that it's a unique and good looking compact grinder, with innovative features. As per many professional reviews published elsewhere, the 270Wi has had all the widely r...
Questions & Answers
Where are people buying this for $480? Seems to be over $600 everywhere.
I'm not sure Pete, I did get mine on a good sale. I very much doubt something of this quality will be a low price anywhere. Alternative Brewing has a sale on now with it just over the $600. Have a great day.
I am seeing reviews from people saying they purchased the 270Wi for $448. I've been searching everywhere but didn't find anything under $600. Where do people find these prices?
Hey, probably an error on my end...I do not have that latest model. I have the 270 and I've popped it under this umbrella. I purchased on eBay and with an eBay voucher I got it for a very good price! Extremely happy with it, I am not sure what the more expensive model does that mine doesn't....and I have used the micro adjustment with great results.
I believe the 270WI also weighs the grind, priced at around $630, -- the 270 does not weigh, priced at around $440.
Hi there! I am considering the Sette 30AP model for my Sunbeam EM7100. The price is right and I know all the important parts are the same as in your model. I don't want something with bells and whistles that I won't use, so am thinking the basic model in this range is suitable. Would you agree? I am updating from Sunbeam....:)
