A Quick Note From Sagebrush Coffee Owner Matt Kellso
Fans of Baratza Grinders were eagerly awaiting the release of this, their highest level grinder designed for an excellent espresso grind for the home brewer. The wait is over, and the wait has been worth it! I received one of these grinders as a shop tester before they were released and loved it. Grind quality is a key for great coffee and good extraction. I think this is a game changer for home espressos. If you want to brew espresso at home like the pros, this is where you must start. It is a perfect complement to a premium coffee like what Sagebrush offers.
This grinder is drop-shipped from the manufacturer out of Oregon. We will ship a sample or two of Sagebrush Coffee from our roastery in Arizona.
About The Baratza Encore Burr Grinder
We are excited to introduce this new conical burr series that debuts a revolutionary new grinding technology. Designed and perfected in Liechtenstein over a period of 8 years, this technology sets a new standard in simplicity, efficiency, and durability. This new mechanism has the outer burr rotated and the inner burr fixed, a truly revolutionary design. The design of this device doubles the efficiency of similarly sized grinders. Coffee passes straight thru the grinder, vertically, and drops directly into the grounds bin or your portafilter.
The Sette has a macro/micro adjust for grind size, as well as three programmable settings for dosing. These combined features offer the user incredible repeatability. A built-in convertible holder allows you to grind directly into your portafilter, the supplied grounds bin, or most of the modern brewing devices (Hario, Clever, Able Kone, Aeropress) – a standout feature amongst all other home grinders.
Tech Specs For The Coffee Nerds Among Us
Manufactured in Liechtenstein, the 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 3.5g to 5.5 g/sec depending on the setting. These burrs can do a very uniform grind, with a distinct lack of fines across its grinding range. These conical burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years. The mechanism provides for precision burr alignment ensuring accurate grinding.
Digital Control Panel
The front mounted control panel with backlit LED display is user-friendly. Three programmable buttons allow for grind time setting within 0.1 second. Just press the start button, and the Sette automatically delivers precise dosing.
The Sette has a macro adjust of 30 steps, grinding from espresso to manual brew. A stepless micro adjust with nine indicators, allows the user to dial in a perfect espresso accurately. The macro/micro mechanism is directly connected to the cone burr resulting in immediate and correct grind adjustment.
Convertible Device Holder
A built-in convertible holder allows you to grind directly into your portafilter, the supplied grounds bin, or most of the popular brewing devices (Hario, Clever, Able Kone, Aeropress) – a standout feature amongst all other home grinders. The Sette’s grounds bin is made from an anti-static plastic, with a moulded spout for easy pouring into your preferred brewing device. The portaholder can accommodate any size of portafilter and includes an integrated hook for stability.
The hopper holds approximately 300-400g of coffee. An innovative bean shut off feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans.
To maximize freshness, the Sette minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
The Sette 270 is exceptional for all brewing methods, from espresso to manual brew.
A powerful, high torque DC motor drives the Sette. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
The Sette Series is designed with a small footprint (like our other models) that fits under standard kitchen cabinets.
The cone burr is easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
