Hello all Sette owners on this great forum I have just purchased a brand new Baratza Sette 270 (non-W).. yes - it is black Friday and I got a nice 20% rebate. This a real long waited for upgrade to my 2012 Rancilio Rocky But but but.. I am quite puzzled, because eventhough i bought it today at a local but well-renowned espresso shop, I am very afraid that the machine is not as new as promised, but some old inventory from one of the first production batches. - it has serial number 1605xx whereas it is my impression that more than half a year ago, all models W/non-W and both 110/220v version started to have serial number in the 170xxx range. I have until this date read through most of the very long Baratza Sette threads both on this and various US-forums.. once in a while someone mentions a serial number and even more seldom, the software version.... however due to various local versions it is hard to compile what to expect when buying a new Sette like I just did today. I really really wanted this grinder even though it is a grinder with a lot of problems especially on the first batches, so to give future buyers the help and structure of serial numbers / software version vs purchase dato, I would like to start out with my purchase and encourage other to add with their own model in this form Purchase date xx-month 201x / Model (W or non-W) / Serial-no (just the first four numbers) / software vers (on display when powered on) / voltage (110/220) / power cord (US, UK, EU etc) / date and version on quick-start guide And maybe a comment line with issues / repairs encountered My sette: Purchase date 24 november 2017 / Model non-W / Serial-no 1605xx / software vers 7.03 / voltage 220 / power cord EU / Quick start guide: 8/16/2016 (V5) comment: just purchased today so no issues yet. There were a little bag with two shims in the package, but those can of course have been added manually.
Hi all, I need to free up some finances to pay off our impending honeymoon so I've decided to sell the Sette 270W! This is the weight-dosed model with Acaia technology. The burrs are Etzinger. I'm also including the Sette Brew Burr in the sale, which can slot in place of the included burrs and handle a range of pour over and brewed methods too. You can store three programmed doses as well as dose manually. The position of the burrs means there's a very low retention rate, and the scales have always been very accurate for me - pretty much within 0.1 - 0.2g. Other than a minor superficial crack in the cover of the clip that holds the portafilter in place (see pics), the grinder is in great condition and has probably had less than 5kg of beans through it.[TABLE=width: 1228, align: center] [TR] [TD]The grinder will be sent in original packaging with all accessories - grounds bin, power lead, shims, allen keys, etc. Please note, the machine does not have a warranty.[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] As per forum rules I should disclose that this is listed on eBay. I am asking £350 delivered, which reflects a reduction in the eBay price to account for savings in fees and a friendly forum deal!
Just got my new Production Sette today. Some initial impressions: 1. Its looks really sharp 2. It grinds fast 3. It grinds clean. 20.0g of beans give you 20.0g of grind. Really amazing for us as we want to switch back and forth between Caff and decaf and I cannot tolerate caff so this will work 4. It recommends a setting of 5E for espresso. With my Rancillio machine I got ZERO coffee from that. Lots of experimenting got me to about 11D for a 42gm expression from 20g of coffee in a 20g VST basket. And it made a really good latte. 5. I tried it a second time with a finer adjustment of 11B and got 43g. I should have gotten 40 or 41g. But I think the grind blades have to wear in some so this progression of having to set finer grinds each time may go on for a bit. In the instructions they say that after a few pounds of coffee I will need to put a shim in the unit. So that is weird. I will keep monitoring my grind settings to see how far this goes...... maybe down to the originally recommended 5E???? We will see.
