  1. 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.
  2. Looking for a used Baratza Sette 270 or 270w. Cheers, Scott.
  3. Hello all, So I plugged my sette in. The display works correctly but when a button is pressed the burrs remain stationary. Is this a fault or is there a process required to engage the burrs? The hopper appeared to be fully attached. If this was loose however would this cause the burrs to disengage? video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGb_Pk0Z9S8 Kind regards
  4. Hi, First of all, I'm not native English speaker, please bear with me. I'm using Sette 270 with Sage Dual Temp Pro. DTP is a great little machine for light usage, highly recommend it. I bought my Sette 270 all the way back from US to Hong Kong because I can't wait . I'm now using with a AC step down transformer. Inside Unfortunately, I got a "digital" transformer at first, it is just a cheap shxt that only works with appliances with no circuitry inside, such as kettle. It will not work on most other appliances. I learn it in the hard way and blow up my Sette : But don't worry:D, I know the reason and how to fix it. It is working just fine now with a traditional step down transformer. In case of anyone that interested in the inside of a Sette, here you go: Main board: Outter burr + gear box + motor: Connection on the left is to control panel at the front, connection on the right is to the motor assembly, and the bottom one is AC from mainline: This is connect to 2 micro switch in series for safety : Question I have questions regarding to grind adjustment. Even after installing a shim, I have to dial up to 1 in order to pull a shot slow enough. Now, I installed 2 shims and dial back to 5G. Do anyone need to install 2 shims? I notice there always is a ring of coffee grind retention seating on the support column of inner burr: Do any Sette owner notice it? I'm looking at ~2 grams of retention
  5. I started another thread about the Sette and there are two others but this is a very specific question about the grind. I have the Rocky and the Sette. Both grind settings (6 for the Rocky, 11C for the Sette) for 20g of grind in a 20g VST filter. Both set for the same time on a Rancilio Silva PID of a 1.5sec pre-soak followed by 25 sec of water. Both at 222F. Both grinders with these settings get me about a 40g shot. Both taste good. BUT.... The Rocky grind feels really powdery, cakes a bit, and settles on its own (with out tapping or tamping) more than the Sette. The sette grind feels grainy (but fine grains), does not cake, and does not settle much on its own. Both finish tamping at about the same level. How can these two grinds, that feel and look so different, end up with the same 1:2 40g yield. Is it the individual grain shape or the distribution that id different? I find it odd and the engineer in me is craving an answer.
  6. Hi everyone, Looking to finally upgrade from my Iberital MC2. Ideally looking for Baratza Sette 270 or Eureka Mignon for around the £200 mark, although open to discussion depending on condition etc. Would also consider Sage Smart Grinder Pro for around the £100 mark. Please let me know if you have anything going. Thanks.
  7. 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!
  8. Hi Everyone After some thoughts if possible please. My Sette is going back so I will have £500 in my bank a/c soon. What machine next? Decent taste/grind performance in the cup, Doserless, timer preset, accurate adjustment mechanism, reliable, small(ish). Max £600, maybe £625 if I need to. I'm thinking Eureka Atom (matt black seems to be £600 inc VAT) - but any other thoughts?\ Thanks
  9. Has anyone tried fitting the optional brew burr into the Sette? If so, I'd be keen to hear experiences before I and place an order. Thanks!
  10. I've just received my Sette 270W, using an 18g preset my actual dose comes out between 14g to 19g. Is it normal to have such widely inconsistent dosing before the burrs are seasoned? Coffeehit have told me that it needs seasoned first. How long should it take to settle down and give more consistent doses ?
  11. Oh dear - my Sette 270W has now developed a fault. I thought I must be living on borrowed time after listening to all the other problems. I got mine from Coffeehit. It's under warranty obviously, but what do you think the chances are of me being able to swap it for either the non-weigh version or something else? It is about 4 months old I think. Need to talk to them today
  12. This grinder has now been in circulation a while and it seemed to be having issues early days with motors just suddenly stopping to work altogether. However, I don't seem to have heard such stories and am currently looking to upgrade and could get a new one for £265 through a friend so I'm looking to hear if anyone here has one or is familiar and how it's holding up now? Thanks
  13. Hi all, My Baratza sette arrived in the post today. When unboxing I noticed there was some kind of metal buildup on one of the burrs/blades? Is this normal? Please see attached. Many thanks in advance for your responses. Tim
  14. I'm looking for a grinder with as small a footprint as possible - I currently use a Krups one that's OK but saw the Sette 30 in a coffee shop and its pretty small. Anyone got any experience with it? TIA Tim.
  15. 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.
  16. Hi all - just joined the forum after lurking for a couple of years as upgraditis as finally struck and I'm hoping to pick your collective brains here! For the past 2 years or so I've been very happy getting to grips with a Classic (with Sylvia wand mod) paired with a Sage SmartGrinder. I'm still very much in the learning stage but I got to the point on the Classic where I could pull a pretty consistent shot and get something resembling latte art maybe 6 times out of 10. I've seen the SG get a lukewarm reception on here but for my needs so far it's been more than capable, and I like the user-friendliness & the ability to easily switch between espresso grinds and pour-over without too much fuss (which I do semi-frequently - especially when we have people over as it's tortuous trying to make multiple drinks on the Gaggia in short succession). Both are still going strong but I've been getting itchy feet for a while to move up the ladder so this week I took the plunge and yesterday took delivery of a shiny new ECM Mechanika IV Profi (early birthday present to myself - whatever I can say to justify the £££ to my wife...!!). Beautiful bit of kit, I'm absolutely delighted with it. I was hoping that the SG would keep me going for a while but to be honest, the new machine has only served to highlight its shortcomings so I think it's time to go the whole way and upgrade the grinder too. My question is what? Ideally I'd like to not spend loads more - would be hoping btw £200-400 - but that said, I'd rather spend a bit more to get something I know will keep me going for a while than settle for something cheaper that I'll only replace in a year. Does anyone have any recommendations? Was thinking maybe a Mignon or I like the look of the Sette when that comes out - would they be up to the task? Or should I be looking in the next category up from there, i.e. K5, Mini E etc? Kitchen space is a factor too - my kitchen cupboards are annoyingly low (only give me about 40cm clearance) so whilst I could squeeze it right next to the machine in the one spot where I have clearance, would prefer to keep it small.
  17. Ok, so 6 months on, no complaints whatsoever. Fast, fluffy, lovely volcano-like mound, bugger all retention. Great workflow. Ram portafilter in, press button, blink, tamp and go. Having just started faffing about with V60/Aeropress, i've found that i won't grind coarse enough for a V60. Which was surprising. I have installed both shims and espresso hits the mark at step 5.5-7 on the 1-31 scale (1 being finest). Various docs online indicate that 1 shim shifts the grind by 6 steps, so if i removed a shim, i'd be at the very end of the scale for espresso. The Aeropress went fine. If one applies enough pressure, i guess hitting any extraction time is doable. V60, i was aiming for 20g coffee, 330g water, V60-2 size in a total of 3 mins with some probably-irrelevant faffing in that time. Sette was set to step 31 - as coarse as possible. After 3 mins, i had maybe 5mm of liquid left The sheen went and it was dry at 4m10s. Now if i was aiming for that, great. I could just chuck the tablespoon of liquid and forget about it - it makes no difference, in the great big scheme of things. Maybe the recipe is off (is it a bit wild?). I guess i'm just a bit peeved that with 31 steps to play with, miracles are not delivered. At some point i'll remove the shim and see if i can get it useful at both ends. Maybe with stock (not VST) portafilter, one could grind less fine for espresso and definitely lose a shim? How many shims have others put in their 270s?

  19. WANT! http://www.baratza.com/grinder/sette-270w/ Will it be likely that we'd see it for ~£350 ($499) when it arrives in the UK? ...Probs not!
