We personally and professionally were highly anticipating this model grinder and it took 8 years of research to fully develop the design at Baratza. After 4 years of being in the specialty industry we replaced our pro-espresso grinder en the Baratza encore with one grinder at home. The Sette W one system for all our brew methods.
Glad to offer you this high end grinder for the home market. One thing that is very important is the lack of retention. They must have looked at the EK43 shop grinder, because quite similar the coffee falls straight down. This means no channels and tubes which can cause this retention and statics. Don't forget the weigh to grind function that makes the "W" version. The arm are connected to an weighing system for which the technology is provided by our friends at Acaia. Awesome, they've won the Beste Innovative Home Electrical innovation at the 2016 SCAA fair.
We'll let the features speak for themselves now:
The Burr system was designed in in Liechtenstein and is really interesting.
This new mechanism has the outer burr rotate and the inner burr is fixed, a truly revolutionary design. The design of this mechanism 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 3 programmable settings for dosing. These combined features offers 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 popular brewing devices (Hario, Clever, Able Kone) – a standout feature amongst all other home grinders.
Using a combination planetary gear box and a patented crown gear drive system, we achieve a 19:1 speed reduction.
Manufactured in Liechtenstein, the 40mm conical burrs grind coffee at 3.5g to 5.5g/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.
