According to Baratza, the “i” in Sette 270Wi stands for “intelligence.” This grinder has capabilities that most at-home grinders don’t have, truly making it one of the smartest grinders on the market today.
The Sette 270Wi uses what is called “Acaia Scale” technology, which is a “grind-by-weight” scale system located within the grinder. You may have heard of this technology before, because it was first implemented by Baratza with their Sette 270W. They’ve upgraded the program for the Sette 270Wi and have fixed any imperfections that people may have experienced with the previous grinder.
The “grind-by-weight” scale has three programmable settings for your coffee grounds. Once you’ve decided on your setting, you can sit back and enjoy while the Acaia Scale does its thing! It is programmed with the ability to anticipate the correct moment to turn off, so you won’t be wasting any coffee grounds or using too much coffee in your portafilter.
The bluetooth capabilities on the Baratza Sette allow you to rest assured that the grinder will have the software updates it needs as time goes on, as long as it’s connected to one of your Apple devices.
The Sette 270Wi comes with both a macro and micro adjustment system for choosing your grind settings. There are 30 macros adjustments to choose from, ranging from espresso to drip brew. But in between these 30 settings, you’ll have the option to use what is called a “micro” adjustment, which ultimately grants you over 270 possible grinding adjustments!
If you’re concerned about the amount of coffee you’re using and preserving as many grounds as possible, you’ll be happy to learn about the Baratza 270Wi’s burr placement. Because of the innovative way in which the outer conical burr rotates around the fixed inner burr, no coffee grounds get stuck in the grinder during the process. This feature makes the Sette 270Wi almost entirely zero-waste so you’ll be able to use just the right amount of coffee each time.
The new, innovative Etzinger burr set not only prevents waste but creates a quicker, quieter grind than Baratza’s previous at-home coffee grinders. It grinds so quickly that you can actually grind anywhere from 4-6 grams of coffee per second. The durable, high-torque DC motor powers this grinder with equal precision and force to make one of the most impressive grinders in the Baratza Sette series.
Baratza Sette 270Wi Features:
Innovative Grind-by-Weight System: The “grind-by-weight” system built within the Baratza Sette 270Wi is a new way in which Baratza is making the coffee grinding process as quick and simple as possible. There is an Acaia Scale system located inside the grinder, which predicts exactly when to stop the grinder based on the programmable setting you chose and the weight of the coffee. You can program up to three dose settings at a time, and the scale will work based off of that choice.
Over 270 Grind Settings: Yes, you read that correctly. The Baratza Sette 270Wi comes with both macro and micro adjustment settings. There are 30 macro adjustment settings, all marked on the front face of the grinder. Within each setting is a “micro” adjustment that can be changed to get the most precise grind size you could ask for. Together with both the macro and micro adjustments, you’ll have about 270 different adjustments to work with.
Bluetooth Capabilities: This grinder is truly an intelligent grinder to have at home. You can set up any Apple device to the Sette 270Wi, including a phone or a tablet. That way, you can apply the newest software updates each time another one is available.
Almost Zero Coffee Waste: The Baratza 270Wi comes with Etzinger burrs, which are a fairly new innovation in the craft coffee world. Before this innovation, the conical burrs would grind against one another and crush the beans as they fell through, creating coffee grounds. With the new Etzinger burrs, one burr remains in place in the center, while another burr actually rotates around it. This means that no coffee gets stuck in the burrs and you end up avoiding any amount of coffee waste.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I’ve only had this grinder a few days, but the more I use it the more I like it. I absolutely love the weight based dosing system. The scale self adjusts and becomes more accurate as you use it. About the only p,ace that could use improvement is the firmware update app. I used the iOS version and it connected easily and ran w/o problems. It would be nice if the app only displayed useable updates for your particular grinder. The apps instructions tell users to only update the display firmware but from what I gathered from Baratza’s tech support, you do not need to update the display firmware on the wi version grinde. I’m not sure why the app shows it then, I also do not know why there is a conflict in the app’s instructions. This area should be cleared up so uses know what updates are appropriate for their grinder and what the changes are in each appropriate firmware revision.
I have no problems recommending this grinder. It’s a bit expensive but what good grinder isn’t? It’s worth it for the accurate weight based dosing system.
Dear John! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com
