The Baratza Sette 30 is a budget-friendly, entry-level espresso, suitable for basic and advanced espresso machines. Perfected in Liechtenstein over a period of 8 years, the technology used in Baratza’s Sette line sets a new standard in simplicity, efficiency, and durability. Baratza’s revolutionary design has the outer burr rotate and the inner burr is fixed. The design of this mechanism doubles the efficiency of similarly sized grinders. Coffee passes straight through the grinder and drops directly into the grounds bin or your portafilter.
The Baratza Sette 30 offers 31 macro steps of adjustment. Using AP burrs, the same design for the Sette 270/270W grinders, the Sette 30 produces an exceptional espresso grind. It also works well while grinding for manual brewing methods that require a finer grind (i.e. AeroPress and Hario V60). (Please note, this release is a shift in Baratza’s approach from their initial offering of the Sette 30 as a brew grinder-details here) The Sette 30 has a stationary device holder that allows you to remove and re-orient the arms to grind directly into the supplied grounds bin or a portafilter.
