Compared to its predecessor (Sette 270W), the new Sette 270Wi features:
- The "i" in 270Wi stands for intelligence - the grinder now quickly calculates and predicts the stop point when you change your grind setting, beans, or dose weight. This eliminates the need to adjust the offset.
- It maximizes its built-in Acaia high precision scale by filtering unpredicted vibrations that could affect dosing accuracy, such as door closures, footsteps, unsteady surfaces.
- A "quick burst" feature allows you to add small increments of coffee to your final dose after the grinder has stopped.
- In the event of a software update, it can be installed wirelessly via the integrated Bluetooth using Apple phone or tablet.

40 mm steel, conical burrs produce 3,5 – 5,5 grams of grounds with the decreased amount of fines (depending on the grind setting) per second. Producer, Etzinger company, estimated burrs’ optimal exploitation at couple of years. Cleaning is very easy because of an effortless routine of removing and installing burrs. The included AP (All Purpose) Burrs are perfect for a wide grinding range.
Sette 270W offers 30 steps of macro adjustment and a stepless micro adjustment based on 9 indicators to get even more control. Basically, we choose the grind size using macro scale and then adjust micro setting to make our recipe as excellent as it gets. A wide range of grind size options allows to brew delicious espressos as well as hand brews or pour overs like drip, aeropress or chemex.
The Sette was designed for a maximum of 2 lbs (1 kg) per day, with an espresso duty cycle of 10%. Also, a maximum of 150 grams of coffee for pour-over brewing methods can be ground at a time. There should be at least a 1-minute break between each grinding cycle.
Design and operation
The grinder is equipped with a control panel which contains 7 buttons and an LCD screen. We can easily program our dose to the nearest 0.1 g. The dose is super-accurate thanks to a precise Acaia scale, After the dose dial in, we simply push the START button and the grinder automatically starts to distribute the desired amount.
A universal holder makes another useful feature. We can fix the portafilter or one of the most popular brewing devices (v60, Clever od Able Kone) during burrs’ operation. Grinding directly into devices makes work with Sette 270W faster and more pleasurable.
The grinder itself looks modern and it is compact, with metal and plastics elements. Thanks to its dimensions, Sette 270W is able to fit any kitchen counter.
