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, AeroPress) – a standout feature amongst all other home grinders.

Produces very fluffy grinds for espresso. Less static/mess than the Vario, but static can be minimized using the RDT method. The open design of the Sette 270 allows for minimum grind retention (0-0.2g in my experience), but makes it very loud. Grinding speed is fast. Unfortunately my Sette experiences the Adjustment Ring Drift problem, but I just hold the micro adjustment ring when grinding - not a deal breaker for me. Most importantly, grinds are consistent and dialing in for espresso is easy.
Good consistent grinds, the extra 200 for the WI version can be put towards a scale. Fluffy straight through grinder. Easy to set, and micro adjust grind settings.
For a grinder that is more tailored for entry level espresso being able to do pourover, and some basic espresso is a big plus.
Why I gave it 3 stars?
- Occasionally the machine gets pretty messy with the static generated. Because it is straight through the grinds fly straight back up onto the grinder, and everywhere else.
- Fines are a little off putting for pourover methods.
