The latest in affordable espresso grinding from industry-leading Baratza!
The new Baratza Sette 30 AP is an exciting evolution of the home grinder, bringing more and more commercial quality features while still maintaining a domestic price. Baratza has taken what they've learned from the production of the innovative Sette 270 and made a perfect package of a low-retention, large burr, low-heat, fast grinder.

The Sette Series has, at its core, a revolutionary grinding mechanism that produces game-changing performance. Key aspects of this innovative mechanism include:
- Straight-thru vertical transports and grinding of the beans (highly efficient and results in minimal residual coffee in the system).
- Rotation of the outer ring burr (with twice the surface area of the cone burr) along with proprietary tooth geometry, produces grinding thru-put that is two to three times that of others in its class.
- Proprietary gear box (planetary + crown gear) that maximizes efficiency of torque transfer, resulting in lower power consumption and much less heat.
- Powerful DC motor for maximum starting torque and efficiency, resulting in cooler operation.
BURRS & BREWING METHODS
Manufactured by Etzinger in Liechtenstein, the Sette 30 is built with 40mm conical AP burrs, which are designed to give a grind profile that is exceptional for espresso and good for brew methods requiring a finer grind (e.g. AeroPress or V60).
The Sette 30 grinds 3.5 to 5.5 grams per second, depending on roast and grind setting. The burrs are durable, and will remain sharp for many years.
We offer a second, separate, burr assembly-the BG (Brew Grind) burr which grinds in the fine to mid-coarse range which is more suitable for filter/manual brewing (eg Automatic Brewers, Chemex) and espresso. It is available for separate purchase, from our website.
The clever design of the Sette Series burr assembly offers you, the user, the ability to exchange the cone burr in less than a minute with no tools and no recalibration. Check this video from about 30 seconds in to see how easy it is to make the switch.
DEVICE HOLDER & GROUNDS BIN
The Sette 30 has a device holder that allows you to remove and re-orient the arms to grind directly into a portafilter or into the supplied grounds bin.
The Sette’s grounds bin is made from an anti-static plastic, with a molded spout for easy pouring into your preferred brewing device. It has a usable capacity of 160g (Med Roast).
The hopper holds approximately 300-400g of coffee. An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans.
DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL
The Sette 30 has a simple front mounted control panel with easy to read backlit LED display. The user manually presets the grind time to within .1 seconds. Simply press the start button and the Sette automatically delivers precise dosing.
The Sette has a macro adjust of 30 steps, designed to give a grind profile that is exceptional for espresso and good for brew methods requiring a finer grind. The macro mechanism is directly connected to the cone burr resulting in immediate and true grind adjustment.
The Sette 30 is designed with a small footprint (like our other models) and fits under standard kitchen cabinets.
The cone burr is easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.

Great grinder for espresso. Quick and precise, if a bit noisy.
Fabulous control of the bean grind and yes, to my surprise, it really did improve the quality of and taste of my espresso... Smoother coffee with a bigger and stronger crema.
I bought this grinder as my first standalone coffee grinder, and I could not be happier with its ease of use, the speed at which it grinds, and the uniformity of the ground as well.
The only way this grinder could be any better is if it was a little quieter I still live with my parents and do shift to work so sometimes when I want a coffee I don't want to wake up the whole house but the sound mostly stays within the room which the grinders operating in. It's mostly loud if you're standing right next to it, and at absolutly manageble levels.
And the sound isn't really much of an issue because to grind for a single person or even two people will always take less than 30 seconds
Excellent service , I got my shipment 3 days after placing an order. Item was packed very well , so came without any damage. High quality product , very easy to set up and adjusted based to your espresso machine . And what the HUGE difference in taste of an espresso and latte. It worth every penny .
The Baratza Sette 270 is a "standard" in the coffee industry, but did you know you can buy the Sette 30 and then upgrade the adjustment stepper with an official component from Baratza and turn your Sette 30 into a 270? And it's actually cheaper than buying a 270! Since we're new to espresso culture, we got the Sette 30 and will upgrade it if we decide to become full coffee nerds. As it stands, the Sette 30 is incredible and looks super slick on our counter.
