We've found that the Sette 30 is best used for finer grind brew methods. It is, without a doubt, the perfect grinder for home espresso machines. Plus, it's great for use on V60 or Aeropress or even drip coffee. Once you get to coarser grinds than that, it's going to struggle. Personally, I would not recommend doing a Chemex or French Press with the Sette. That's not what it's meant for.
The Sette 30 was engineered from technology used in the current Sette 270 and Sette 270W. On the Sette series of grinders, the ring burr rotates and the cone burr stays stationary. This unique setup allows the Sette to also have a straight through vertical grind path. The result is virtually zero grounds retention in the grinder.
The Sette 30 bean hopper can be closed and removed while there are beans in the hopper. This is fantastic for people who want to use multiple coffees. You could have your morning coffee in one hopper and a second hopper with some amazing decaf for your evening drink.
Yeah. Like super fast. Depending on how fine you're grinding, it will grind between 3.5 and 5.5 grams per second. Compare that to the Baratza Encore (approx 1 gram per second) and Virtuoso+ (about 2 grams per second) and you'll understand this thing is a speed demon.
Last, but definitely not least, it's from Baratza. Go ahead. Google it. Their support is the stuff legends are made of. Yeah, it's got a 1 year warranty, but with Baratza's repair program or the fact that they have parts available online, this grinder will last you literally forever.
