Baratza Sette Update

Many of you met us at the Romanian AeroPress Competition a few weeks ago and got to see (and even try out) the new Baratza Sette 270.

We, as distributors of Baratza, were privileged to be given an advanced look at the new model. However, Baratza has been going through international certifications for the Sette 270 and Sette 270W since January so that they can—in full confidence, and legally—make both models available for international ordering (and thus sweet coffee making love). Additionally the Sette 270W is still going through the last stages of software design, so that they can be confident of providing the most solid model to you, the coffee drinkers of Romania (ok, and the rest of the world).

Because we teased you by letting you touch our toys, you now want one too. We understand. That’s why when we tell you that they will be only available to buy from us at (roughly) the end of September, we want to be able to tell you exactly why.

Baratza predicts that the certifications will be finished by mid June (a process that they have little-to-no control over). Once that, and the software finalizations are made for the Sette 270W, they can begin taking orders from us distributors (this will likely be the end of July). Now allowing for the time needed to build each grinder and then ship it to us (from Taiwan, where they’re assembled), they are predicting that the Sette 270 and Sette 270W models will be in our hands by the end of September (ready for us to ship right back out to you coffee geeks).

Keep in mind that these are estimates, and even estimates by really smart people (like those at Baratza), can be stretched—or shortened. We will be updating you, our adoring, over-caffeinated customer base as soon as we have updates to share with you.

And now, because we believe in being totally transparent with our customers, I’m going to go check Facebook.

Hey, like this post? Why not share it with a buddy?
