Baratza Esatto Grinder Accessory - $149
Posted by Andrew McKnight, 8:55pm Permalink to this blog entry
Baratza Esatto

The ultimate upgrade for a wide lineup of Baratza grinders, including the Maestro Plus, the Encore, the Virtuoso, and the Preciso models. What is it?

The Esatto attachment converts your existing Baratza grinder into a very accurate weight based dosing grinder, complete with a new bin to use. You can dial in up to 3 presets, or manually choose the weight you want to grind. Fill the hopper up, pick your grind weight and press one button. The grinder will accurately grind the amount you set, in .1g increments and automatically stop.

In our testing, we found the Esatto to be accurate within .5g under most circumstances. This is fantastic for moka, drip, siphon, pourover, and press pot - you really don't need anything more accurate than that. When grinding for espresso, we've found the finer grind (which means slower grinding time) brings the accuracy down to about .3 grams, which is also extremely good for most espresso situations.

A very worthy upgrade to your Baratza grinder, and a definite choice gift for a true CoffeeGeek. And it's $20 cheaper this year than it was last year!
