We understand the need for a superior grind that matches the quality, flavor, and roast of your finest beans. Our grinders support an extensive range of brew methods.
Baratza designs the grinders in Seattle. They are built in Taiwan, with precision burrs from Europe, and distributed through an ever expanding worldwide network.
Never happy with the status quo, Baratza unceasingly advances the design and functionality of our products. Our innovations include:a macro/micro grind adjust system to dial in the perfect grind, a Portaholder to grind hands-free into a portafilter, or the grind by weight system.
To a coffee professional, there are few tools as important as a grinder. The grinder is the tuning fork for the extraction. Baratza has raised the bar in not only manufacturing excellent grinders, but doing so on a scale and at a cost that brings excellence to a larger group of people and companies.
They are bridging the gap between the Coffee Professionals and the Coffee Enthusiasts. I see Baratza grinders in homes, shops, labs, and travel kits. Being the Director of Education at Café Imports means that I need a grinder that I can rely on, is efficient, grinds extraordinarily well, travels easy, and has a great team of people with excellent customer service in case there is ever an issue. Baratza has provided me with this.
