We not just wanted to simplify (manual) grinding by aiming for ease of use, we also wanted to further focus on the grinding part itself, more specifically the burrs - the core of each and every grinder.
etz-I: Based on our RRB-mechanism (Rotating Ring Burr) with its AS-Jig, initially introduced years ago when launching SETTE (Baratza) and etzMAX, Etzinger now sets new standards in manual grinding .. with a fresh design available in two versions (Trim & Regular), retractable crank w/ ergonomic handle, magnetically attached lid and collection cup as well as a single-piece absolute vernier scale.
Rotating hollow shafts to eliminate disturbing center mechanics ensure for your etz-I to be quickly filled and ready-for-use. Thanks to the external vernier scale (identical point of reference for all grinders), it`s really easy to adjust and to return to your setting after cleaning. Opened with a flick of the wrist (literally), swiftly cleaned and reassembled without any tools or screws, this is what etz-I is all about. Although not totally necessary but nice to have, is the retractable crank ensuring for space-saving storage thus enabling users to easily stow and pack the grinder - or to just show it off next to the coffee machine.
The etz-I has been designed for users enjoying easy, quick and hygienic handling & assembling, customers who prefer to keep it plain and simple, who want to have a shot (literally) at enjoying a decent cup of coffee even if they don`t know much about PSD, RDT or burr geometries.
The etz-U is recommend for users wishing for a completely retention-free grinder and are accustomed to manual grinding and techniques like RDT/WDT and their proper use. May also be used for spices, herbst and grains.
