My wife hates the sound from our Baratza Sette 270wi……My Baratza Encore is loud. They're kind of known for it but it's just two dogs and me down there at 0630hrs. and the coffee is worth the noise. Besides, my hearing isn't the best from my years as a cop and surfing NJ in the winter most of my life(Surfer's Ear...it's a condition), so a loud coffee grinder, well, it's not as loud to me.
Until she tastes the lattes that are made with the beans that are ground in it.
