Teri KStaff: Unfortunately no, the Forte portafilter holder is not compatible with the Vario, as the height and underside of the Forte is a different fit. Jan 13, 2014

Teri KStaff: I see that and they must have really pushed it in place to allow for it to fit! I tried again here in the showroom and I would still not recommend the Forte Portaholder for the Vario, as the pieces really scrape against each other and the fit is very tight. This also makes it very difficult to remove the portafilter after you are done grinding. Jun 23, 2014

This metal portaholder is a nice upgrade to the Vario. I had already abandoned using the stock portaholder because of crazy flying grounds with some roasts. Instead I made a little dosing funnel from a Tupperware cup which worked great. But I liked the idea and looks of the Forte component. And I missed the convenience of hanging my portafilter at the grinder while doing something else. This thing is a weighty piece of cast metal that matches well the finish of the metal elements on the Vario. It has a firm metal wire for bracket padded in soft plastic that is adjustable in height to hold a portafilter snug to the integrated funnel chute. It fits my 58mm Breville Dual Boiler p.f. very well. I get a slight bit of stray grounds in contrast to zero with my homemade dosing aid, but this kit is much preferable and way less ghetto, as my son termed it.
One thing to note: it is a tight fit installing. At first I was afraid it would not work, that my chamber was too small to accommodate it. But, persevere. It is exactly the right size and designed to look like it belonged there from the beginning. Nice going, Baratza. Seattle Coffee Gear had the lowest price around, and actually seemed to be the only place where it was available except through Baratza at the time I looked. Thanks!
