Features & Functionality of the Baratza Vario Burr Grinder with Metal Portaholder

  • 54mm Ceramic Flat Burrs: These burrs stay sharper longer. Ceramic has a longer life than steel burrs and helps to keep the coffee cool by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds.
  • Grind on Demand with Electronic Dosing: Grinds only the coffee required for each shot. Eliminates the risk of stale ground coffee common in mechanical dosing units.
  • Programming: Features three user-programmable grind weight buttons.
  • Innovative Dual Cam Grind Adjustment: The right-hand lever lets you choose what type of grind. The lever on the left lets you fine tune the grind within the range selected. More than 230 grind settings available.
  • Super Quiet: Powerful motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits extended grinding time. The circuitry is equipped with an automatic reset thermal switch.
  • Metal PortaHolder: Universally adjustable brackets for any portafilter. Allows for hands-free operation.
Pros
  • Commercial-Grade - With 230 settings, you may expect the Vario to be more of a beginner's machine. Not so. This grinder has the same high-quality design features as professional grinders.
  • Precision Grind Adjustment - You'll get a precise grind with the Baratza Vario.
  • Digital Display - The clear, easy-to-read display tells you the weight value that you're grinding.
Cons
  • Too Much of a Good Thing - A score of grinding options can equal frustration when changing grinds for a new batch of beans.

How Does it Compare? The Vario Burr Grinder uses a timing system to grind while the Vario W Burr Grinder weighs the ground coffee while grinding, then stops automatically when it reaches your desired weight.
