Overview

Pulling a good shot of espresso takes close attention to details, and control over all the different variables. The Open Box Baratza Vario-W seeks to simplify the espresso brewing experience by eliminating the weight variable, with easily selectable and adjustable program settings to keep the grind process consistent from one shot to the next. Coupled with heat-resistant flat burrs, and more than 200 macro and micro-adjust grind settings– this Open Box Vario-W makes it easy to dial in or swap between brew methods.

Features & Functionality of the Baratza Vario-W Burr Grinder - Open Box

  • 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.
  • Shut-Off Hopper: The newest version of the Vario-W (model # 986) now includes a shut-off hopper for convenient coffee bean switching.
  • Weight-Based: Set the weight of your desired ground coffee to more or less than 0.2g and the Vario-W will weigh the ground coffee while grinding, then stop automatically when it reaches your desired weight.
  • Easy-to-Read: Digital LCD window shows the weight value that is being ground, so you won't need to worry about pre-weighing your beans any longer.

  • Grind on Demand with Electronic Dosing: Grinds only the coffee you require 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 DC motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits extended grinding time. The circuitry is equipped with an automatic reset thermal switch.
Pros
  • Commercial-Grade - With 230 settings, you may expect this Open Vario-W 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 Open Box Baratza Vario-W.
  • Digital Display - The clear, easy-to-read display tells you the weight value that you're grinding.
Cons
  • Too Much Goodness - A score of grinding options can equal frustration when changing grinds for a new batch of beans.
How Does it Compare?

The Vario-W Open Box is accurate, consistent, and has 230 grind options versus other models. The grind is from 230-1150 microns.
