  • Grind Settings

    Stepped: Notched, labeled settings for easy adjustability and repeatability.

    Stepless: Precision stepless adjustment allows for micro-changes to grind size.

  • Coffee and Espresso Grinder: The Vario W+ offers a full range of grind settings for pour over as well as the range for modern unimodal espresso.
  • Forte Upgrades: The new + designation to the classic Vario W design adds the metal grind chamber and adjustment levers from the commercial Baratza Forte grinder.
  • Steel Burrs: Ditting-designed 54mm Steel flat burrs offer high-precision grind quality.
  • Micro-Stepped: Macro- and micro-steps offer 220 distinct grind settings.
  • Grind By Weight: A load cell in the base of the grinder offers accurate weight-based dosing for just-right grinds at the touch of a button.
  • Programmable Dosing: The Vario W+ can save up to 3 weight preset for any brew method imaginable.
    • Pros
      • Upgraded: Baratza's stellar reputation for build quality made this grinder a great option, but with the enhanced build quality picking this grinder became even easier.
      • All Purpose: Many grinders make claims for being all purpose, but the Vario+ is one of the few to make good on that claim.
    • Cons
      • Not Espresso Optimized: The Vario W+ remains a great all purpose grinder, but due to the built in scale it cannot fit a portafilter holder. If you're looking for a primary espresso grinder that doses by weight, there are better choices.
