New! Baratza Esatto & Vario-E
This entry was posted on May 10, 2011.
Whilst down at the Specialty Coffee Association of America event in Texas, we were able to catch up with Baratza's Kyle Anderson and asked him to walk us through two new products they will be releasing this June: The Esatto, which can be retrofit on older Maestro, Maestro Plus, Virtuoso and Preciso models, and the Vario-E grinder. Both feature the unique functionality of offering weight-based grinding.
These were developed with pour over preps in mind, so one drawback is you won't be able to grind into your portafilter directly -- you'll need to grind into the container and then transfer. Kyle explains why they designed it like this.
