Product Resource Details

Precise, commercial-quality ceramic burrs

Manufactured in Germany by MAHLKÖNIG, the VARIO-W’s ceramic burrs are of the same material and durability as the industry’s highest-quality line of commercial coffee grinders. Ceramic burrs remain sharp for up twice the lifetime of the highest quality steel burrs.

Weight-Based Grinding for extreme accuracy (and ease) in dosing

The Vario-W is a fully integrated real-time weight-based grinder. The built-in precision load cell provides accurate weighing, while grinding, to within 0.1 gram. The user needs only to select the desired gram weight of ground coffee, press START, and the grinder will automatically grind the selected weight of coffee (+/- 0.2 grams) and then stop itself.

Innovative grind adjustment system

Macro and Micro adjustments are quickly and repeatedly achievable with the intuitive VARIO-W adjustment system. The range of grind and the accuracy of the settings is truly impressive. The VARIO-W has 230 distinct settings of grind from Espresso to French Press.

Quiet drive system

The VARIO-W houses a high torque DC motor with a belt drive transmission. The precise timing belt drive provides for smooth, quiet operation and thermal disconnection of motor and burr casing. The motor is able to effortlessly handle long duty cycles. Additionally, the VARIO-W possesses an automatically re-settable thermal safety circuit that protects the motor from overheating.
