Overview

This commercial-grade Baratza Vario Burr Grinder with metal portaholder and LED display features an advanced panel display, 54mm ceramic flat burrs, a throughput of 1.6-2.2 grams per second and an innovative macro/micro grind adjustment with 230 settings. The Vario and the Vario-W are virtually identical in design and capabilities: small footprint, macro/micro adjustment, 54mm ceramic burrs and a broad range of grinds.

Features
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Programming - Features three user-programmable grind weight buttons.
  • 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.
  • Tips and Tricks
    Remember to have the grinder running when you change the grind settings.
