The New Baratza Vario is a commercial grinder with 54 mm ceramic flat burrs and a throughput of 1.6 - 2.2 grams per second as well as an innovative, macro/micro grind adjustment with 230 settings. Want to switch from pour-over to espresso? No problem. With a simple slide of the adjustment lever changing up your brew method is simple. It also now includes both the metal removable portaholder as well as the standard grounds bin. The sleek contemporary design, small footprint, and the ability to be adjusted for any style of coffee also makes it perfect as a home, office or cafe grinder.
The Vario’s 54 mm professional ceramic flat burrs produce accurate grinding, high throughput and remain sharp for twice as long as the highest quality steel burrs. The Vario grinds 1.6 grams/second at Espresso and 2.2 grams/second at Press. The broad range of grind (230 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Vario burrs.
DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL
The front mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. Three programmable buttons allow for grind time setting within 0.1 second (about 0.2 gram). Simply press the START button and the Vario automatically delivers precise dosing.
The Vario offers macro and micro adjust for fine tuning with ease. The macro adjust moves from espresso to press pot in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro adjust arm further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 20 distinct settings. These steps enable you to dial in the exact grind for the perfect shot.
GRINDS LEFT IN GRINDER
To maximize freshness, the Vario minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
The Vario is exceptional for espresso and manual brewing methods.
A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
The Vario is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Vario burrs can be easily calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.
PORTAHOLDER & GROUNDS BIN
The Vario comes standard with a heavy-duty Metal PortaHolder and a regular 180g grounds bin.
Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
This is an almost commercial grinder is very precise, easy to adjust timers to fulfil your needs. Once you un box it you read a basic instructions and ready for your first grinding. But not everything is so easy there’s no instruction on how to calibrate it before first use even though it came with calibration tools, is a must. I went through couple of forum and the consensus is to use as starting point for calibration 2Q. Once I did that the particle size and texture is as desire, is a really very good product.
