BARATZA VARIO :: PROFESSIONAL CAPABILITY FOR THE HOME
Here’s the short answer on why this grinder is worth $449: It has the serious quality of a professional level espresso grinder, with precision adjustment to achieve the perfect espresso shot, yet it can switch to your favorite French press or coffee maker setting without losing your micro espresso setting. There’s no need to keep two grinders around, and no frustration in trying to remember which setting brought you that ideal espresso shot, even after the power is turned off!
The Vario is a commercial grinder with 54mm ceramic flat burrs with a throughput of 1.9 grams per second and an innovative, macro/micro grind adjustment with 230 settings. The sleek contemporary design, small foot print, and adjustability for any style of coffee also make it perfect as a home grinder.
This function is also useful for coffee makers or french presses, as you no longer have to measure with a scoop. Simply figure out how many seconds of grinding produce the desired amount, then memorize the time with one of the three buttons designated for Espresso, French Press, and Drip Maker. This timer has 0.1 second adjustable steps (0.2 grams).
The lever on the left lets you fine tune the grind within the range you’ve selected for a perfect grind. Over 230 grind settings are available.
The circuitry is equipped with an automatic reset thermal switch.
To make espresso pulling even easier, the Vario is equipped with a PortaHolder, a universally adjustable bracket for any portafilter that permits hands-free operation.

Mahlkönig 54mm Ceramic Flat Burrs.
Mahlkönig is a powerhouse in the world of professional grinders. Baratza teamed up with Mahlkönig to bring you these high quality burrs that stay sharper longer. Ceramic has a 1.5- 2.0 x longer life than steel burrs. It also serves to keep the coffee cool by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds.
Grind on Demand.
The Vario will grind only the precise amount you require for each shot directly into your espresso portafilter. This eliminates the risk of stale ground coffee common in mechanical dosing units.
