The Vario is Baratza’s mid-level grinder, filling the niche between large, professional grinders and home machines. Its small footprint, full range of grind, rapidly repeatable micro grind adjustment and quick grinding speed places it at the top of its class.
Small Size, Big Performance
Vario performs like a large grinder, without needing a lot of counter space. At only 5" wide, 7" deep and 14.5" tall, it fits on almost any counter and under overhead cabinets. Everything is controlled from the front so walls and other kitchen equipment that might be directly beside it are no problem.
Any Way You Like It
The broad range of grind (250 mm to 1,200mm) and the narrow particle distribution (bi-modal in espresso setting) are hallmarks of the professionalism of the Vario.
Easy To Fine Tune
Macro and Micro adjustments are instantly and repeatedly achievable with the intuitive Vario adjustment system. The Vario has 230 distinct settings of grind to satisfy even the most demanding coffee connoisseur.
One Touch Operation
Three user 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.
Vario grinds 1.5 grams/second at Espresso and 2.5 grams/second at Press. The speed of grind is truly professional.
Harder Than Steel
Manufactured in Germany, Vario's 54mm professional ceramic burrs produce accurate grinding, high throughut and will stay sharp for up to twice as long as the highest quality steel burrs.
Vario uses a high torque DC motor and an ultra-quiet belt-drive transmission. The German timing belt provides important thermal isolation of motor and burrs, which ensures cooler coffee (a very good thing!)
Baratza's exclusive PortaHolder lets you grind directly into any espresso portafilter.
