Overview

Back to Top
Featured in CoffeeGeek's Holiday Gift List. Please help CoffeeGeek in raising funds for the CoffeeKids charity.

The Baratza Vario is a commercial grinder that is also perfect for the home. The 54mm ceramic flat burrs keep the coffee cool by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds. The Grind-on-Demand feature with Electronic Dosing means you grind only the coffee you require for each shot directly into your espresso portafilter, thus eliminate the risk of stale ground coffee being left behind in the dosing unit.

Housed in a sleek contemporary design, the Baratza Vario also features dual-cam grind adjustment with 230 settings, programmable digital control with LCD display, adjustable grind duration and style of coffee (espresso, filter, or coffee press), and super quiet operation. Enjoy hands-free operation with the Vario portafilter, which offers universally adjustable brackets for any portafilter.

Baratza Vario's new faceplate design.

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Dual-cam grind adjustment

The Baratza Vario features dual-cam grind adjustment with 230 settings. The right hand lever lets you select the type of grind you’d like; the left hand lever lets you fine-tune even further for a perfect grind.

Mahlkönig 54mm ceramic flat burrs

The Vario features Mahlkönig 54mm ceramic flat burrs, which keep the coffee cool(thereby retaining the coffee's natural flavor) by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds. And the Mahlkönig 54mm ceramic flat burrs are harder than carbon steel burrs and stay sharper longer.

Grind-on-Demand

Grind only the amount of coffee you want with Vario's Grind-on-Demand feature with Electronic Dosing. This eliminates stale coffee grinds common in mechanical dosing units.

Programmable digital controls with LCD display

The programmable digital controls allow you to select the style of coffee(espresso, filter, or coffee press) and the duration of grind time, putting you in control of creating your perfect shot of espresso.

Hands-free portafilter

The portaHolder's universally adjustable brackets allow for hands-free operation and can be used with any portafilter.

Additional features

The Vario also sports a quiet belt-drive operation, an 8oz bean hopper and plugs into a regular 120V outlet. Measuring 4-1/2”W x 14-1/2”H x 7-1/4”D, the Vario weighs 10 lbs.

Vario-coffee everywhere but in portafiler.

Just received my new Vario yesterday.  I love just about everything-except the fact that no matter where or how I hold the portafilter, the grounds shot backwards against the rear edge of the filter causing them to then shoot outside the grinder along the left and right side of the grinder and...

Baratza Vario inconsistent grind

I have a Vario grinder that I have had for several years. Most of the time it does okay. But, more often than I would like, the grind gets "off." My "normal" espresso grind will suddenly be too coarse or my "normal" drip grind will be too fine. I use the grinder daily for both espressor and drip...
Maggie aswered:
Heidi, thank you for your post.  It is possible-going from one grind to another on a regular basis can allow a grinder to get out of calibration, and oilier beans can contribute to the problem if you are using them.  I would probably suggest grinding enough for a few days worth of one type of... more

Cannot get shot to pull with Vario and Silvia

I have a Baratza Vario and Rancilio Silvia I just purchased from WLL, but I am having trouble coming up with the correct grind... Firstly, I am not using fresh roasted beans. I know this is not ideal but I have a huge bag of beans left over from my last espresso machine I want to start with. I...
DanielCulver aswered:
Sean, I am not personally familiar with the machines you bought, but there are common elements to getting good shots. How recently the beans have been roasted is not your biggest concern here, or even a concern. It sounds to me that you are proceeding properly, but maybe you will have quicker... more
Sean Blaes aswered:
Thanks Daniel, I am actually using some beans from Costco! They were some Kona Coffee beans, which I really liked when I was in Hawaii. :) I want to run through this bag, then I'll break open the Lavazza ones that WLL sent with the machine. I know there are mixed reviews of those, but I can't... more

Question by Jose G.

Thank you Mark, just one more. If you would to choose a grinder for the Silvia, will you paired it with the Vario or the Rocky. Thks
mjackson aswered:
Jose, i really love the Vario it will give you a better shot and more control then the Rocky. It is a great value.

Question by Jose G.

Hello Mark, have you heard of any issues regarding the electronic display. Also, do you know how often will the rubber belt be replace?
mjackson aswered:
Jose, We have used one a lot. We have had no problems. I love this grinder and it makes an ideal espresso grinder. The belt will be based on use. I would say maybe 4 years or so if not more. You cant get a better grinder at that price.

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of the arrival of Kona beans and my desire to brew it as espresso, drip and French press, I decided that it would be a great time to put a Baratza Vario to the test. Given its programmable features and ability to alternate among different grind settings, I figured...
