ShaneAncefsky Thank you for the question. I do not run into this one often. The Vario will do a Turkish grind. You might need to calibrate the grinder to get what you are looking for. Although with the experience I've had you shouldn't need to. You may hear the burrs touch, which is ok. This is just the outer edges of the burrs touching and not the actual cutting surface. With all that being said, you should be very happy with the grinding ability of this machine.

The specs say it's portafilter compatible, but from the picture I don't see how it can grind directly in the portafilter... Can you please confirm that, just like the regular Baratza Vario, we can place the portafilter underneath the chute without having to first grind into that plastic container, and then pour the coffee into the portafilter? If this is the case, can you please also let me know how tall the grinder is?
Thanks!

mjackson ♦ Roberto,
With the Vario W you can only grind into the container. That is how you get the exact weight. You cant grind directly into the portafilter. You can do it this way with the regular Vario. The grinder is 14.5 inches tall.
