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. Now standard with the Vario is Baratza's heavy duty metal portaholder first seen on their Forte series grinders for maximum stability and hands free dispensing straight into your portafilter. Also included with every Vario is an anti-static 6.3oz plastic grinds bin.
