The Baratza Vario-W burr coffee grinder is a precision grinding solution for espresso and drip coffee. This machine produces very consistent grounds and retains very little in the grinder, resulting in a fresh and smooth cup. The weight-based dosing system is accurate to within 0.1 grams, and three programmable buttons enable repeatable, hassle-free precision grinding. A manual dosing function is also available, adding the flexibility to take on a range of tasks with no extra fuss.

At the heart of the Baratza Vario-W are a set of 54mm flat ceramic burrs driven by a high-torque DC motor and belt drive transmission. This system gives fast, smooth, cool operation with reduced noise. The ceramic burrs are ultra-durable, remaining sharp up to twice as long as traditional steel burrs, and can be easily removed for cleaning. Grind size is controlled with a set of ten macro adjustments on one side of the control panel and 23 micro adjustments opposite for a total of 230 individual settings. Dialing in your settings is straightforward, and returning to a selection is clear and easy.

Beyond the burrs, the Baratza Vario-W is designed for ease of use with an impressive feature set that makes it a dynamic addition to a home or cafe brewing setup. The large 8oz bean hopper comes standard with a stopper collar, making it quick and easy to switch varieties. Its integrated scale eliminates the need to pre-weigh beans without sacrificing the control and consistency provided by using weight-based ratios for pour-over or espresso. The clear and legible LCD and front-mounted control system put all the adjustments at your fingertips.

We love the precision of the Baratza Vario-W burr coffee grinder. It is a flexible and capable machine that both grinds and allows the user to produce a weight-controlled dose, saving time and space at home or at work. New baristas will have no trouble understanding and utilizing its multiple settings, while the experienced enthusiast has access to the precision and control necessary to really explore the flavors offered by high-quality coffee. And like the rest, this espresso grinder is also backed by the great customer service from Baratza.
