The Baratza Vario is a high-quality espresso grinder designed to perform in settings from the home kitchen to the cafe. Its large flat ceramic burrs increase consistency and decrease noise and grounds retention. A range of professional features makes this machine an intuitive tool for personal use and a valuable solution in the workplace.
The Baratza Vario coffee grinder is made for bringing out the diverse array of aromas and flavors in fine coffees. Even extraction that avoids bitterness or overwhelming acidity begins with consistent grounds, no matter what brewing method is to be used. Tuned to excel at grinding espresso, the Baratza Vario offers great results when used to prepare manual and automatic drip coffee as well. This espresso grinder features 54mm flat ceramic burrs, combining the high efficiency of a large burr set with the unrivaled longevity of ceramic material. Driving those burrs is a high-torque DC motor and specialized belt drive transmission engineered to produce less noise and heat during operation.
The Baratza Vario’s attention to detail does not end with its internal mechanics. All the machine’s controls are located front and center. Three programmable buttons allow for saved doses timed within 0.1 seconds, with a separate manual dosing option available for maximum flexibility. Ten macro adjustments target the type of coffee being prepared, while 23 micro adjustments on the other side allow fine-tuning for a total of 230 grind size settings. Both scales are clearly marked, making a setting easy to return to with no fumbling or guesswork.
Ready to be the foundation of any workflow, the Baratza Vario has a generous 8oz bean hopper and 6.3oz grounds bin as well as a portafilter holder. The burrs are easy to remove for cleaning or maintenance, and the grinder minimizes retained grounds to ensure it produces the freshest coffee.
We recommend the Baratza Vario coffee grinder for home enthusiasts and small cafes or catering services seeking a compact, lightweight espresso grinding solution that doesn’t lag on quality. This machine offers maximum control with good flexibility, and the design is straightforward, durable, and sleek.
