BARATZA VARIO-W COFFEE GRINDER
The Baratza Vario-W burr grinder offers professional quality grinds with professional features. The Vario-W is virtually identical to the Vario model, but instead of time based grinding this model offers extremely accurate real-time weight-based grinding that auto-stops at the desired weight. This grinder will accommodate anyone using brew methods from espresso, pour over to French press.
NOTE: This model does not come with a portafilter holder.

WHAT COMES IN THE BOX
The Vario-Series 54mm professional ceramic flat burrs produce accurate grinding, high throughput and remain sharp twice as long as the highest quality steel burrs. The Vario Series grinds 1.6 grams/second for espresso and 2.2 grams/second for Press. The broad range of grind (230 microns to 1150 microns) and the bi-modal particle distribution (presence of calculated fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Series burrs.
DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL
The front-mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. Three programmable buttons allow the user to program in the desired weight (+/- 0.1). Simply press the START button and the Vario-W automatically delivers precise dosing.
The Vario-W offers macro and micro adjust for fine tuning with ease. The macro adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro adjust arm further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 20 distinct settings. These steps enable you to dial in the exact grind for the perfect shot.
GRINDS LEFT IN GRINDER
To maximize freshness, the Vario-W minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
The Vario-W is exceptional for espresso and manual brewing methods.
A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
The hopper holds approximately 300g of coffee. An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans. Bean “waste” (below the stopper) averages a surprisingly low 10g, once the hopper has been shut off (all weights are bean density dependent).
The Vario-W is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Vario-W burrs can be easily calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.
Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
