Product Description

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.

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Dual-cam grind adjustment

The Baratza Vario features dual-cam grind adjustment with 230 settings. The right hand lever lets you select the type of grind you’d like; the left hand lever lets you fine-tune even further for a perfect grind.

Mahlkönig 54mm ceramic flat burrs

The Vario features Mahlkönig 54mm ceramic flat burrs, which keep the coffee cool(thereby retaining the coffee's natural flavor) by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds. And the Mahlkönig 54mm ceramic flat burrs are harder than carbon steel burrs and stay sharper longer.


Grind only the amount of coffee you want with Vario's Grind-on-Demand feature with Electronic Dosing. This eliminates stale coffee grinds common in mechanical dosing units.

Programmable digital controls with LCD display

The programmable digital controls allow you to select the style of coffee(espresso, filter, or coffee press) and the duration of grind time, putting you in control of creating your perfect shot of espresso.

Heavy Duty Metal Portaholder

Now standard with the Vario is Baratza's metal portaholder. Universally adjustable brackets allow for hands-free operation and can be used with any portafilter. Also included with the Vario is an 6.3oz plastic grinds bin.
