The VARIO™ is Baratza’s entrée to the mezzo class of grinders. The mezzo class fills the niche between large professional grinders and home grinders. The VARIO’s™ small footprint, full range of grind, rapidly repeatable micro grind adjustment and quick grinding speed, places it at the top of its class.

Small on size, Big on Performance:

The VARIO™ has the performance of a large grinder without the need for all the counter space. Measuring only 5” wide and 7” deep the VARIO™ will fit on almost any counter. At only 14.5” tall, it also fits under all overhead cupboards. All functions are controlled from the front, so walls or equipment directly beside it is not a problem.

Any way you like it:

The broad range of grind (250 mm to 1200mm) and the narrow particle distribution (bi-model in espresso setting) are hallmarks of the professionalism of the VARIO™.

Fine tuning, with ease:

Macro and Micro adjustments are instantly and repeatedly achievable with the intuitive VARIO™ adjustment system. The VARIO™ has 230 distinct settings of grind to satisfy even the most demanding coffee connoisseur.

One touch is all it takes:

Three user programmable buttons allow for grind time setting within 0.1 second (about 0.2 gram). Simply press the START button, and the VARIO™ automatically delivers precise dosing.

Faster than a speeding…..

The VARIO™ grinds 1.5 grams/second at Espresso and 2.5 grams/second at Press. The speed of grind is truly Professional.

Harder than steel:

Manufactured in Germany by Mahlkönig, the VARIO’s™ 54mm Professional ceramic burrs produce accurate grinding, high throughput and remain sharp for up to twice the lifetime of the highest quality steel burrs.

A cool drive system:

The Vario™ employs a high torque DC motor and an ultra-quiet belt-drive transmission. The German timing belt provides important thermal isolation of motor and burrs, ensuring cooler coffee.
