Baratza Vario-W Coffee Grinder
The Vario-W is a fully integrated weight-based grinder. Baratza's groundbreaking Vario-W uses real-time weight-based grinding with a built-in electronic scale. Set the weight you want, the Vario-W does the rest, weighing the ground coffee to within +/- 0.2 g, while grinding, and stopping automatically.
It has all the features of the Vario including small footprint, macro/micro adjustment, 54mm ceramic burrs, broad range of grind, but uses a weight-based dosing approach rather than a time based approach.
The Vario-W grinds 1.5 g /sec at espresso and 2.5 g /sec at Press.
The Vario-W uses an easy and intuitive operation panel that includes three programmable dosage buttons, and a digital LCD window which displays the weight value.
There are many benefits that this grinder offers, in both a home and retail environment.
- No more need to manually pre-weigh your beans. The Vario-W weighs the ground coffee then automatically stops the grinder. Ideally suited to about 50-60 cups of coffee a day (about 2 lbs of coffee).
- Inexpensive way to reduce labor time and increase accuracy
- Set up a grinder for each coffee you offer and program in three weights (e.g.#1 chemex, #2 pour-over, #3 siphon).
- You could have two to three Vario-W solutions for about the same cost as a commercial grinder.
