Grinding for espresso? Grinding for drip brewing or French press? The Baratza Vario is an excellent grinder that does both and occupies a minimal amount of real estate on your countertop. It's professional-grade but made for home use which means you can expect a lot of high quailty features in a small package. The two slider levers give you micro and macro controls which allow for fine tuning up to 230 repeatable grind settings. We like how it comes with both a "Portaholder" and and an 8oz grounds bin and noticed that the narrow, even stream of ground coffee coming from the Vario also makes dosing into a handheld portafilter a lot easier than most home espresso grinders.
-Digital timer and three user-programmable buttons for one-touch dosing and repeatable grind times
-The 54mm ceramic flat burrs remain sharp longer than the best steel burrs. They are easy to remove and clean.
-It is calibrated at the Baratza factory. It ships with a special tool for future calibrations.
-Three programmable buttons allow for grind time setting within 0.1 second (about 0.2 gram)
