Great coffees balance sweetness, acidity and body to create the perfect cup of coffee. The Baratza Vario is a perfect example of a great grinder combining ease-of-use and a sleek appearance with a penchant for bringing out fantastic flavors in your beans.

This professional-grade grinder fits anywhere, from your kitchen to your office to your café. While sporting a small footprint, the Vario features an impressive range of capabilities, boasting 230 distinct and repeatable grind settings from fine grind for espresso to course grind for press pot.

The design is beautiful as well as functional. Vario’s intuitive macro/micro adjustments make it easy to get the grind for a perfect espresso finish. Need something a little different? With a simple slide of the lever, you can switch from espresso to other coffee styles. And it couldn’t be easier to get the perfect amount — digital timers and three user-programmable buttons make accurate one-touch dosing and repeatable grind times a snap.

The Vario’s unique 54mm ceramic flat burrs provide accurate, fast-grinding performance and remain sharp for twice as long as the best steel burrs. The high-torque DC motor and belt drive transmission mean your beans are in for a smooth, cool ride.

As always, it’s not just what’s inside that matters; the Vario’s smooth operation carries over from internal to external, with front-mounted, easy-access control units, an 8 oz. grounds coffee collection bin, and Baratza’s exclusive PortaHolder for hands-free grinding into an espresso machine portafilter.



54mm Ceramic Flat Burrs Harder than carbon steel burrs and limit heat transfer between burrs and beans during grinding.  Touted to last twice as long a steel burrs. 

Powerful Motor & Belt Driven Transmission The Vario employs a high torque DC motor and an ultra-quiet belt-drive transmission which provides important thermal isolation of motor and burrs, ensuring cooler grinding.

Fine Tuned Grind Settings The broad range of grind (250 mm to 1200mm) and the narrow particle distribution 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.

Espresso to Press Compatible Change easily between a fine espresso grind to a coarse french-press grind instantly. 

Metal Portafilter Holder & Grounds Bin design allows for grinding on demand directly into your portafilter when grinding for espresso, or simply swap the porta-holder with the included anti-static 8 oz. grounds bin for other grinds.  

Electronic Controls all located on the front of the grinder with three user programmable buttons allowing for grind time settings within 0.1 second (about 0.2 gram). Simply press the START button, and the Vario automatically delivers precise dosing.

Fast The Vario grinds 1.6 grams/second at Espresso (about 12 seconds for a double basket) and 2.2 grams/second at Press.

Size 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.
