Baratza Vario Metal Burr Upgrade | Tutorial Video

Posted on December 6, 2012 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith There have been 0 comments

One of our favorite all-around coffee grinders, the Baratza Vario, is becoming very popular for both home users as an espresso grinder and coffee bars that use it as a pour-over grinder. (We use the Vario in our Lab as our cupping grinder). Compared to other grinders on the market the stock ceramic Mahlkönig burrs in the Vario (and Vario-W) hold there own in the medium-coarse grind settings and will satisfy most users. For those more finicky, Baratza has released a steel burr set designed to minimize the smaller fine particles that are produced during the grinding process. The below video tutorial shows how to install the new steel burrs.

 

 

A few things to note.  The steel burrs are not for espresso use.  If you swap to the steel burrs, you are going to limit your grinder to medium/fine to coarse grind settings.

Baratza made a burr removal tool that makes the change out really easy.  These burrs can be removed without it, but can be quite difficult.
