Baratza Vario W+
Baratza’s groundbreaking Vario W+ is a fully integrated real-time weight-based grinder. Expect accurate doses to the tenth of a gram whether you’re grinding a precision dose for that morning espresso shot, making yourself a pourover, or setting up a big batch of cold brew for tomorrow. Saving three presets for different brew methods is easy with the newly updated high-visibility backlit LCD and modernized user interface. With robust internals, hundreds of steps of adjustment, and an accurate integrated scale, the Vario W+ is the key to unlocking repeatable, precision grind quality at home. In other words, your grinder does all the hard work, so all you have to do is pick a weight and hit go
This professional-grade grinder fits anywhere, from your kitchen to your office to your café. The intuitive macro/micro adjustments offer 220 distinct and repeatable settings for any style of coffee. The Vario W+’s unique 54mm steel flat burrs provide accurate, fast-grinding (averaging 2 g/sec) performance. The hightorque DC motor and belt drive transmission mean your beans are in for a smooth, cool ride.
BURRS The steel burrs of the Vario W+ are dedicated to grinding for all brew methods including espresso through manual brew and beyond. They have been designed to enhance the flavor in the cup with a broad range of grind range (230 microns to 1150 microns) and a narrow particle distribution (lack of fines), the hallmarks of the superiority with the Vario Series steel burrs.
DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL The front-mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. Three programmable buttons allow the user to program in the desired weight (+/- 0.1). Simply press the START button and the Vario W+ automatically delivers precise dosing.
GRIND ADJUSTMENT The Vario W+ offers macro and micro adjust for fine tuning with ease. The macro adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro adjust arm further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 22 distinct settings. These steps enable you to dial in the exact grind for the perfect shot.
GRINDS LEFT IN GRINDER To maximize freshness, the Vario W+ minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
BREWING METHODS The Vario W+ is exceptional for espresso and manual brewing methods. When grinding for espresso it is recommended to keep coffee in the hopper; we do not recommend singledosing for espresso though single-dosing is fine for all other brew methods with grind sizes above the espresso range!
MOTOR A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
HOPPER The hopper holds approximately 300g of coffee. An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans. Bean “waste” (below the stopper) averages a surprisingly low 10g, once the hopper has been shut off (all weights are bean density dependent).
CALIBRATION The Vario W+ is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Vario W+ burrs can be easily calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.
CLEANING The included burr removal tool makes it easy to access the grind chamber and tidy up under the hood.
