Features & Functionality of the Baratza Vario Burr Grinder with Metal Portaholder
54mm Ceramic Flat Burrs: These burrs stay sharper longer. Ceramic has a longer life than steel burrs and helps to keep the coffee cool by limiting the amount of heat transferred from the burrs to the grinds.
Grind on Demand with Electronic Dosing: Grinds only the coffee required for each shot. Eliminates the risk of stale ground coffee common in mechanical dosing units.
Programming: Features three user-programmable grind weight buttons.
Innovative Dual Cam Grind Adjustment: The right-hand lever lets you choose what type of grind. The lever on the left lets you fine tune the grind within the range selected. More than 230 grind settings available.
Super Quiet: Powerful motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits extended grinding time. The circuitry is equipped with an automatic reset thermal switch.
Metal PortaHolder: Universally adjustable brackets for any portafilter. Allows for hands-free operation.
