"Over the years, our quality team has gathered feedback from our engaged community of enthusiasts and professionals. In response, we’ve taken an already popular design and packed it with features that provide the commercial-grade grind quality they’ve come to expect at a café,” said Kyle Anderson, co-founder and lead product designer for Baratza.
These feature improvements include a high-visibility backlit LCD with an improved user interface, a durable all-metal grind chamber, a fortified adjustment system, LED barista lights to monitor output, and two color ways: all-white and metal-and-black.
The Multi-Purpose Master for Every Coffee Journey
We LOVE that we still get emails from you with photos of your Varios that are still running even after nearly 12 years of operation! But as the demands of specialty coffee require more and more precision and durability, we’ve decided to make these improvements to further future-proof the Vario+ series with the hopes that it will allow for additional decades of delicious coffee. By improving on the foundation of our innovative macro/micro adjustment system, we think we’ve created the most versatile, convenient, and feature-rich home grinder for anything from the finest grinds for espresso to consistently coarse grounds for French Press–and everything in between!
Sustainability: How Baratza Fights Planned Obsolescence & Improving Packaging
We design our grinders to be user-serviceable with readily available replacement parts and guides. Our knowledgeable support and repair teams help you keep their grinders out of the landfill and grinding fresh coffee for years. Each step from seed to cup depends on the health of the planet.
