Crew Review: Baratza Vario-W Grinder

Baratza’s second weight-based grinder, the Vario-W, takes the original Vario’s flat ceramic burrs and macro/micro grind adjustment functionality and pairs it with weight-based calibration. Designed specifically with pour over bars in mind, this grinder can be used for any coffee prep as long as you’re cool with transferring the coffee from the weighing container to your brew apparatus. Yeah, we said it.

Watch Gail take us through how to remove and replace the burrs for cleaning, explain its programming and demonstrate the grind consistency of this cool new option.

    I am pretty sure that when the grinder is set at 17.0 grams but pauses at 16.8 before finally stopping at 17.0, that the weight of the grounds is actually 16.8 grams. When it goes back to 17.0, that is just the machine resetting itself to the original value.

      We weighed them out separately, however, and they were at the desired weight.
