Features & Specifications
At the heart of the Vario+ are durable 54mm ceramic flat burrs from commercial burr manufacturer, Ditting. The burrs are encased in an upgraded metal grind chamber to improve consistency, from cup to cup.
Digital Control Panel
The front-mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. The Vario+ allows you to save up to 3 time-based presets for your automatic dosing so you can maximize your workflow.
Offering 220 steps of macro and micro grind settings optimized with an espresso calibration that can be customized, this grinder keeps its original multipurpose design, while allowing you to further hone in that elusive god shot.
A 300g hopper with the ability to remove it from the grinder, while the beans are still in it, enabling easier changeover of beans!
Grinds Left in Grinder
To maximize freshness, the Vario+ minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder. With 2 LED lights you can check on your grounds bin or portafilter to oversee the process.
Brewing Methods & Calibration
The Vario+ is exceptional for espresso, calibrated at the factory to finer settings and manual brewing methods. The burrs can be easily calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.
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.
Portaholder & Grounds Bin
The Vario+ comes standard with a heavy-duty Metal PortaHolder and a regular 180g grounds bin.
Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
Hopper extender (sold separately)
An extension that can add 275g of capacity to the existing bean hopper. Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
Single-Dose Hopper (sold separately)
Measure out and single-dose only the coffee beans you need for your brewing recipe.
54mm Steel Burrs (sold separately)
54mm flat steel burrs are available to customize your Vario+. The steel burrs are optimized to grind for a variety of brew methods including espresso through manual brew and beyond. With a broad range of grind range (230 microns to 1150 microns) and a narrow particle distribution (lack of fines), the 54mm steel burrs have earned a badge of honor among home coffee brewers.
