Baratza Vario W+ Coffee Grinder, Ceramic Burr, Black
Many of us fell in love with the power, durability, and precision of the Baratza Vario +.
Now, we have a chance to enjoy these features while also experiencing the intelligent capabilities of the Vario W+ Burr Coffee Grinder.
The Baratza Vario-W Plus Burr Grinder is Baratza’s newest adaptation in the Vario+ series.
You’ll still see key features such as the 220 grind settings, the 54 mm flat burrs, macro/micro adjustments, the high-power Torque motor, small footprint, and much more.
With the Vario W +, however, you’ll also be introduced to the weight-based grinding system that the original Vario Plus does not have.
Many coffee grinders, including the original Baratza Vario+ Burr Grinder, use a time-based dosing system.
The Vario-W Plus uses an innovative built-in electronic scale that produces extremely accurate, weight-based results.
You can program up to three different weight dosages on your grinder, and the built-in scale technology will know exactly when to stop once it’s reached your dose.
The results are so accurate that it’s promised to yield an exact measurement within 0.1-0.2 grams from your set dosage each time.
Gone are the days of having to separately weigh your beans before brewing.
Now with the Vario W Plus, you can enjoy the weight-based dosing system that is built into the grinder.
This truly is an enormous step in making your coffee grinding experience as smooth and accurate as possible.
Baratza Vario W+ Features:
Grind by Weight: Weight-based dosing is an innovative component of the Vario W Plus designed to help your brewing process be as quick and flawless as possible.
In most grinders you have the option of setting an automatic time-based dose. For example, with the original Baratza Vario +, you can program up to three timed dosings.
This means that once you set your time, you just need to press “start” and the grinder will dose out coffee grounds for that allotted time.
Time-based dosing is nice, but it still requires that you measure your beans or grounds with a separate scale before brewing.
The grind-by-weight feature of the Vario-W Plus is perfect for those who want a seamless coffee-making process each time.
220 Grind Settings: One of the things we love the most about Baratza is their ability to provide such a wide variety of grind settings to choose from for fine tuning.
Although the Baratza Vario-W+ is perfect for espresso and manual brew settings, it can still yield coffee grounds that fit any brewing methods.
On the right side of the grinder you’ll find the 10 macro settings, labeled 1-10 and controlled by a simple slider that you move vertically.
On the left side of the grinder you’ll see the 23 different micro settings, labeled A-W and also controlled by a vertical slider.
This wide range of grind settings allows you to brew anything from a french press to the perfect espresso shot.
54mm Ceramic Flat Burrs: For your best possible coffee, a burr grinder is always the way to go.
Burrs are much more durable and effective than blades, which is why burr grinders usually cost more.
But a grinder with good-quality burrs is truly invaluable. Many other Baratza grinders (like the Baratza Virtuoso or the Baratza Encore) use stainless steel conical burrs.
The Vario+ and Vario-W+ use ceramic, flat-shaped burrs, which last even longer and produce less heat than the stainless steel burrs.
Heat control is important for burr grinders because if the friction heats up the burrs too much, it could compromise the flavors and consistency of your coffee beans.
High Torque DC Motor: One of the most important qualities in a good-quality grinder is the motor.
Baratza uses only the best motor technology, and this is especially true with their Vario series.
With the Vario-W’s high torque DC motor, you’ll get a quick and fast grind using very low heat.
One of the biggest problems with grinder motors is that they can quickly overheat when trying to produce grounds at a fast rate.
But the high Torque motor in the Vario-W Plus yields grounds at an extremely fast rate while still maintaining heat levels.
Because of its excellent levels of control, the Vario-W+ motor is also quiet, which allows you to comfortably use it in the early morning hours if you need.
Digital Control Panel: The LED digital control panel on the Vario W Plus is simple to use.
You can use this panel to set your weight-based dosage, and then use one of the three programmable buttons below to set your favorite dose.
After that, all you have to do to get the best cup of coffee is press START.
Spring the extra $ for the W+ option; makes it much easier to use. Grinder is fast, quiet, consistent and the options to pick the coarseness and preprogrammed weight settings make it great!
Dear HV! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com
The grinder is by far the best I’ve owned. Incredibly consistent grind, rather quiet considering the size of the motor and burrs, lit up grind retrieval area, and definitely a difference maker for your pour overs and other brewing methods.
Frenchpress.com was also a very easy and secure way to buy. Great communication and on-time delivery
