Digital Control Panel: The front-mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. Three programmable buttons allow the user to program in the desired weight (+/- 0.1). Simply press the START button and the Vario-W automatically delivers precise dosing.
Grind Adjustment: The Vario-W offers macro and micro adjust for fine tuning with ease. The macro adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro adjust arm further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 20 distinct settings. These steps enable you to dial in the exact grind for the perfect shot.
Grinds Left in Grinder: To maximize freshness, the Vario-W minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
Brewing Methods: The Vario-W is exceptional for espresso and manual pour brewing methods.
Motor: 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.
Calibration: The Vario-W is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Vario-W burrs can be easily calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.
Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
Accessories (which may be purchased separately):
Hopper extender: An extension that can add 9 oz. of capacity to the existing 8 oz. bean hopper. Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
Steel Burrs: 54mm flat steel burrs are available for the Vario-W. These are for use in a Vario-W dedicated to grinding for manual brew, using a medium to coarse grind. They have been designed to enhance the flavor in the cup. To be clear, these will NOT grind fine enough for espresso. They are solely for a coarser grind.
