Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder (Black)
A solid example of a multipurpose grinder combining ease-of-use, sleek appearance and excellent features to assist you in creating cafe quality coffee.
The front mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. Three programmable buttons allow for grind time setting within 0.1 seconds (about 0.2 gram). Simply press the START button and the Vario automatically delivers precise dosing.
The Vario offers macro and micro adjust for fine tuning with ease. The macro adjust moves from fine to coarse in 10 distinct settings. A secondary micro adjust arm further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 20 distinct settings. With a simple slide of the lever, you can switch from espresso to other coffee methods
The Vario’s 54 mm professional ceramic flat burrs produce accurate grinding and high throughput. The Vario grinds 1.6 g/second at fine and 2.2 g/second for coarser settings. The broad range of grind (230 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Vario burrs.
The Vario comes standard with a heavy-duty metal portaholder, a burr removal tool, and an adjustment tool, allowing customers to personalize their grinding experience to their brewing preferences.
Most small, consumer appliances are designed to wear out, or stop being useful in a very short time. These appliances are difficult and expensive to repair, so consumers are trained to dump and replace which has big environmental implications. In contrast, we’ve purposefully designed Baratza grinders to be maintained like commercial grinders and maximize their value. With regular cleaning, maintenance, repair, and even rebuilds our grinders can give an excellent, accurate grind for many years.
