Thank you for purchasing the VARIO-W Coffee Grinder. With the VARIOW, it’s now easier than ever to make professional quality coffee, whether
at home, the office, or your café.
Below are detailed descriptions of the features that make the VARIO-W
stand out from other grinders in its class.
Precise, commercial-quality ceramic burrs
Manufactured in Germany by MAHLKÖNIG, the VARIO-W’s ceramic
burrs are of the same material and durability as the industry’s highestquality line of commercial coffee grinders. Ceramic burrs remain sharp
for up twice the lifetime of the highest quality steel burrs.
Weight-Based Grinding for extreme accuracy (and ease) in dosing
The Vario-W is a fully integrated real-time weight-based grinder. The
built-in precision load cell provides accurate weighing, while grinding, to
within 0.1 gram. The user needs only to select the desired gram weight
of ground coffee, press START, and the grinder will automatically grind
the selected weight of coffee (+/- 0.2 grams) and then stop itself.
Innovative grind adjustment system
Macro and Micro adjustments are quickly and repeatedly achievable with
the intuitive VARIO-W adjustment system. The range of grind and the accuracy of the settings is truly impressive. The VARIO-W has 230 distinct
settings of grind from Espresso to French Press.
Quiet drive system
The VARIO-W houses a high torque DC motor with a belt drive transmission. The precise timing belt drive provides for smooth, quiet operation
and thermal disconnection of motor and burr casing. The motor is able
to effortlessly handle long duty cycles. Additionally, the VARIO-W possesses an automatically re-settable thermal safety circuit that protects
the motor from overheating.

Safety Information
Important Information
Please read the information below
very carefully. It contains important tips for the use, safety, maintenance and care of this appliance.
Please keep these operating instructions for future reference.
For Your Safety
Do not operate the grinder with
a damaged cord or plug, or if the
grinder malfunctions. Do not leave
your grinder unattended while
turned ON.
Your new VARIO-W is rated for
either 120VAC or 230VAC. Please
confirm the voltage of your VARIOW on the nameplate attached
to the bottom of the grinder. The
120VAC VARIO-W can be used
from 100 to 130VAC and the
230VAC VARIO-W can be used
from 200 to 240 VAC. Please insure your supply voltage range
matches the nameplate voltage
on your VARIO-W . Only clean
the grinder housing with a dry or
slightly damp cloth. Do not use this
grinder for anything other than its
intended use (i.e. grinding whole
roasted coffee beans). Disassemble your grinder only as directed
in the care and cleaning section
of this manual. If you cannot remedy a malfunction, please visit the
web at www.baratza.com for assistance. Repairs are to be performed
only by authorized service centers.

needs a big change, then adjust
the Macro lever to a new position,
then fine tune with the Micro lever.
The full range on the Micro scale
is equal to one “click” or position
on the Macro scale. With both
levers, moving UP produces a
smaller particle size and DOWN
produces a larger particle size.
The actual grind size for a particular setting will vary depending on
many factors, including: degree of
roast (light vs. dark), freshness,
humidity, type of bean, oil content,
etc. With use, you will determine
the setting that is right for your
taste, brewing style and your
favorite beans.
Initial Operation
Attention
Place the VARIO-W Grinder on
a level surface. Insert the hopper (with the lid on) by lining up
the two small tabs on the base of
the hopper with their respective
slots, turn clockwise until the back
tab lines up with the mark on the
back of the grinder. If the display
lights up, but the grinder does not
work, continue turning the hopper
clockwise. Insert the plug into an
AC outlet. Remove the lid from
the hopper by lifting off. Pour the
desired quantity of roasted whole
coffee beans into the hopper up to
a maximum of 8 oz. / 250 g. Replace the lid. Ensure the ground
coffee bin is centered on the load
cell platform, then press TARE,
the display should then read 00.0.
TM
Note
Partially ground coffee beans may
remain between the burrs after
the grinder is turned off, adjusting
the grind may be easier when the
grinder is running.
Setting the Macro and Micro
Grind Adjustment
Move the Macro lever (on the right
side) up or down to the desired
range of grind size. Set the Micro
adjustment lever (on the left side)
to the middle of the scale. Grind a
small amount of coffee by pressing the START button, then pressing it again to stop. Check the
particle size. If the particle size
is close to what you desire, now
use the Micro lever to “fine tune”
your grind size. If the particle size

Normal Grinding Operation
1. Press the up or down arrow just
below the LCD display to adjust
the weight. Press and hold the (up
or down) arrow for 3 seconds to
advance the weight more quickly.
Press the desired button (1, 2,
3). The display LCD will show the
corresponding programmed grind
weight in grams. Press START/
STOP button to begin grinding.
While grinding, the LCD will display real-time the weight of coffee
in the grounds bin. When the LCD
reaches the programmed weight
(+/- 0.2 gram), the motor will stop
and the display will show the actual
weight in the grounds bin for 3 seconds, then the LCD will reset again
to the programmed weight. The
grinder will only allow for a maximum of 150 grams to be ground at
one time. At any time during grinding, you can stop the grinding by
pressing the START/STOP button.
The motor will stop and the LCD
will reset to the selected preset
weight.
2. Once you have reached the desired weight setting, press the corresponding button (1, 2, or 3) and
hold for 3 seconds. The weight
shown in the LCD display will blink
to confirm the setting is stored.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 above
for each of the other two button.
Programming Dosing Weights
The VARIO-W is equipped with
three programmable buttons for
weight dosing. The buttons are
simply labeled 1, 2, 3. These programmable buttons only adjust the
weight of coffee to be ground, they
do not adjust the coarseness of the
grind. Each button comes from the
factory with a preset weight:
1 - 15.0 g, 2 - 30.0 g, 3 - 60.0 g.
You can easily program more or
less grinding weight as follows:
TM
The quantity of ground coffee you
need depends on the type of bean,
coarseness of the grind, brewing
method and personal taste. With
use, you will find the most suitable
settings for your personal taste. If
the grinder is unplugged, the grinder will retain the stored weights.

Sleep Mode
little). If not, use the special Vario
tool (see photo) provided with your
grinder. Insert the tool and turn in
the finer direction until you begin to
hear the motor slow or labor. You
are done! If you do not have a tool
you can substitute a 2mm Allen
wrench and turn clock wise while
looking up at it.
To minimize standby power consumption, the VARIO-W will go
into “sleep mode” automatically after 5 minutes of non-use. While in
sleep mode, the LCD display goes
blank. To “wake up” your Vario-W ,
simply press any button EXCEPT
the Start button.

Burr Calibration
of the VARIO-W
TM
A 2mm allen head calibration screw
is located in the round hole behind
the discharge chute (see photo at
right). This calibration screw allows the user to easily adjust the
calibration in the finer direction
while the grinder running.
To make the adjustment, empty all
beans from the grinder, lower the
Macro and Micro levers all the way
to the bottom and run it briefly to
expel any partially ground coffee.
With the bin removed, TARE the
grinder. Now press any of the preset buttons and press START. The
grinder will run until you press the
START button again or 3 minutes
elapses. While the grinder is running, raise the Macro arm all the
way to the top (Espresso). You
should not hear any change in motor speed. Now raise the Micro arm
up the midpoint. You should begin
to hear the motor slow (or labor a

Scale Calibration
Care and Cleaning
If you display is showing “EEE”
or “out” calibrate the scale. You
can make your own weight if you
have a secondary accurate scale.
Put your (Vario-W/Esatto) grounds
bin on the scale, add water until
you reach 200 grams (total weight
bin + water). Once you have the
weight you are ready to calibrate
the scale. Unplug your Vario-W or
Esatto and make sure that nothing
is on the scale platform. Plug the
grinder in and while it powers on/
boot up hold buttons 1 &2. Display
will come up with a value (approx
310-350). Press button 1 again
(display will read “cal” and set the
200 gram weight on the platform.
Display will show “pas” and then
show 200. Remove the bin, empty
and dry it, place the bin back on
scale and TARE. Your scale should
work correctly at this point. Please
e-mail us at [email protected]
if you continue to have problems.
Cleaning the Housing and
Hoppers
Remove any remaining beans
from the bean hopper. Press the
START/STOP button to run any remaining beans through the grinder
until all grinding is finished. Remove the grounds bin.
Remove the plug from the AC power outlet. Remove the hopper by
twisting it in a counterclockwise direction until it stops (about ¼ inch,
or 0.4cm) and then lift the bean
hopper from the housing. Wash
the hopper, hopper lid, and ground
coffee bin in warm soapy water,
rinse and dry.
Caution
Do not put the bean hopper, hopper lid, or ground coffee bin in the
dishwasher. Hand wash only. Do
not immerse the grinder housing
in water.
Cleaning the Burrs
If the grinder is used daily, the
burrs should be cleaned every
few weeks. Cleaning enables the
burrs to achieve the most consistent grind possible. Cleaning
also removes coffee oils which will
stale and degrade the flavor of the
ground coffee. Do not wash the
burrs.

Remove the Bean Hopper and
Upper Burr
Replacing the Upper Burr
Wiggle and push down firmly on
the burr carrier to ensure that it
seats properly. Rotate the burr
carrier counter clockwise to lock in
place.
Remove all the beans from the
Bean Hopper. Rotate the hopper
counter clockwise until it stops, lift
the hopper off the grinder.
Rotate the metal burr carrier clockwise until it stops (see
picture), then lift straight up and
out of the grinder housing. The
ceramic burr is mounted to the underside of the burr carrier. Clean
the burr using a stiff brush. Use
the bristle brush (included with
your grinder) to remove any loose
coffee residue on the fixed burr
and the lower burr mounted within
the motor housing.
Rotate burr carrier counter clockwise
to replace.
Replacing the Bean Hopper
To replace the bean hopper, line
up the two small tabs on the base
of the hopper with their respective slots in the top of the grinder
housing and insert the hopper into
the grinder. Once the hopper is
in place rotate it clockwise until it
clicks to a stop (about ¼ inch or
0.4 cm).
Rotate burr carrier clockwise to remove.

Automatic Cleaning
Troubleshooting
A thorough, fast, and easy cleaning can be accomplished using
Grindz™ grinder cleaner. Grindz™
is a product designed to dislodge
coffee particles and absorb and remove odors and coffee oil residue.
Simply place the recommended
amount of Grindz™ (35 g ) into the
empty grinder hopper. Adjust grind
setting to Coarse, press the preset
button that is set for more than 35
g. If none are set above 35 g, select
the highest one and press the up
arrow until the LCD displays more
than 35 g, then START/STOP until
all of the Grindz™ has been ground,
then press START/STOP again to
stop the grinder. Once complete,
we recommend grinding some coffee (4 Tbs.) to remove any Grindz™
residue. Discard the ground coffee.
For information on Grindz™ go to
www.urnex.com. or baratza.com.
Grinder does not run when
switched on.
Insure the hopper is correctly in
place and rotated fully clockwise
to the stop.
Grinder runs, but weight
displayed does not count up
properly.
Remove grounds bin and check
to see no coffee particles are under the weighing platform. Blow
air under the platform to clear
any coffee grounds. Do not use a
tool to clear out grounds, only air.
Grinder is operating normally,
but stops abruptly.
Immediately turn off the grinder.
A foreign object, such as a pebble, green unroasted coffee bean
or a twig, may have jammed the
burrs. See “Cleaning the Burrs”.
The grind is not fine enough or
coarse enough.
Check the grind adjustment.
