The Varia VS3 (Varia Stepless 38mm) Electric Grinder Gen 2 features a refined user experience, CNC machined precision parts, a 76.5° acute angle geometry, and precision stepless grind adjustments. With its fine pitched burr thread and stepless adjustments, there is no need to purge the grinder between different grind settings or different coffees, due to the grind retention of less than 0.1g for a 10g dose. Experiment with grind size with the stepless adjustment system, with virtually endless particle size settings.
Suitable for fine espresso grind through to pour over and cold brew, the Varia VS3 is perfect for commercial café environments and the coffee-loving home user.
76.5° Sloped Geometry – Zero Retention Focus: Using this geometry allows for ideal zero retention conditions, as well as a better workflow in relation to adding coffee to the hopper, making grind adjustments, and 180° access to the dosing cup. This also means that no purging is needed between coffees.
Fine Pitched Thread With 0.02mm (20microns) Of Relative Burr Shift Per Increment – Precision Stepless Grind Adjustments: The stepless adjustment is operated by turning the hopper in the desired direction, achieving virtually endless particle sizes! Each shift of the burr represents a 20μm relative vertical burr shift or 0.02mm per increment. Hopper capacity of 30g.
Refined User Experience: A minimalistic approach to the user experience allows for an expression through fine details. Integrated magnets connect the hopper lid with the hopper, as well as the base to connect with the dosing cup. Non-slip silicone feet are also installed on the base of the VS3.
CNC Machined Precision: The grinder features a die-cast, space-grade aluminium alloy body and all critical parts are CNC machined (Computer numerical control machined) to 0.02mm precision tolerances, providing absolute accuracy and stability when making adjustments and grinding. The main axle and driveshaft is supported by P5-grade angular contact bearings to achieve the most uniform particle size results.
