COMPACT, POWERFUL WITH CONSISTENT ZERO RETENTION GRINDING
With improvements to both the motor and burr chamber, the second generation of the Varia VS3, still boasts precision stepless grind adjustments using a fine pitched thread with 0.02mm (20 microns) of relative burr shift per adjustment increment. The stepless adjustment is operated by turning the 30g hopper in the desired direction and can achieve virtually endless particle sizes giving you full access to experimenting with your brews.
Varia created the VS3 Grinder for optimal grinding that meets even the highest demands and is suitable for many preparation methods, from espresso to pour-over to French press. The Varia VS3 Grinder is the best choice for every home barista.
Zero Retention Focus The Varia VS3 (Varia Stepless 38mm) Electric Grinder utilises a sloped geometry with a 76.5° acute angle. Using this geometry also 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. Purging will not be necessary when grinding different coffees with a retention of less than 0.1 over a 10g dose.
A Refined User Experience A minimalistic approach to the user experience allows for an expression through fine details. Integrated magnets in the hopper lid securely connect it with the hopper as well connecting the dosing cupto the base. Non slip silicone feet are also installed on the base of the VS3 to keep it secure to your counter.
CNC Machined Precision 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.
VS3 2nd Generation Motor New motor construction with full stainless steel gearbox construction. 190RPM grind speed ensuring speed for espresso and filter settings. Uncompromised consistency and precision.
Improved Burr Chamber Assembly and Central Alignment Improved burr chamber assembly for ultimate alignment and concentricity of the driveshaft and burr set resulting in extreme consistency and precision. Unique to the VS3 the driveshaft is machined to a 0.015mm tolerance. All other critical parts machined to 0.02mm making for high accuracy and consistency. P5 class double layer ball bearings for smooth, stable and precise movement. Hard chamber premium springs for stability an damping of the burr under resistance load. Decreased vibrations and movements of the internal parts increasing consistency.
