Anyone experiences with the Vario? was created by jason26
So after 2 years of being in a move I'm finally settled and want to start building up my coffee system. I had been looking at a Rocky vs Virtuoso and the Virtuoso had won mainly do to look, and its probably good enough. But now I see this Vario? Is it that much better. For now I'll just be using it with an aeropress or press pot, but will likely be getting a machine in the $600-1000 range within a year.

Thanks

Just received mine today -- still in the box.

Will get to the review as fast as possible.

Well, I suppose it doesn't matter too much now... Just got a Virtuoso, the price was right. Now due to a little higher tax return than planned I may pair it with a Gaggia Baby Twin or Class...

Also wanted to ask about Vario users' experience. I've seen reviews here and on coffeegeek - both excellent - and am curious how daily home users are finding it.

From the photos, I thought the Vario was a Virtuoso (which I have, recalibrated for a broader range on the espresso end) with better burrs and the electronic interface. But, since picking one up (not buying one, literally picking it up and holding in my hands!) at Espressotec in Richmond, I realize the shell is a redesign as well --> very solid.

At close to $500, tax in, it is an investment for most home users, but as folks often say, you gotta put your money in your grinder. This may very well be my next significant coffee purchase (along with a roaster upgrade from iRoast2 to Behmor 1600).

Anyone have experiences with the Vario to share?

Cheers!

If I'm only making filtered drip coffee (getting a TechniVorm KBT741) would the standard Virtuoso do? Or, would the Preciso still be worth the extra $100.00? I might consider the Vario should I go express/latte later. Or look at a Rocky or Compak K3...

The Virtuoso is more than enough -

In fact - the Maestro Plus would be perfect for this task.
