If you haven't already sourced one, troll craigslist and eBay for a used Baratza Virtuoso. I will put mine up (owned for less than 5 months) in another month or two when I can find a production Vario (new from Baratza).
In Vancouver, Virtuosos sell new for ~$210; I will ask $150. I brush the burrs daily, use the Grindz cleaner once a month and keep 'er squeaky clean. No problems to report, other than it is not the most ideal choice for espresso. If I could convince my wife to allow 2 grinders on the counter, I'd keep the Virtuoso for press, Chemex, Aeropress and vacuum and get a dedicated espresso grinder (stepless). As I can't, I am simply upgrading to another multi-use, easy to dial in machine.
Good luck. Coffee, like life, can be challenging, but damn fun and oh-so-good when you get it right!
