1) (Now you've seen it.)
2) A wonderful bit of graffito from the 1960s read, "Eat $#!+ -- 50 million flies can't
be wrong!" Well, we're not flies here, but there are a significant number of people both here and on CG that own (and are happy with
) their Baratza Varios. Looking at a grinder in a store will give you an idea of how it looks. So, too, does looking at the picture above. Trying
it on a machine in the store will give you an idea of how it works with the machine in the store, not
with how it's going to work with your machine. Going to someone's house to try their Baratza Vario will give you an idea of how it works with their
machine in their
home, but not with your machine. And so on and so on and so on . . . .
This is an excellent example of why most online vendors offer something called "Buyer's Remorse." If it doesn't work out, you can return it . . .
