Baratza Vario Messy Dosing

Postby century on Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:32 pm

Hey Guys,

I have had my Vario for almost a year now....and I love it.
A couple tweaks here and there and it grinds amazingly.

The only thing that drives me nuts is the messiness.
I tried the yogurt cup method, which was great when I had a smaller portafilter on my Silvia but since upgrading to a Rocket, the portafilter is bigger (taller) and the yogurt cup just aint cutting it anymore.

Any suggestion on what I can mod or use, so I can get a less messy, even doing into my portafilter?
I can dose into the OEM bin but I prefer not too.

You might want to check out OE's snap-on funnels: http://www.orphanespresso.com/OE-Espres...c_324.html

I've got to say that, especially after years of Mazzer dosers, my Vario seems incredibly neat and tidy.

Yup, I can vouch for the OE funnel + Vario. Depending on them humidity you're dealing with, and the coffee you're grinding, you may still get some coffee with a mind of its own, but for me, it has been far tidier. I now own three different size funnels for my various machines, and they all work great with the Vario.
