Dan and I are both waiting on arrival, although Kyra from Baratza has confirmed that they went out last week. I am expecting it to come in this week.

Hi guys,

have you got the grinders already? I'm very curious (as you can see) how the production models are going to behave.

No, but you'll be the second person to know.

Hi Dan,

it is taking a while I have to say, where are those grinders travelling from? I understand that all the production models were sent last week, that's including models sent to shops and online stores?

The Vario and Dave's wooden PF handles are two good reason to be living in the US at the moment:)

Chris's Coffee sent me an email to see if I still wanted my Vario grinder. I told them yes. They are shipping tomorrow (26th). Somehow I had the impression that the first units were being drop shipped directly from Baratza.

Same here. It looks like grinders will go to retailers first.

OK, OK, there may be a survival instinct at play here: not only my wife would KILL me if I got a Robur (and being a Criminal Defense attorney, she might be able to get away with it, too!), but "upgrade-itis" hasn't hit me yet (again -- hallelujah!). That said, I'm very interested in the Vario as a second grinder to replace the Quick Mill Doserless . . .

Jason have it easy (having a wife who is a criminal defense attorney), while MY wife has it tough...she's married to a Coffee geek! :lol:
