It is a significantly
better grinder than the Rocky*
it continually sells out. Typically, you lower your price only if your product isn't selling well, or if a competitor is about to introduce a new product that will affect your sales.
Baratza has a great grinder in the Vario (aka
the Mahlkönig Vario Home), and they will soon introduce a less
expensive product (under $300). Why would you compete with yourself?

In terms of grind quality
, the Baratza Vario ($429) is most often compared -- not to the Mazzer Mini
($599) but to the Mazzer Super Jolly
at $679 or more. The Vario is already one hell of a deal! Why sell it for less???
