This hopper is NOT compatible with all the Vario grinders. If you're wondering whether it will fit yours, send your serial number to [email protected] to check.
Baratza's polished "Shut-Off Hopper" has a capacity of 300 grams (0.65 lbs.), 20% more bean volume than all other Baratza hoppers. It has an innovative bean shut off feature; by flipping the lever 180 degrees it closes the opening. This allows the hopper to be easily removed from the grinder, keeping the coffee beans inside. The bean waste below the stopper averages a surprisingly low 10 grams.
This new hopper is interchangeable with all other Baratza grinders as well.
