Facts about VARIO Developed 2007 - 2009
Introduction Copenhagen SCAE Conference June 2008
Start of serial production Sept. 2008

What does Grind-on-Demand stand for?
Ground coffee looses more than half of its aroma within appr. 15 minutes due to oxygen, humidity and light dissolving the volatile aromas out of the broken cells. The whole bean protects the aroma inside the cells. In order to minimise the aroma loss Grind-on-Demand-grinders only grind the amount of coffee beans that are needed for the shot. Dosing is done through a timer in the grinders software. The doser chamber known from traditional grinders is not needed anymore. Therefore Grind-on-Demand ensures constant quality in every cup and equal treatment for every customer because every dose for every cup is freshly ground. How do I adjust the porta filter holder to the portafilter of my espresso machine? Please follow the operating instructions, or:
Remove the porta filter holder.
Place the porta filter of your espresso machine in the porta filter holder. To do this, place the porta filter on the support, raise the handle and push it under the retaining catch. The porta filter should now sit firmly and horizontally in the holder. If your porta filter does not sit horizontally in the holder, you can reset the porta filter support. Loosen the screw at the lower front of the support using a cross-head or flat-head screwdriver, and move the support to the required height, so that the porta filter is held horizontally between the support and the catch. Then tighten the screw again.
