Vario has smooth operation with front-mounted and easy access control units while the Baraza has an exclusive Porta Holder for hands-free grinding into espresso machine porta filter. However, they are all good!
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine. www.coffeeloversmag.com/theMagazine

Dear Joseph, the Mahlkonig Vario Home comes with direct portafilter holder. To the best of my knowledge there is no difference between the two other than the "made in Germany" and that the fine calibration of the grinder voids the warranty in the case of Mahlkonig.

There is actually one MAJOR difference between a Mahlkonig and a baratza, and that is support. My Mahlkonig vario broke down so I email Mahlkonig support (No Reply after a week), contacted there distributor again no reply.
Contacted baratza got a reply the next day.
Baratza also has all the part for order on their site. Mahlkonig does not.
Anyway I now need the one part Baratza does not sell and that is the 240v motor. If anyone knows where to source one please let me know
