Baratza Vario Review

Because Baratza pulled out all of the stops when designing their Vario, our Baratza Vario review will do just the same. Those familiar with the Baratza brand will find a lot of what they love in the Encore, the Virtuoso and the Preciso. But Baratza wasn’t shy about upping their game just a bit when it came to the Vario.

Porlex Grinder Review

This Porlex grinder review focuses on the unique qualities of this product, but also on just what it can do as the Porlex JP-30 stainless steel coffee grinder is almost as artistic as it is functional. Designed and manufactured in Japan, this hand-powered coffee grinder is also one of the most popular grinders you will find. Porlex does away with the complexity that comes with electric grinders, instead couching the grinding functionality into a comparatively small and sleek tube.
