Baratza Virtuoso Grinder

The Virtuoso Grinder was introduced in Dec. 2005. The Virtuoso has many of the winning features of the Maestro Plus™ along with commercial grade components, higher performance and sleeker style. With the Virtuoso™, it’s now easier than ever to make professional quality coffee, whether at the home, the office or your café. In additional to all the great features of the Maestro Plus™, the Virtuoso™ includes commercial grade conical burrs, a 480 watt DC motor, a new shape and a beautiful brushed-satin metal top.

Manufactured in Italy, the Virtuoso’s 44mm grinding burrs are the same material and durability as the industry’s highest-quality line of commercial conical burr coffee grinders. Preciso burr set grinders are exceptional at producing consistent grinds from very fine to course, as well as being durable and will remain sharp for many years. The burrs have a precision mounting system to ensure a stable platform for accurate grinding. The Virtuoso™ has 40 steps of adjustment. Choose the perfect setting by turning the bean hopper to the desired position.

The powerful, high torque 480 watt DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch. The Virtuoso™ uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 450 RPM. The electronic speed controller is adjustable from 405 to 495 RPM in the event that specific user conditions require modification of the speed. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.

The Virtuoso has a sixty second timer, with segmented graphics, for easily repeatable grind times. It also has a front mounted pulse button that manually controls the on/off function. This is nice if you wish to grind a small amount of coffee for espresso. If you have an espresso machine, you will enjoy the convenience of being able to grind directly into the filter basket for your machine. After you remove the coffee grounds bin, you can insert your filter basket (portafilter) directly under the dispensing chute to collect the coffee as it is being dispensed. You can push the pulse button with your thumb while holding the filter basket for true one hand operation.

One important and often overlooked task required of owning a good coffee grinder is routine cleaning. To clean the Virtuoso™, just remove the coffee been hopper to expose the grinding chamber. At this point the outer ring burr simply lifts out. The entire grinding chamber can then be thoroughly cleaned in a few minutes.

One year warranty. If your grinder has a problem we will see if we can resolve it over the website or phone or will promptly send a replacement grinder and a return tag for your old one.
