Baratza - Virtuoso+ Coffee Grinder

2

Introducing a new classic… You know that Baratza Virtuoso grinder that you’ve loved for years and years? Well, they've just made it even better.

Introducing the Virtuoso+, an upgrade and replacement of the current Virtuoso. In response to customer requests, Baratza has updated the timer switch for a digital display and kept all the other trusty parts the same. The 40 second digital timer allows you to easily set a repeatable dose. And with intuitive adjustments to the tenth of a second, the every day grind just got even better. This multi-purpose grinder is the step-up for the advanced coffee lover. The high performance burr set reduces the fines in all levels of grind which gives a clean (café quality) taste in the cup, while the digital interface allows for easy, time-based dosing. With an elegant and attractive metal casing to accentuate your coffee corner, this is a brewing tool that will fast forward your coffee journey with consistency and reliability.

BURRS

Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuoso+’s 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4g/sec. depending on the setting. But what really sets the Virtuoso+ burrs apart is that these burrs can do a very uniform grind, with a distinct lack of fines across its grinding range. So the Virtuoso+ burrs are exceptional for espresso, drip, manual brewing methods and French press. These conical burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years. The burrs have a precision mounting system to ensure a stable platform for accurate grinding.

GEARBOX

The Virtuoso+ utilizes a simple and efficient direct drive gear reduction transmission to move power from the DC motor to the rotating cone burr. A thermal overload cutout protects the motor from overheating due to excessive use - remember, these grinders are designed to grind a dose at a time for home use!

GRIND ADJUSTMENT

Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French press. The grind range is from 200 to 1200 microns.

GRIND RETENTION

To maximize freshness, the Virtuoso+ minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.

BREWING METHODS

The Virtuoso+ is a great multi-purpose grinder for many styles of brewing from espresso, to drip, to French press

MOTOR

A powerful, high torque 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.

DIGITAL TIMER

The motor is controlled by a 40 second digital timer adjustable to the tenth of a second, that allows repeatable dosing.

CALIBRATION

An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated.

SPEED CONTROL

With unique speed control, the Virtuoso+ uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 500 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.

Who knew a better grinder actually makes a difference?

Part of my overall 'new Good Grains coffee gear' reviews, I tested out various grinders before we landed on the Baratza Grinders. Both the Encore and this new Virtuoso+ grinder came recommended from various coffee expert friends. So, I had to give it a shot. Simply put, for the price, quality and function, you can't get a better grinder on the market today. This is now my daily grinder that I use in tandem with our Fellow Pour Over set, Pearl Scale and Klatch coffee. While we were waiting on these to arrive, I used my old grinder (which was a gift from our wedding years ago). I thought I was doing pour-over wrong at first, but after switching to this grinder, I realized my old grinder wasn't cutting it - or shall I say grinding it. Sorry, bad pun. Anyway, I'm super happy to be carrying Baratza's Grinders now and I'm stoked to have found an incredible solution at home for making an excellent cup of coffee for Gwen (my wife) and I. And, when friends come over, they love it too - and I enjoy making coffee for everyone.
