The Baratza Virtuoso+ is a new upgrade to the already powerful Baratza Virtuoso Coffee Grinder. The main difference in the Virtuoso+ is the grinder's front display. The digital timer allows users to adjust the grind-time more accurately, down to the tenth of a second so your coffee and espresso, ensuring more consistent grounds.
The Virtuoso+ comes will all of the same internal parts as its predecessor. The 40mm conical cutting burrs in the Virtuoso+ are similar to those found in heavy-duty commercial coffee grinders. As with all conical burr grinders, the Virtuoso+ surpasses entry level flat burr grinders and blade grinders by producing consistent grinds from very fine to course, as well as having blades that remain sharp over years of serious use. In addition to exceptional cutting burrs, the burrs themselves have a precision mounting system to ensure a stable platform for accurate grinding. What's more, each Virtuoso+ is calibrated before it leaves the factory. This ensures that the conical burrs are spaced the precise distance apart for all types of grinding, with 40 fineness settings from Espresso to French Press.
The Virtuoso+ Grinder is a multi-purpose grinder for many styles of brewing such as drip, espresso, and french press. The grounds holder can be removed and changed with a portafilter holder for those grinding for espresso!
Larger grinding burrs require an improved motor and additional power to turn. Never one to disappoint, the Baratza Virtuoso is driven by an incredible 240 Watt DC motor. This does not mean that the Virtuoso any faster, however. It employs special gear reduction to make the unit grind more slowly. The power of the motor keeps it from seizing on the finest of grind settings, and the gear reduction protects the flavor of your coffee. Slower grinding means not only a quieter grind, but a cooler grind, resulting in less aroma oils being lost during grinding. In fact, at just 450 RPM, the Baratza Virtuoso grinder delivers the quietest, coolest grind in its class. The new circuitry also incorporates an automatically re-setting thermal cut-off switch for optimal performance.
The Baratza Virtuoso+ comes with a one year manufacturer's warranty. Baratza offers two-tiered support via email or phone. If any issue with a Baratza product cannot be resolved over support channels, Baratza will send a prepaid return label for the defective unit and ship a new unit. You don't pay for the repair!
|Name:||Baratza Virtuoso+ Burr Coffee Grinder|
The Barazta Virtuoso+ coffee grinder exceeds my expectations. It has the right size of footprint and height for not occupying too much kitchen counter space. The quality of material and workmanship are almost excellent ( if the transparent plastic bean collector can be made thicker and firmer then will be perfect ). The grinding quality is consistent. I use “16” for Chemex brewing it produces very tasty coffee every time which is better than the manual grinding I used to do with Kinu grinder. Also, JL Hufford’s 2 day free delivery really delivered it in two day to Austin TX.
Happy with my purchase!
