The Virtuoso lives up to its name by providing technical skill, classic style and a consistent, quality grind.

Grinding for espresso? Let the Virtuoso’s professional-grade 40mm conical burrs perform their magic for a consistent, fine grind. How about a French Press? The Virtuoso can handle that too, with a particle size uniformity that gives you consistency from cup to cup. In fact, the Virtuoso is so consistent at both the coarse and fine ends of the grind range that we consider it to be in a class all by itself — and so do many of the micro- and specialty-roasters who swear by it.


Commercial grade conical burrs:
Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuoso's 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4 g/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 Press Pot. 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.


Grind for any brewing method:
There are many coffee grinders on the market.  The Virtuoso has 40 steps of adjustment.  Choose the perfect setting by turning the bean hopper to the desired position.
Innovative Calibration:
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 250 to 1200 microns.

DC 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.

Unique 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. 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.

Timer switch:
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 perfect for grinding a small amount of coffee for espresso

Pulse Button:
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 directly under the dispensing chute to collect the coffee as it is being dispensed.

Service and Support:
One year warranty.  If your grinder has a problem Baratza LLC will see if they can resolve it over phone or will promptly send a replacement grinder and return tag for your old one. We can provide their contact info if needed.

Recommended for drip coffee makers, french press coffee and all types of espresso machines.
