Baratza Virtuoso+

An elegantly conceived, conical burr grinder designed for manual brewing.

A conical burr grinder that has been loved by filter coffee brewers around the world for over a decade, but now with a digital display and timer upgrade. This reliable classic has 40 grind settings, is at least double the weight of most other domestic grinders in it’s class and sits firmly in our range as the premium filter coffee grinder. Additional features include a large 225g bean hopper and a 140g removable anti-static ground coffee bin.

Please note: we do not recommend the Virtuoso+ for espresso brewing. If you’re looking for an espresso grinder then check out the Sette range from Baratza.

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 & Retention

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.

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.

Other Features

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.
