The Virtuoso lives up to its name by providing technical skill, classic style, and a consistent, quality grind.
This is the next step up from the entry-level Baratza Encore. The main difference between the two is that the Virtuoso features double the grind speed of the Encore, making it perfect for finer espresso grinds.
Commercial Quality: The secret to the Virtuoso’s consistent, smooth grind is two-fold: an efficient motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 550 RPM. This slower speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
Consistent Particle Size: Delivers at both the coarse and fine ends of the grind range for every brew from espresso to french press. Choose between one of 40 individual grind settings.
Exterior Upgrade: Easily control and replicate the perfect grind amount for your brew with the help of a new digital screen and an intuitive interface. Keep an eye on the grinding action through the clear grounds bin, backlit with LEDs.
Sleek & Elegant: A sculptured metal top and base give this grinder an expensive, elegant image that adds a sense of class and quality to kitchen counters and coffee shop workspaces alike.
Don't Dump It, Fix It: Now you can ditch the modern standard of dump & replace. Unlike many products that are made cheaply with expensive repairs, this grinder is made to last and is backed with affordable maintenance. You can buy the parts yourself from Baratza's website, or have them do the repairs for you.
Quality Years of Service: Baratza is committed to keeping their products out of the landfills. This commitment is often a pleasant surprise for customers. With regular cleaning, maintenance, repair, and even rebuilds these grinders can give an excellent, accurate grind for many years.
Buy Once With Confidence: A little more money upfront will save you cash in the end. This grinder is made to last. Backed with raving reviews, it is well worth the few extra dollars for quality that delivers.
