BARATZA VIRTUOSO+ GRINDER
THE VIRTUOSO+ NOW INCLUDES A DIGITAL TIMER AND KEEPS THE STYLISH METAL TOP AND BASE FOR AN EVEN MORE MODERN LOOK.
A convenient front-mounted dial allows you to adjust a 40-second digital timer to a tenth of a second. Press the dial to grind directly into portafilter or the included grounds bin. This makes it easy to adjust and replicate the ideal grind time for consistent dosing. The clear grounds bin is backlit so you can easily see when the grounds have reached the fill line indicating that it needs to be emptied.
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.
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.
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.
Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
