A Straightforward Coffee Grinding Experience

The Baratza Virtuoso is a professional grade appliance that uses 40mm burrs to delivery coffee via a precise grinding mechanism. There is a DC motor that allows the beans to be kept cool during the grinding. The combo of electric and gear speed reducers maintain the rpm’s at around 450. Consequently, the noise output is also relatively low. The Baratza Conical Burr Coffee Grinder has a variety of features that you might find elsewhere, but it is the way they are implemented here that should be noticed.

Stylish Design

This burr coffee bean grinder incorporates a design that’s easy on the eye, and the average person would find practical. The bean hopper capacity is at 8oz, which is more than enough for even the largest of households. The grounds bin capacity is at 5oz, which receive the grounds at 1.5-2.4g per second. There is a pulse button that allows the unit to grind into an espresso filter basket. This then allows for easy transfer into a brewing unit. Furthermore, when you find the perfect grind you can replicate it as many times as you want via a timer that has an upper limit of 60 seconds.

Why Invest In This Coffee Machine

Those who have been using pre-ground coffee all their life have been missing out on the best that coffee has to offer. By grinding coffee just a few minutes before you put it into the brewing unit you’ll get a much better flavor. The aroma of the original coffee beans will be richer, and you can choose the exact size that you want the grounds to come in. Therefore, a coffee appliance like the Baratza Virtuoso can offer a lot of different tastes, in addition to the tastes being unmatched by pre-ground coffee.


Elegant Grinding Mechanism

The burr grinder operates slowly and gently enough for the beans to remain cool during grinding, and that in turn keeps the strong aroma of the coffee. So if you spend a lot of money on high quality beans, you can be confident that the taste will be felt once you drink them.

Large Hopper

There is enough room for up to 8oz of beans to be stored. As a result you won’t need to fill up the hopper on a regular basis. It’s a simple once in a while set and forget job.


No LCD Screen

An LCD screen makes the data entry a little more organized and responsive than using dials. For the price that this coffee grinder charges an LCD screen shouldn’t be out of the question. It would certainly make the process of making your coffee a little bit more straightforward.

The Baratza Virtuoso has many features you might find elsewhere, but it has implemented them in a way that is of professional standard.
