The Baratza Virtuoso Plus is the quality grinder that baristas love to use at home for a clean, cafe-quality coffee flavor. Forty mm conical burrs deliver a very uniform grind, making grinds which are exceptional for espresso, drip, manual brewing methods and French press. The burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years. With 40 individual settings (from 200 to 1200 microns), you can select the perfect grind size for any method you choose - espresso to French press. A digital screen and intuitive interface make it easy to control and replicate the perfect grind amount for your brew.
The motor is controlled by a 40 second digital timer adjustable to a tenth of a second, to allow repeatable dosing. The Virtuoso+ has 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 (these grinders are designed to grind a dose at a time for home use). The powerful, high torque motor drives the burrs and turns slowly for cool, quiet operation which permits long grinding cycles. Speed control limits the rotation of the burr to 550 RPM which reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder, as well as ensuring the beans feed smoothly into the burrs. This is a very stylish brewing tool which offers consistency and reliability.
