With over 16 years of experience in Gourmet coffee grinding and brewing equipment, BARATZA sets the standard for home grinders. This Virtuoso model is the updated 586 version and features the Virtuoso Preciso burrs. The older model 585 has been discontinued and is no longer for sale new. The Virtuoso's advantage over the Encore is a sturdy nickel bottom casing and the ability to produce a finer grind. The grinding on this current (586) Virtuoso Model is good for espresso machines with pressurized filter baskets and does an acceptable job on espresso machines with a non-pressurized basket.

Baratza Grinder Comparison Chart
BaratzaBaratza is the company at the forefront of home coffee grinding innovation. Before Baratza entered the coffee manufacturing scene, one was hard pressed to find an affordable burr coffee grinder. Now, home baristas and cafes alike have multiple affordable burr grinders to choose from courtesy of the U.S. based company. Baratza currently offers five different burr grinders: Baratza Maestro Plus, Baratza Virtuoso, Baratza Virtuoso Preciso, Baratza Vario, and the weight based grinding Baratza Vario-W. In addition to this lineup, Baratza has also released a weight based grinding attachment for their grinders, the Baratza Esatto. One popular mantra from the coffee world is: the biggest investment a coffee fan can make is in a high quality grinder. Baratza has made the "investment" part of that coffee truism a lot more attainable.
Hey, Pat. It's important to use a grinder cleaner (like our Full Circle Cleaner) every month or so in order to minimize the amount of oil build up. It's also important to remove the burrs every half year or so and wipe them down with a dry cloth or paper towel.
