Details

As one of Baratza's longest-standing offerings, the Virtuoso has been a favorite home grinder for coffee lovers of all kinds. Over the years it's seen a few updates, like an improved burr set that was originally developed for its sibling, the Preciso. Now, Baratza has decided to give it a lot more love, in the form of some seriously convenient usability features. Most obvious at first glance is the new digital timer and LCD display. The new timer allows you to set your desired grind time from 1-40 seconds, to the tenth of a second, allowing you to grind just what you need for your brews. You can also set the timer into pulse mode by holding down the button for a few seconds. In pulse mode, you can grind just what you need by holding down the button, and the timer will count up to let you know how long your dose takes.

Like the previous iteration of the Virtuoso, the Virtuoso+ features 40 mm conical steel burrs, and 40 grind settings that are capable of grinding a wide range of sizes from very fine to coarse. In our experience, this grinder absolutely shines as a home brew grinder, with great flavor quality for pour over and auto drip brewing. The 8 ounce hopper holds a generous amount of whole beans, and the 5 ounce grinds bin below - which is now illuminated by a set of handy LED lights - is spacious enough to handle your mightiest of early morning coffee needs.

Great grind

Skeptical at first, totally blown away by build quality. Decibels are very tolerable, really well designed bin. Would buy again, recommend with no reservations.

Love it!

Until I received this grinder, I had been (woefully) grinding beans with a blade grinder for years. Little did I know! This grinder is awesome. I love it! It produces consistent grinds that have a narrow spread of particle sizes. It seems very rugged. And for me, at most, it only retains maybe 0.5 gm. I've only been using it for a week but so far I love everything about it. Simple and very effective. The grind is adjustable in very small increments with 40 steps. It's an awesome grinder for home brewing of pourover or immersion coffee. Should be great for anything with the exception of frequent espresso. And I love how it's made to be user serviceable and Baratza sells parts as well. I can be consistent now from day to day!

Fast service

Had the older model for maybe ten years. Should have updated to this long time ago.

Great Grinder

I needed to up my game for pour-over. Store bought ground was ok, but I felt I could do better. The Baratza Virtuosa + did not disappoint. And thanks to Prima Coffee’s incredible packaging, everything arrived in perfect condition. I did find the timer a little sensitive but the machine is solid and the grind is extremely consistant.

Great grinder

I love this thing. Produces very consistent grounds at any setting. A bit loud, especially if the rest of the house is sleeping. Otherwise near perfect.

Great grinder

What a difference a great grinder makes. I had to sift out the fines and dust my cheap grinder made, but not with this one. This grinder is even and consistant without all the dust.

A Great Grinder

I have had the grinder for over a week. I really like it. I use it for the automatic Chemex. The grind is very consistent. I really like the LED lighted grinds bin. It makes it very easy to see coffee level in the bin. More often then not, I use Baratza’s recommended grind setting of 20. However, I vary that depending on bean. I am still experimenting to determine the optimal grind timer setting that yields the correct dose for my brews. Timed grinding is nice because it eliminates the need to weigh for single dosing. Thumbs up to Prima and Baratza for great support. I like the new vertical white line on the hopper. It makes it easier to see grind settings. The grinder is a breeze to take apart and put back together, thus facilitating cleaning. For those who want to get info timed grinding, and yet have a grinder capable of a variety of brew methods, the plus is a worthy upgrade.
