Baratza Virtuoso+ Coffee Grinder
The Baratza Virtuoso+ is a new upgraded model from the previous Virtuoso that has been sold for years. New to the Virtuoso+ digital display which replaces the old timer switch.
- Conical grinding burrs: European manufactured at 40 mm. Generates less heat buildup than flat burrs. Produces a very uniform grind. Very durable burrs and will remain sharp for many years. The burrs have a precision mounting system to ensure a stable platform for accurate grinding.
- Performance: Capable of grinding beans up to 2.4 grams a second depending on your current grind setting.
- Calibration system: Helps ensure that your grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, you can recalibrate your grinder.
- Retention reduction: The fewer grinds left in the grinder, the fresh your espresso will be.
- Stepped: Wide range of 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French press. The grind range is from 200 to 1200 microns.
- Multi-purpose: The wide range of settings makes it easier to go back and forth between settings when compared to a stepless grinder. This makes this grinder more suitable if you use more than 1 type of coffee maker(ex espresso machine and Chemex).
- Digital timer: The motor is controlled by a 40-second digital timer adjustable to the tenth of a second, allowing for repeatable dosing.
- Speed control: The Virtuoso+ uses a combination of gears and an electronic speed reduction to control the grinding burr speed to 500 RPM. This helps reduce heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.

Espresso Coffee Grinder Warnings:
- Changing grind settings: It is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered on and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. To remedy this, you will have to open up the grinder to get access to the grinding burrs. This issue will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.
- Electrical cord: The cord is placed between the packaging (foam or cardboard) and the underside body of the grinder. During shipping, it is normal for a bend or insignificant blemish/slice to damage the cord.
- Finding coffee grinds in a new grinder: We have confirmed that the manufacturer tests EVERY grinder with coffee beans before it leaves their facility. Unfortunately, they are not always able to get every trace of coffee out of the grinders after testing. As a result, you may find coffee beans or grinds inside your grinder, or there may be grinds in the packaging.
- Static issues: There are static issues with all grinders, even the highest-quality models. We firmly believe that the static comes from the coffee beans. If you are having static problems with your coffee grinder, try using a different blend of beans.
- Electrical: To avoid electrical damage (which is not considered a manufacturer’s defect), please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. A surge without protection can damage a grinder at the power switch, the capacitor, the motor, or the wiring.
- Burr cleaning: For routine maintenance of the grinding burrs, we recommend using grinder cleaning agents. We do not recommend any removal of the burrs or the burr carrier for cleaning (unless absolutely necessary) as re-assembly can cause damage.
- Replacing burrs: NEVER use a flathead screwdriver and hammer to wedge under the burrs for removal. This could badly damage your grinder.
