Up for sale is a Baratza Virtuoso conical burr grinder that has only been used a few times. I work in the coffee industry, and I can tell you this is a great burr grinder for drip coffee needs.
It has a really great range from coarse to very fine, and grinds decently quick. It is perfect for home use. I've made amazing cups from aeropress, v60, kalita wave, and bee house drippers with this grinder. I rarely ever use because I work almost every day in the coffee business and don't really drink coffee at home.
Please feel free to ask any questions. Below is a description of the grinder that was taken from Seattle Coffee Gear. Product Overview: The Virtuoso lives up to its name by providing technical skill, classic style and a consistent, quality grind. Let the Virtuosos professional-grade 40mm conical burrs perform their magic for a consistent, fine grind. How about a French Press?
The Virtuoso can handle that too, with a particle size uniformity that gives you consistency from cup to cup. In fact, the Virtuoso is so consistent at both the coarse and fine ends of the grind range that we consider it to be in a class all by itself and so do many of the micro- and specialty-roasters who swear by it. The secret to the Virtuosos consistent, smooth grind is two-fold: an efficient DC motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 450 RPM, ensuring a smooth bean feed and reducing noise, heat and static buildup.The Virtuosos exterior is just as finely tuned as its interior a convenient front-mounted pulse button allows for grinding directly into an espresso filter basket, while a 60-second timer means that its easy to replicate the ideal grind time. With the Virtuoso, the look goes beyond merely functional. A sculptured metal top and base give this grinder an expensive, elegant image that adds a sense of class and quality to kitchen counters and coffee shop workspaces alike. When you want it all, the Virtuoso is the grinder that will get you there with function, elegance, and style. Features: Burrs Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuosos 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4 g/sec.
But what really sets the Virtuoso burrs apart is that these burrs can do a very uniform grind, with a distinct lack of fines across its grinding range. So the Virtuoso burrs are exceptional for espresso, drip, manual brewing methods and Press Pot.
These conical burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years. The burrs have a precision mounting system to ensure a stable platform for accurate grinding. Gearbox In 2012, Baratza introduced the second generation Gearbox (GB 2.0). With GB 2.0, Baratza has significantly increased the strength and durability of the drive transmission.In addition to a new drive shaft, motor mounting plate and bushings, this change includes a new drive gear made of 15% glass filled thermo plastic which is quieter than the prior metal gear, wears better and is more shock resistant. During the rigorous testing process, stainless steel screws were thrown into the burrs, and in every case the motor/gear/burrs stopped immediately, the (automatically-resettable) thermal cutout was triggered, and the gears were fine.
Grind Adjustment Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. The grind range is from 200 to 1200 microns.
Grinds Left in Grinder To maximize freshness, the Virtuoso minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder. Brewing Method The Virtuoso is a great all around grinder, from manual brewing to espresso. Motor A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting thermal cutoff switch.
Calibration An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated.
Speed Control With unique speed control, the Virtuoso uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 500 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs. Timer Switch The Virtuoso has a 60-second timer with segmented graphics, for easily repeatable grind times.Cleaning Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
