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. 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.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. To maximize freshness, the Virtuoso minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder. The Virtuoso is a great all around grinder, from manual brewing to espresso.
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. An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind.If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated. 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. The Virtuoso has a 60-second timer with segmented graphics, for easily repeatable grind times. Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy. 120 V AC 180 Watts 50/60 Hz. 230 V AC 180 Watts 50/60 Hz.COFFEE REVIEW'S TOP 30: #3 COFFEE OF 2017--97 points. JBC Coffee Roasters " Ulos Batak Sumatra Peaberry". Location: Madison, Wisconsin Aroma: 10. Origin: Northern Sumatra, Indonesia Acidity: 9. Review date: January 2017 Aftertaste: 9.
Plumeria, chocolate fudge, white grapefruit, perique (fermented) pipe tobacco, white truffle in aroma and cup. Juicy, bright acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel.The resonant, flavor-saturated finish is long, balanced, and reiterates all of the tendencies in the cup: sweet (plumeria, chocolate), tart (white grapefruit), savory (pipe tobacco, truffle). This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 3 coffee on Coffee Reviews list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2017.
Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are admired for their complex earth and fruit notes that appear to result largely from unorthodox fruit removal and drying practices called wet hulling. This is a splendid example of the potential of the type.
This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. JBC Coffee Roasters vision is simple: let the coffee lead the way through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums. The Bottom Line: An exquisite experience of Sumatra coffee: exotic, deeply sweet, umami-rich.
