Below are detailed descriptions of the features that make the Virtuoso Preciso stand out from other grinders in its class.
Precise, commercial-quality burrs:
Manufactured in Italy, the Virtuoso Preciso's burrs are of the same material and durability as the industry's highest-quality line of commercial conical burr coffee grinders. The burrs rotate slowly minimizing the heat in the beans, to preserve the flavor.
Dual Grind Adjustment System:
The range of grind choices on the Baratza Virtuoso Preciso is both extensive and easy to use. 40 Macro Settings from fine to course can each be fine tuned using the innovative micro adjustment mechanism.
The Virtuoso Preciso boasts an enhanced anti-static design, which minimizes messy coffee dust. While no coffee grinder is completely dust-free, the Virtuoso Preciso sets a new standard for minimal dust in this class of coffee grinder.
The powerful, high torque DC motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permitting long grinding duty-cycles without the motor overheating. For ultimate protection, the circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
The coffee powder is tightly controlled in the grinding chamber for trouble-free operation of the grinder.
Attractive top casting:
Primarily an aesthetic attribute, the additional weight of the top casting increases the stability of the grinder. It also provides further sound and vibration isolation making for a quieter, smoother-running coffee grinder.
The Virtuoso Preciso by Baratza has set a new standard in ease of use and total control with the addition of the Micro Adjustment.
