The NEW Virtuoso+ provides top features, including easy digital control, classic style, and a consistent, quality grind.
Grinding for espresso? Let the Virtuoso's 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. The secret to the Virtuoso+ 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 motor is controlled by a 40 second digital timer adjustable to the tenth of a second, that allows repeatable dosing. A sculptured metal top and base give this grinder a sleek, beautiful quality and fit for any kitchen or workplace.
When you want it all, the Virtuoso+ is the grinder that will get you there with function, elegance, and style.
Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuoso+’s 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4g/sec. depending on the setting. 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 French press. 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.
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 multi-purpose grinder for many styles of brewing from espresso, to drip, to French press
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.
Digital Timer: The motor is controlled by a 40 second digital timer adjustable to the tenth of a second, that allows repeatable dosing.
Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
