  • Introducing a new classic…

    You know that Baratza Virtuoso grinder that you’ve loved for years and years? Well, Baratza just made it even better.

    Available for the first time in Canada, we're pleased to introduce the Virtuoso+, an upgrade and replacement of the current Virtuoso. In response to customer requests, Baratza have updated the timer switch for a digital display and kept all the other trusty parts the same. The 40 second digital timer allows you to easily set a repeatable dose. And with intuitive adjustments to the tenth of a second, the every day grind just got even better. This multi-purpose grinder is the step-up for the advanced coffee lover. The high performance burr set reduces the fines in all levels of grind which gives a clean (café quality) taste in the cup, while the digital interface allows for easy, time-based dosing. With an elegant and attractive metal casing to accentuate your coffee corner, this is a brewing tool that will fast forward your coffee journey with consistency and reliability.

Very good grind consistency

Upgrading from a Breville burr grinder, the Virtuoso+ feels like a Mercedes vs a Honda Civic... Nice looking and effective, I like it very much. The best thing: the grind consistency is very very good, you can feel the difference when you brew, it makes awesome coffee. It's not as fast as expected (some beans are jumping around when the hopper is almost empty and not going through without stopping the engine so they can fall down the burrs and start it again so it can "chew" them finally... a little annoying thing to me as I only put the quantity of beans I need at each time. Also, please beware that it is a quite noisy machine even if they say it's more quieter than other models... waking up the kids in the early morning is still inevitable with this device. Otherwise, it does its job with precision and this is what I needed the most!

Great Grinder - Room for Improvement

This is my first burr grinder, but I am satisfied and impressed with its performance. The unit is easy to use when rotating the hopper to different grind settings. The timer dial is also a nice feature. Once you find the approximate amount of time needed to grind your desired amount of coffee, you can just hit the button to repeat the dose day-after-day since the machine remembers your last setting. I’ve been using this feature and it seems pretty darn consistent when grinding for drip. The grinds bin area is illuminated with two LEDs, and I particularly appreciate that all the lights power-off after a minute or so when not in use.

Compared to my previous Mr. Coffee blade grinder, the Virtuoso+ is fast and rather quiet (as far as coffee grinders go). It is a bit larger and heavier than I had anticipated. I feel like it is meant for a small cafe - that I should be storing a bag of beans in the hopper, not grinding for just myself each morning. The machine has a substantial feeling on the counter, but it could be a problem for those with limited kitchen space since it is also rather tall with the hopper attached. There is a long, heavy-duty power cord, but with no way to store it under the machine you may also have to sacrifice some counter space here.

The plastic parts are hand washable (hopper, grounds bin, gasket). I find daily operation to be a tad messy. Some grounds do cling to the hopper and bin or cascade down from the chute and end up on your countertop. The bin fit is a bit tight so you will likely knock some grounds about even when just removing and replacing it. My only real complaint is that the base is not removable on this unit, though it looks like it should be. There are some gaps in the casing underneath where the bin sits and grinds tend to collect here. The only way to remove them is by vacuuming. I’m not sure why Baratza didn’t just add a removable rubber tray since it on their other grinder models.

There's a reason this is sold out.

There is a clear reason this grinder is sold out! Although it is quite a bit more $$ than its little brother the Encore it is completely worth the extra cash. More consistent particle size, relatively fast, and you can even get away with it as a secondary grinder in a smallish cafe!
