The Baratza Virtuoso Plus is a strong all-purpose grinder that can grind fine enough for espresso and coarse enough for drip and french press. Just like the original Virtuoso, the Virtuoso Plus has 40 mm burrs that are mounted for a consistent grind for different brew types.
Features and Specifications
A combination of gear and electronic speed control allows the burrs to move at a calm 550 RPM in order to reduce heat, noise, and static while grinding. The burrs also reduce fines in different grinds to help heighten your coffee’s quality.
The high-powered DC motor is now controlled by the brand new 40 second digital timer, which can be adjusted by one tenth of a second for consistent dosing. The Baratza Virtuoso Plus has 40 grind settings, between 200 to 1200 microns, that can be changed by turning the hopper.
The Virtuoso Plus has a metal casing and new branding on the front and side that helps it stand out on your counter-top. Some key differences from the original are the new clear bean hopper and grinder bin, which allows you to see how much ground coffee you have with the additional LED light installed inside.
Why You Should Get It
The Virtuoso Plus is an easy grinder to use thanks to its simple controls, digital timer, and pulse mode. The Virtuoso Plus will grind with the simple press of a button, and by holding down the button for a few seconds, owners can use the pulse mode to add up the time it takes for their correct dosage.
They can then set the Virtuoso Plus to that time and have the grinder automatically dose that amount of coffee for each use. If you’re looking for something more seriously geared toward espresso, we have the Baratza Sette 270Wi.
