The Virtuoso+ is the latest upgrade to the Virtuoso - which has been a mainstay of the coffee industry for several years now and here is a further improved version of this incredibly popular grinder.
The Virtuoso+ replaces the Virtuoso's analog timer with a digital timer in the front of the machine. The timer can now be programmed in 1/10ths of a second to deliver your desired coffee dose.
The Virtuoso+ lives up to its name by providing technical skill, 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. The grinder comes with a convenient portafilter holder allowing grinding directly into your portafilter.
How about a French Press? The Virtuoso can handle that too, with a particle size uniformity that gives you consistency from cup to cup. In fact, the Virtuoso is so consistent at both the coarse and fine ends of the grind range that we consider it to be in a class all by itself ' and so do many of the micro- and specialty-roasters who swear by it.
The secret to the Virtuoso's 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 Virtuoso+'s exterior is just as finely tuned as its interior. With a convenient front-mounted display and the timer dial just below it which also doubles as the grind button. The digital timer makes it easy to replicate the ideal dose each time.
With the Virtuoso+, the look goes beyond merely functional. A sculptured metal top and base give this grinder an expensive, elegant image that adds a sense of class and quality to kitchen counters and coffee shop workspaces alike. When you want it all, the Virtuoso is the grinder that will get you there with function, elegance, and style.
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. The electronic speed controller is adjustable from 405 to 495 RPM in the event that specific user conditions require modification of the speed. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
40mm Conical Burrs
Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuoso's 40 mm conical burrs can produce 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.
New Digital Timer
The new Digital Timer on the Virtuoso+ allows for percise adjustment - in one-tenth of a second increments. Ensuring exact repeatability every time.
Whether your are grinding for espress, french press or pour-over, the Virtuoso+ has your covered. The grinder comes with a grounds bin to collect coffee grounds for manual brewing.
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.
40 grind adjustment settings
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 250 to 1200 microns.
Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
