The well-named Virtuoso will provide the grinding performance your fine beans deserve. With a choice of 40 distinct grind settings, you can produce the ideal coffee particle size for your coffee maker, from drip to espresso and all at the lower RPM settings needed to avoid heating the grind.
The Virtuoso is built ruggedly, yet with those classic Italian lines, making it a great addition to your kitchen. Solidly stable, the grinder is relatively quiet in part due to the lower motor speed, operating at a third of the RPM of many other competitors. The motor offers the power to smoothly handle all types of beans.
Grind settings can be quickly chosen and will remain stable, day after day. This is the device for the serious coffee drinker who seeks the commercial quality grinding performance of conical burrs.
