Based on Baratza's most popular grinder, the Preciso adds extra precision and control to the great basic features of the Virtuoso. It retains the 40 grind adjustment steps of the Virtuoso, but a second micro adjustment lever further divides each of the 40 steps into 11 distinct settings. Smaller steps means you have more control over your espresso grind, enabling you to pull that perfect shot.
Operationally, the Preciso has the same timer and pulse button that the Virtuoso employs.
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.
The Virtuoso will help to keep your workstation clean with its enhanced anti-static design that keeps stray coffee grounds to a minimum. Easy to clean, the Virtuoso will maintain your coffee performance at a professional peak.
