Overview

Back to Top

With the Baratza Virtuoso Preciso, micro adjustments let you fine tune the grind for optimal results when brewing espresso. Like its predecessor, the Virtuoso, this model has 40 grind settings. However, with the addition of 11 micro adjustments, you’ll be able to tweak fineness levels in between each of the 40 settings to adjust your grind. Alternating between French-press coffee and espresso (and everything in between) has never been easier.

The Baratza Virtuoso Preciso is built to perform like a commercial grinder. It features 40mm conical burrs, hardened for a lifetime of reliability. You’ll have the option of activating the grinder using a push-button control or a timer; the versatile Virtuoso Preciso can grind a single shot or large batches with ease. This unit features a 5oz ground coffee container with anti-static device as well as a PortaHolder that allows for hands-free operation. Despite its sophisticated capabilities, the Virtuoso is exceedingly user friendly, making it ideal for the home.

Features

Back to Top

40 Grind Settings and 11 Micro Adjustments

The detail-oriented Virtuoso Preciso allows you to choose from 40 grind settings to achieve the desired coffee fineness and consistency. It has also been upgraded to include 11 micro adjustments for increased user control. Of the 11 micro adjustments, each range is equal to one step of the macro settings (40 grind settings).

Conical Burrs

The commercial-grade 40mm conical burrs have been designed allow the grind to drop directly into the coffee container to prevent waste. The Virtuoso Preciso’s outer burr can be easily removed, without tools or specialty equipment, for hassle-free maintenance.

Push Button and Timer Operations

A push button, located on the front of the machine, lets you activate grinding operations. If you wish to do other things while the Virtuoso Preciso is grinding, you can take advantage of the integrated timer; just set it to the desired grinding duration and the machine will automatically stop once the cycle is over.

Gear Reduction Motor

The Virtuoso Preciso has a 480-watt gear reduction motor that operate the burrs at 450rpm. The slow speed minimizes heat transfer during the grinding process to preserve coffee flavor and aroma.

Bean Hopper and Coffee Container

The 8oz bean hopper can be removed for simple cleaning and maintenance. The Virtuoso Preciso also has a 5oz ground coffee container. You can grind into the container, which holds enough grounds for a full pot of drip coffee, or remove it to grind directly into a portafilter.

Antistatic System

The Virtuoso Preciso features an Antistatic System for mess-free operation. This system is designed to keep you from ending up with coffee dust during the grinding process; it will also prevent the grind from sticking to the internal components of the machine.

Housing

This versatile grinder has a durable, scratch resistant body that is built to withstand everyday use. The top and base of the machine is made of nickel-plated metal.

Grinding Settings

I recently bought the Baratza Virtuoso grinder, along with the Rancilio Silvia. I'm having a difficult time getting the ideal shot of espresso. I've read that your shot should take 20-30 seconds to pour, and right now mine is pouring out much faster. What would I set the micro and macro settings...

Question by Tim G.

I'm in the process of replacing my Breville 830 with the 840"Infuser". (the 830 has been having issues and Breville is replacing it) Can you recommend a grinder under $500 that will grind oily beans (Peets or SBUX Espresso Roast) fine enough to pull a great shot of espresso without getting...
mjackson aswered:
I would say the Rancilio Rocky, The Baratza Preciso or the Vario in the price range you are looking at. Any really dark oily bean will mean more frequent cleaning. I would suggest using this product to help keep your grinder burrs working properly -... more
DanielCulver aswered:
I have had the Gaggia MDF for several years, and yes, I go through periods when I like dark, oily beans. The MDF will grind quite well, as fine as you'd like. Occasionally you will have to remove the reservoir cover and tap the beans a little to ensure they are falling into the grinder shoot.... more

Question by Renee L.

I just purchased the Preciso a few weeks ago. So far I have only used it for french press. For the first couple of weeks, I was having the best coffee I have ever had. The only way I can explain it is that it tasted exactly like fresh ground coffee smells. Suddenly, the coffee started tasting...
techkathy aswered:
Try a different bag of coffee. Small batch coffee can vary from one batch to the next.
DanielCulver aswered:
Also, your water can change taste from time to time if you use a waters softener, or your supplier does.

Question by Raymond S.

Hi, I just received a Gaggia Classic for Christmas. Very excited, but the machine has exposed the shortcomings of my old Solis 166. So now I have a $300 budget for a grinder and I am willing to sacrifice (a little) grind quality in exchange for durability. Ideally, I'd like to use the new grinder...
A aswered:
Raymond, I know some people take the Virtuoso apart to adjust the grind settings within the burr set to allow for a finer range of grinds. Out of the box though, I have found that the settings it comes set up with works fine for a machine like the Gaggia Classic, and even the Rancilio Silvia.... more
