The Virtuoso Grinder was introduced in Dec. 2005. The Virtuoso has many of the winning features of the Encore along with commercial grade components, higher performance and sleeker style. With the Virtuoso, it’s now easier than ever to make professional quality coffee, whether at the home, the office or your cafe.
In additional to all the great features of the Encore, the Virtuoso includes commercial grade conical burrs, a 480 watt DC motor, a new shape and a beautiful brushed-satin metal top.
Detailed Product Features:
Commercial Grade Conical Burrs
Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuoso+’s 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4g/sec. depending on the setting. But what really sets the Virtuoso+ burrs apart is that these burrs can do 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 French press. 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.
Grind Coffee For Any Brewing Method
There are many coffee grinders on the market. However, few have the ability to grind fine enough for a professional espresso machine and coarse enough for a press pot. The Virtuoso has 40 steps of adjustment. Choose the perfect setting by turning the bean hopper to the desired position. The grind range is from 200 to 1200 microns.
Commercial grinders have a calibration system to ensure that the grinder will grind fine enough for espresso and has the range to grind coarse enough for press pot. This feature is available in the Virtuoso. The grinders are calibrated when they are manufactured to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary the grinders can be user calibrated.
The powerful, high torque 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.
The Virtuoso+ utilizes a simple and efficient direct drive gear reduction transmission to move power from the DC motor to the rotating cone burr. A thermal overload cutout protects the motor from overheating due to excessive use – remember, these grinders are designed to grind a dose at a time for home use!
Unique Speed Control
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. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
The motor is controlled by a 40 second digital timer adjustable to the tenth of a second, that allows repeatable dosing.
Easy to Clean
One important and often overlooked task required of owning a good coffee grinder is routine cleaning. To clean the Virtuoso, just remove the coffee been hopper to expose the grinding chamber. At this point the outer ring burr simply lifts out. The entire grinding chamber can then be thoroughly cleaned in a few minutes.
