Virtuoso Coffee Grinder detailed descriptions:
Precise, commercial-quality burrs:
Manufactured in Italy, the Virtuoso's burrs are of the same material and durability as the industry's highest-quality line of commercial conical burr coffee grinders. The burrs rotate slowly minimizing the heat in the beans, to preserve the flavor.
Innovative burr calibration system:
The range of grind and the accuracy of the settings is truly impressive. The Virtuoso has 40 distinct settings of grind from Espresso to French Press. An innovative calibration system virtually eliminates grind variation and ensures identical performance from each grinder. Furthermore the Virtuoso ring burr is supported on three points, providing a stable platform for a more accurate grind. Whether in commercial, semi-professional or personal applications, exact grind is imperative to a high-quality extraction and, therefore, a better cup of coffee!
The Virtuoso boasts an enhanced anti-static design, which minimizes messy coffee dust. While no coffee grinder is completely dust-free, the Virtuoso sets a new standard for minimal dust in this class of coffee grinder.
The powerful, high torque DC motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permitting long grinding duty-cycles without the motor overheating. For ultimate protection, the circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, termal cutoff switch.
The coffee powder is tightly controlled in the grinding chamber for trouble-free operation of the grinder.
Attractive top casting:
Primarily an aesthetic attribute, the additional weight of the top casting increases the stability of the grinder. It also provides further sound and vibration isolation making for a quieter, smoother-running coffee grinder.
