Knob falls off.
Awdio Kreep
Burr grinders give you a _much_ more even grind, and they are also much nicer - that's why this grinder is so much more expensive than other blade grinders.

I have been using this grinder for over a year now on a daily basis.

Since I have only had the Virtuoso for three months I will not discuss the long-term quality. Because I use it primarily for press pot, drip and small espresso batches I was not looking to get a solid consumer grinder, like the more expensive Rancilio Rocky or Mazzer Mini.

Previously I have owned a Starbucks Barista (the Solis verson, not the newer Saeco Titan verson) and the Capresso Infinity 560 Black. The Barista had a long and happy life, and after performing the hack (see coffeegeek.com), made great coffee and pretty good espresso. The Capresso was excellent for drip & press coffee, but only adequate for espresso. I would happily recommend each of these for people that just want a pretty solid cup of Joe, and do not mind it being slightly heated in the process. The Capresso was still running solidly, so do not infer it died early (it cheerfully grinds my wife's flax seeds very well now), I just wanted something better for my espresso shots.

After briefly considering the Gaggia MDF I looked at the Virtuoso, mainly for three, important, reasons.

First I was very happy with my Solis/Starbucks grinder, it lasted for over 10 years of heavy use. The hack allowed it to make good espresso. Baratza has been involved with selling the Solis products, and are the designers of the Maestro and Maestro Plus grinder (yes, thats right they are THEIR machines, not Solis). After talking to a few of the locally operated coffee shops, invaluable advice, I was able to learn more about the company.

Second, many of the negative reviews were early in the introduction of the product. What I appreciated, and what the shop owners told me about, is the serious approach to resolving any issues the product has and updating the product itself.

I have had this grinder since March 2006. It grinds magnificently and is extremely well built. It is by far the cleanest grinder (no spewed grinds everywhere) I have had, and I have had MANY. I recently had an issue were a small rock somehow got into the grinder and caused the gears to strip. One call to customer service and they mailed me a replacement no questions asked! Fantastic!!!

As for the negative review prior to this- File it as uninformed. The grind catcher fits into the machine very snug, this is a good thing because it prevents the grinds from flying all over your countertop. The motor is very powerful (unless you try to grind rocks, see above) and grinds the beans with a low pitched growl. This is a terrific grinder with unparalleled customer support. I highy recommend this grinder.

I have had this grinder for over a year. It provides a very uniform grind over a wide range of settings. Recently, I had to adjust the grind calibration settings back to original spec by removing the hood & adjusting one screw. Instructions are on the web site, no problem. The grinder grinds again as when new. Quibbles: 1. When turned to the maximum setting, the timer does not keep the grinder grinding long enough to produce enough coffee for a twelve cup maker. You have to turn the timer again for more coffee. 2. Like a number of burr grinders I have used, the beans occasionally hang up in the feeder so that the grinder is running but no beans are being ground. This is more likely to happen with large and/or "candy" finished dark roast beans. Cleaning helps but does not eliminate this problem. Turning the grind adjustment ring to the max while the grinder is running clears up the stoppage, but it is an annoying glitch. Still, produces great coffee.

I use my Virtuoso for drip brewing and for French Press. It quickly chews my coffee beans precisely the way both devices demand; fine-medium for drip coffee, and course-medium to medium-course for French Press. Great coffee flavor all starts with your grinder. Works just ducky. Very pleased!

If you are looking for a quality, durable grinder for fine-side grind for drip, vacuum pot, open pot, or pour-over coffee it is perfect. If you need a uniform course grind for your French press/Press pot you have just struck gold. My Technivorm loves it. And so does my coarser-grind loving Frieling French Press.

I am writing a book on the best goods out there under the radar, and I write a blog on the same subject: thegoodstuffreviews.blogspot.com. The Virtuoso is recommended as THE coffee bean grinder for Everything but Espresso, the title of a must-buy book by Scott Rao. For espresso you might need a finer, or different grind than the Virtuoso provides. For espresso you might want to step up to the full-blown Baratza Preciso, or even better, look at the Vario or Vario W model.

Sweet Maria's Coffee in the West and Terroir Coffee in the East, excellent sources for anything coffee, both purveyors of green coffee beans for home roasting, along with roasted beans and coffee machines for all methods of brewing, tell me that the Virtuoso is the perfect match for Technivorm and BonaVita drip brewers (two of only four drip coffee brewers to be Certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America). This grinder would also be the perfect match for Behmor's new, innovative BraZen drip brewer.

The Virtuoso is the most often recommended grinder for French Press, especially this 586 model with the Preciso burr set. I agree.
