Coffee geek → Baratza Virtuoso Grinder, Colin 2: Bottom Line: A nice heavy countertop grinder for dripRe... #coffee

This was an upgrade over a Baratza Maestro. SInce I made the purchase, it looks like the Maestro has been replaced by the "Encore" as the entry-level grinder in the Baratza line. After a year of daily use, I don't regret the extra $70 for the Virtuoso. It's heavier, which makes it a even quieter then the Maestro, less apt to go skittering around the counter, and just easier to use. It looks nicer. I use it for drip coffee. My complete ensemble is now a Behmor roaster, the Virtuoso, and a Technivorm. I'm happy with the results. Just gotta get around to gluing that knob on.
