The Preciso is just as it sounds--a fine-tuned grinder with a micro-adjust system that can be dialed like a commercial grinder. This, coupled with a coffee throughput that is 2.4 grams/second, twice as fast as other 40mm conical burr grinders, makes the Preciso exceptional for espresso. In addition to featuring Baratza's popular 40-grind adjustment options, the Preciso adds a second micro-adjustment level that further divides each of the 40 steps into 11 distinct settings. This means you have infinitely more control over your espreso grind.
It doesn't stop there, of course; the Preciso has also gotten high marks from coffee experts as an exceptional grinder for the increasingly popular manual brew methods. The specially designed burrs give a precise grind with minimal fines for a sweet, balanced extraction.
Featuring the quality internal parts and external elements you've come to expect from Baratza, the Preciso is built with an efficient DC motor to keep your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 450 RPM, ensuring a smooth bean feed, and reducing noise, heat and static buildup.
The Preciso also comes equipped with our innovative PortaHolder, allowing you to grind your espresso hands-free, directly into the portafilter for quick and simple setup and cleanup.
Micro Grind Adjustment A secondary micro adjust lever further divides each of the 40 Macro positions into 11 distinct steps. These steps(10 microns each), enable you to precisely dial in the grind for the perfect shot.
Clean Design Designed for use in the home or office, the Virtuoso Preciso displays quality workmanship. The Virtuoso's beautiful finish make a grinder that looks great on your counter.
