Settings allow for espresso through french press grinds. Relatively quiet and easy to use.
Negative Product Points
The product's marketing description boasts an anti-static feature that cuts down on coffee dust. That's a a bit deceiving. Sure I'm not cleaning stray coffee grounds off my counter top but I AM cleaning A LOT of stray grounds off the outside of the grinder, the inside of the receiving chute, and just about anything that comes in contact with the grinder such as the coffee scoop.
The Virtuoso grinder was recommended to me by the sales rep when I bought my Rancillio Silvia. I was set to by the Rocky grinder but enjoy French Press and that model didn't allow for that course a grind. The price was right and I liked the looks of it.
So far I am impressed by its ease of use. The manual's directions are clear and concise. Cleaning is quick and easy especially when using Urnex's Grindz. The removable chute that collects the grinds is stable enough to stand alone when scooping them out.
My only complaint is the static electricity that turns the coffee grounds into super magnetically charged particles. They stick to everything that comes into contact with the receiving chute creating a mess and quite a bit of wasted coffee.
I feel luck that Seattle's Visions Espresso is right in my back yard! Friendly, knowledgable staff and excellent inventory.
