New grinder from Baratza: Virtuoso Precisio $275 was created by brokemusician77
Just read this on the forums over at CG:

"Emailed Baratza today asking them for more information between maestro plus and virtuoso and was given this small nugget of info.


'In March we will be introducing a new grinder, the Virtuoso Preciso ($275).  It is a virtuoso with the addition of a micro adjustment.  

We feel that it will be a perfect home grinder.  Accurate enough to be a really good espresso grinder and yet easy to adjust for any style of coffee.

I probably should not have mentioned the Preciso, it will just make your decision harder.


Best wishes

Didn't see anything when I did a search so figured I would share the information."

Wish I'd have found this before shelling out all that cash for a Vario.

Fascinating - just checking with Baratza about this.

It'd be fun to do a shootout between the new Precisio and the Vario. Maybe they can send you a pre-production model.

From the CEO of Baratza moments ago...

"Baratza will soon introduce a new grinder, the Virtuoso Preciso,.  The Preciso is a Virtuoso with the addition of a Micro adjustment mechanism.
The full range of the Micro adjustment (11 positions)  is equal to one step in the Macro adjustment. This Micro adjustment combines the precise tuning ability of a stepless grinder with the ease of adjustability that the Virtuoso is famous for. The Preciso now moves the Virtuoso up-market to be a truly great espresso grinder while retaining all of the features that have made the Virtuoso our best selling grinder for the last 3 years.  The Preciso uses the same conical burrs and timer switch as the Virtuoso. Available March 2010."

Had I known this three weeks ago, I would have made do with my Virtuoso instead of shelling out cash I didn't really have on a Vario. My only real complaint with the Virtuoso was lack of adjustability for espresso. This solves that problem and comes in almost $200 cheaper than a Vario. RATS!!!
