Mark Wise (quality: 6.0) 10.24.2010 Rating: 4.2
Bottom Line: $$$ every two years for either a new grinder or shipping/repairs!?  You gotta be kidding me.

Oana D (quality: 6.0) 06.12.2007 Rating: 5.0

Aloka Rajiv (quality: 6.0) 10.04.2007 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: A good mid-priced burr grinder.
Craig Kelliher (quality: 6.0) 10.10.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Best price performer on the market.  Solid build, consistent results, stable weight, easy adjustability. Compact, handsome, tough.  Kinda like Brad Pitt.
Paul Wood (quality: 6.1) 05.22.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: More than a steal if you get it at the refurbished price from Baratza.
A C (quality: 6.3) 12.21.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good grinder for the money but a bit messy.
Frederick Schechter (quality: 6.3) 09.02.2006 Rating: 1.2
Bottom Line: Do not buy this machine! We have been Beta-testers for Baratza. If you must buy it or one of its off-shoots, call Baratza and ask for the new "SWEET" machine!!
Rui Rebelo (quality: 6.3) 08.27.2010 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: This grinder lasted 6 years. It's vinyl/plastic parts brake too easily. I gave up on fixing them. Will buy a different grinder.
Roy Mongiovi (quality: 6.5) 09.04.2006 Rating: 2.0
Bottom Line: Save your $200.  You can get a whirly blade grinder that's just as bad as the Virtuoso for a lot less money.
Larry Benjamin (quality: 6.5) 06.17.2013 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: 10 Rating Across The Board
Patrick King (quality: 6.5) 11.18.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: For home once adjusted, it is primo.
Alan Webster (quality: 6.7) 03.01.2009 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: Takes the grind out of buying a grinder
Michael Ventura (quality: 6.8) 03.30.2009 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: With a little "fine tuning" per Barratza instruction - this machine will provide a very fine expresso grind.  Also great for drip and French press.
Howard Pierson (quality: 7.0) 03.08.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: This is a great grinder for its niche, one can get better, but you will have to pay more, and be seriously addicted to Barista quality espresso.
Antonius De Korte (quality: 7.0) 08.21.2007 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder for the money, at least for drip.
