TESTED: Baratza Virtuoso Grinder Matches High End Grinder at 1/10 The Price
The NY Times tested the Baratza Virtuoso grinder ($229) against the Mahikonig EK43 grinder ($2700) and found that there was virtually no difference in the resulting coffee grind:
Shocking indeed. The single biggest improvement you can make in your coffee making experience is to grind fresh beans every time you brew coffee. We have long been fans of the Baratza grinder line and we are pleased to see that an independent review that shows you can get barista results at a reasonable price.
