Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, the Preciso’s 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4 g/sec. depending on the setting. But what really sets the Preciso burrs apart is that these burrs can do a very uniform grind, with a distinct lack of fines across its grinding range. So the Preciso burrs are exceptional for espresso, drip, manual brewing methods and Press Pot.

Gearbox: In 2012, Baratza introduced the second generation Gearbox (GB 2.0). With GB 2.0, Baratza has significantly increased the strength and durability of the drive transmission while decreasing noise.

Grind Adjustment: Macro Adjust: Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. Micro Adjust: 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.

Grinds Left in Grinder: To maximize freshness, the Preciso minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.

Brewing Methods: The Preciso is exceptional for espresso and manual pour brewing methods.

Motor: A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles.

Calibration: An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind.

Speed Control: With unique speed control, the Preciso uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 500 RPM.

Portaholder: The Preciso comes with the Portaholder which permits hands-free grinding into an espresso portafilter and makes clean up a snap.

Best grinder for pour-over, French press, or CafeSolo The expert reviewers say this may be the best grinder for other than espresso anywhere near its price-point. I researched the heck out of grinders under $400 and chose this one. I am very pleased — it has lived up to the hype. I prepare coffee using a medium-coarse (not exactly road gravel but significantly finer than French press) grind and an Eva Solo CafeSolo brewer. This grinder was a significant step up from my KitchenAid Pro Line and helped me extract a much better result (more…

Very unreliable, get something else. Not a good product because it breaks. Shortly after I bought it the handle on the timer started to fall of. Later the grinder stopped spinning. The motor would work, but the grinder part would slip and not able to grind. I had it replaced by the store. The replacement piece did exact same thing. I was ok with the timer handle fall off all the time. But the grinder again broke after less than two years of use. Also, the fines coursenss setting overtime became not as fine as at the beginning. I…

Fantastic machine, but requires occasional maintenance I’ve had this machine for about 6-7 months, during which time it has broken once.¬†
