Deal Details

I just picked up the last 2 of these at my local Williams-Sonoma (Cross Keys location in Baltimore) for $49.99 each, which is a phenomenal price. Hopefully someone else will have the same good luck or at least find one for $79 or $99 (NB: the average retail price is $199.99). This will be highly YMMV, I expect.

I'd suggest calling first since the Baratza Virtuoso is out of stock online (http://www.williams-sonoma.com/pr...chRules-_-) and becoming very rare in B&M stores also.

W-S is changing up their grinder line and discontinuing these, but the grinder itself is still very much in production and will continue to be supported by the manufacturer. I know a few people who have had Virtuosos for years and love them. The grind is supposedly very consistent.

A few reviews/links for the curious:

I know, right? My thinking was that the title needed to mention coffee so people wouldn't think this was for spices or something. Maybe I should give SD'ers more credit. Wink
I don't know this for a fact...but, I've "heard" of people using coffee grinders for other things.

Fantastic price if you can find one. Burr grinders are the way to go if you are even half serious about grinding your own coffee. I wish there were more coffee equipment deals on SD.
Now someone go find me a La Marzocco GS/3 for $1000! Smilie

I finally stopped using my Mazzer Super Jolly for drip and "upgraded" my drip grinder to a Virtuoso two months ago. What a difference the Virtuoso made, a major improvement. Too bad I just spent $199.99 on this not long ago.

On the upside I called a William Sonoma where my sister lives to check the stock. The manager said they only had the floor model left and there was no box/warranty. As a result she took half off the price. So I was able get the grinder for $25!! Quite the slick deal, repped OP!

Think you must be looking at the wrong grinder or a different model.

for 'other' medicinal needs, a simple blade grinder is best.
