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:

Picked a display model up at an Orlando, FL store. I live about an hour away from there, however they were happy to ship it to me for $10. Well worth it. Total with tax shipped $64.42. Should have it in a day or two. I'm a happy camper.

You can probably call any of there retail stores and have them ship to you. Google Search is great.

[QUOTE=jbviau;36648217]Ok, here you go: 9086836


Thanks, but none in my area. The employee did say that there were 2 in Citrus Park (Tampa) and one in The Mall at Millenia in Orlando. Good luck.

OK I am crying inside because this truly SD is happening Pre-Tax return. I have a burr grinder that is still working (but I was seriously planning on upgrading). Anyway, I am not getting this deal but before I made this decision I did some research.

The Item# is 9086836

A New York store apparently has 3 in stock and a Connecticut store has 2.

The cost to have it shipped here (Texas) was $10.50 plus tax $65.48 total.

The NY store phone# is 212-823-9750
The Conn. store is 203-221-8667

Good Luck!

This is an amazing deal. Hope my WS hasn't been raided yet! I can upgrade my Baratza Maestro and hand that down to my parents.

DE and Eastern PA seem tapped out now. Wonder if there are any more Virtuosos out there still?

New England tapped out- actually when I went into my local W&S last evening the guy looked in the system and said only 2 other stores had inventory showing more than 1 and gave me their numbers (neither had the item). In Retail, inventory is often off by 1 or 2, especially with such low numbers- he said (and I agree) odds are the only thing left in a store will be a display model by now. Apparently they have been OOS in the B&M for a while- not even an empty space on the shelf for them.

He also said W&S is having their inventory done this coming Monday- sounded like a corporate wide or region wide inventory - not uncommon in some chains.

Worth dropping in to a local if you are near, but otherwise seems like it's all but dead.

I'm interested in one if someone happens to find an extra in their local store.....

Don't forget you can have one shipped from further away for ~$10 if you manage to find one available.

what a deal but i am almost certain the cashiers are keeping it for the ebay sales.....

If you are in NASHVILLE, head over there, they have 2 in stock and their number is 615-292-5066

If you are able to pry it away from their hands, please buy one more for me...

Due to the weight of this small-but-solid grinder, I'll bet W-S could ship it to you directly for cheaper than a fellow SD'er could. Could be wrong though.

I just missed this deal at the W-S store at Columbus Circle NYC. Too bad I flew home yesterday. I tried calling but they ran out and the one in Nashville said they did not have any in stock.

Do you guys have any luck in finding it at any other stores?

this does not look like a decent unit.

they are normally $100 or so for these entry level burr grinders. I have one that I never use (bought a few yrs ago) and I use a $500 one now (moka livia) that was on close-out for well under $100.

the ones that dump into a bin (this one) are not my first choice. I prefer the doser types.
