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:

Thanks to forum member EricBNC for the tip!

Probably OOS Nationwide. Fairly certain I got the last one. Customer Service gave me three locations that had 2 of them. Plenty show 1, but for many businesses, that's just a placeholder.

Umm, would have to check - actually don't remember. I want to say Tampa. The only other locations with two were in TN and NJ and they were both sold out.

By the way, here's the link to the CoffeeGeek thread you mentioned (http://coffeegeek.com/forums/coff...nes/515136). Check out the second post. The guy who hoarded 11 machines says you can contact him if you're really interested, so maybe he didn't put *all* of his Virtuosos on eBay at once. Guess he didn't want to drive the price down too much.
Did anyone have any luck contacting this guy?

Hmm, yeah, that's a bit too much of a mark-up.
