The Drive Coffee Grinder
We started with the best home coffee grinder, the Baratza Virtuoso, and made it better.
Manufactured in Europe, the Virtuoso’s 40 mm conical burrs grind coffee at 1.5 to 2.4 g/sec., depending on the setting. What these exceptional grinders have become famous for is that they can do a very uniform grind, with a distinct lack of “fines” (overly ground coffee) across its grinding range. The Baratza Virtuoso is exceptional for drip, manual brewing methods, and French Press, and capable of Espresso as well. The durable conical burrs feature a precision mounting system and will remain sharp for many years.
At Drive Coffee, each machine is disassembled, carefully prepped, and then finished with multiple layers of automotive paint and clear coat to achieve a true automotive finish, worthy of the Concours lawn. The entire process is done by hand, by a skilled artist, more accustomed to working on show cars and custom motorcycles. The machine is a true art piece that is sure to take your kitchen, office, garage, or workshop to the next level, serve as a conversation piece for years to come, especially when combined with the DBS 1.
Care and Longevity - With proper care, each machine should last many years. Care for the finish as you would a special car, using premium automotive detailing supplies. Use an automotive wax base coat 1-2x per year to protect from water spots, stains, and splashes and use a high-quality waterless wash and detail spray for regular cleaning.
