A great cup of coffee starts with the proper grind, you can’t go wrong with a Baratza Maestro Plus grinder for all your home brewing methods! To order visit our Retail Store using the links to the right or just click on the text below to be taken directly to our listing.
The Maestro Plus™ is based on the very popular Maestro™ grinder. The Maestro Plus™ includes all the winning features of the Maestro™, plus some extras that increase its versatility and ease of use. The Maestro Plus™ includes a 60 second timer, a front mounted pulse button and a brushed-satin metal base. The Maestro Plus™ has double the weight of the Maestro™ which gives it a rock-solid feel and increased stability.
The original Maestro Plus™ was introduced in 2004. In March 2007 it was upgraded to include an innovative calibration system, new powerful DC motor and other improvements.
Detailed Product Features:
German made conical burrs
The Maestro Plus™ uses the same 40 mm conical burrs it has always used. Conical burr grinders are exceptional at producing consistent grinds from very fine to very course.
Grind Coffee for Any Brewing Method
There are many coffee grinders on the market. However, few have the ability to grind fine enough for a professional espresso machine and course enough for a French press coffee maker. The Maestro Plus™ has 40 steps of adjustment. Choose the perfect setting by turning the bean hopper to the desired position.
Commercial grinders have a calibration system to ensure that the grinder will grind fine enough for espresso and has the range to grind course enough for press pot. Now this feature is available in a grinder designed for home use. An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. The grinders are calibrated when they are manufactured to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary the grinders can be user calibrated.
A 240 watt DC motor is replacing the current AC motor. The DC motor is twice as powerful as the current motor and turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
Special Gear Reduction
The Maestro Plus™ uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reducers to slow the spinning of the burr to 450 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
Timers switch and Pulse button
The Maestro Plus™ has a sixty second timer, with segmented graphics, for easily repeatable grind times. It also has a front mounted pulse button that manually controls the on/off function. This is nice if you wish to grind a small amount of coffee for espresso.
Pulse button makes Espresso Easy
If you have an espresso machine, you will enjoy the convenience of being able to grind directly into the filter basket for your machine. After you remove the coffee grounds bin, you can insert your filter basket (portafilter) directly under the dispensing chute to collect the coffee as it is being dispensed. You can push the pulse button with your thumb while holding the filter basket for true one hand operation.
Service & Support
One year warranty. If your grinder has a problem we will see if we can resolve it over the website or phone or will promptly send a replacement grinder and a return tag for your old one.

About this Coffee:
Guatemalan coffees are some of the most amazing fragrant and aromatic coffees in the world. The natural shade and jungle of the Guatemalan highlands are the perfect environment for the bourbon botanical variety of arabica (a spontaneous variety of the original typical), which lends itself to a very nice and very natural full cup. Antigua is Guatemala’s oldest and most famous coffee growing region. The magnificent volcanoes of Agua, Acatenango, and Fuego enclose this valley. Fuego lives up to its name (fuego means fire in Spanish) by spewing forth volcanic ash continuing to add to the rich soil of the area. Antiguan cups are nice bodies, full-on bright coffees with spice. There is a reason this region is so loved and sought out by the coffee connoisseur.

We will be closed Nov 27
UPS and Spee Dee Delivery are not shipping Friday, we have decided that we will close on the 27th also. We will be roasting on Monday and Wednesday. Shipping Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
We are recommending that any roasted coffee wanted, should be ordered for Mondays roasting. We will roast and ship on Wed also, but keep in mind the long weekend, we don’t think UPS will be running any trucks between cities, so the coffee will be setting in a warehouse or truck all weekend.

About this Coffee:
CACVRA, or Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Valle Rio Apurimac was established in 1969 as a means of uniting cocoa and coffee growers in the Apurimac River Valley. This picturesque river valley unites the two growing regions of Ayacucho and Cuzco. The town of San Francisco lies directly on the Apurimac River and spans a bridge connecting the two regions. San Francisco also is the home of CACVRA’s main offices, cocoa receiving warehouse, and coffee cupping facility.
Coffee for Christmas Program
Our Coffee Barn is starting a fund to ship coffee to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. For each $5 we will roast, grind and mail a pound of coffee to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are sending the coffee to Wisconsin and Minnesota National Guard units deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The coffee will ship around the first week of December.
We now have Donate Buttons on the main pages of the site and a listing in almost every coffee category on both the retail and wholesale stores.
