The Baratza Encore is the ultimate entry - level grinder for your craft coffee journey - the key difference to the taste in your cup.
It provides consistent grinds for brew methods from espresso to French Press and everything in between. Straightforward controls make your daily routine simple and easy. Load up your hopper with your favourite beans, turn the hopper to the grind setting you want, switch the Baratza Encore on and let the precision conical burrs deliver consistent, quality ground coffee every time.
Beyond a great coffee-making experience, the encore lets you explore new coffee flavours - with 40 individual grind settings, you can find the perfect grind size for all brewing methods.
The hopper can hold 8 oz. of whole beans, and the clear grounds bin has a fill line to indicate how much to grind. The Encore is intentionally designed to fit nicely under most kitchen cabinets without sacrificing power or quality and to bring value to your daily grind.
Note: The use of oily beans in this grinder can cause the grinder to clog over time. We recommend using beans that are less oily. If you use oily beans the grinder will need to be cleaned more often to avoid clogging.
Burrs. Manufactured in Europe, the Encores 40 mm conical burrs will grind for many styles of coffee. Conical burrs grinders are exceptional at producing consistent grinds from very fine to very coarse as well as being durable and will remain sharp for many years.
Gearbox. The Encore utilizes a simple and efficient direct drive gear reduction transmission to move power from the DC motor to the rotating cone burr. A thermal overload cutout protects the motor from overheating due to excessive use - remember, these grinders are designed to grind a dose at a time for home use!
Grind Adjustment. Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.
Grounds left in grinder. To maximize freshness, the Encore minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
Brewing Methods. The Encore is a great grinder for manual brewing and espresso.
Motor. A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
Calibration. An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated.
Speed control. With unique speed control, the Encore uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 550 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
On-Off Switch. The Encore has an easy on-off switch.
Cleaning. Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.

Hmmmmm . . . .
Purchase was seamless - quick, efficient, great ECS price, extremely well-packaged. The grinder feels like it's good quality, the 'bin' slides in and out easily, the lid is only slightly awkward for small hands, and there's almost no static 'cling'. The grinder was a bit difficult to put together, as we had been afraid to use the pressure that was ultimately required. Suggested grinds for drip coffee were much too coarse to give any flavour! Tried progressively Fine-er and Fine-er and have ultimately left it on the 'Fine'-est grind possible. Our coffee tastes 'ok' but not as luscious as with our previous grinder. Our biggest complaint is the horrendous noise it makes. Almost painful. We'd like to leave the kitchen when it's grinding, but this model does not have an automatic shut off. Another big negative is the industrial-sized B.L.A.C.K. cord on this white appliance in our light-coloured kitchen - a 'feature' which was not noticeable in the product photos. If we'd purchased this Baratza Encore Grinder from a local store, we would definitely have returned it. But, it does the job, and I was too cheap and lazy to go to the effort/expense of making a return.
As promised, a serious "entry-level grinder"
A significant step up in grind consistency from the sub-$100 burr grinders I've tried.
Makes a Great Cup of Coffee!
Works well, creating a consistent uniform grind. The hopper is a little plasticky, the grind process is fairly quiet and overall I make a great cup of coffee with this grinder. Thanks.
Great product. Great service.
Works Well - still have to perfect grind settings for Chemex
ECS did an amazing job shipping the product and keeping me updated. I used to have a generic burr grinder (black and decker) before this.. and I find for a similar amount of beans, the Baratza Encore grinds slower (however more consistent) - still not found the perfect setting for my Chemex brew (suggestion was 20) but the taste is not quite there yet. Anyways 5 stars for the product. Thanks Ecs
