Product Description

Size: 1 Grinder | Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, the Encore's 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: In 2012, Baratza introduced the second generation Gearbox (GB 2.0). With GB 2.0, Baratza has significantly increased the strength and durability of the drive transmission while decreasing noise.

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.

Grinds 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 450 RPM. The electronic speed controller is adjustable from 405 to 495 RPM in the event that specific user conditions require modification of the speed. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder.

Worth the money if you want to upgrade to a conical burr grinder.
MacConeghey
The grind is consistent though it can get a little clumpy depending on how fine you set it and how oily a bean you're grinding.
Jazzguitarist
The hopper is made out of thin, flimsy plastic, and I was not surprised that it could easily be cracked.

*** Final Update***
I have now been using this grinder for close to 2 years. I have also purchased a Vario-W in order to grind by weight as I thought that would help with my consistency while making espresso; however, I will be honest, I now use the Vario for Drip and Press and use the Encore exclusively for espresso. I'm sure the Vario would work just as well (probably better) but I have found the right setting, tamp pressure, etc that makes the coffee I like using the Encore, so why mess with a good thing? I mention that for the benifit of those thinking this might not be a good espresso grinder. While I am aware that there are other pro-sumer models available, this one has been great. It does not have a large range of usable settings for espresso, but with varying tamp pressure, you should be able to get what you are looking for. A quick story about Baratza's customer support: a few months ago I noticed that my grind was suddenly too course and my shots were flowing way to fast. Since the grinder was well outside of its one-year warrany, I took it apart and found that the insides had been severely damaged. I had just moved form Washington State to Alabama and I am sure the damage was due to the poor packing and handling my goods received from our movers. (A story for another day). Anyway, as I mentioned somewhere below in one of my earlier reviews, Baratza sells pieces to replace your grinder should you need them. I needed a new ring assembly that holds the actual grinder teeth in place (consisting of several pieces) and even a new internal housing to remount the motor as some of the mounts had been broken (probably from the movers throwing my things).

After exhaustive research on grinders under 200 bucks I pulled the trigger on this one. I did not want a noisy high rpm grinder and was pleasantly surprised at how low the rpm level is and the corresponding lack of noise this grinder makes.
A very nice size (small footprint on counter)and can grind just as well for a twelve cup coffee maker or pulse grind into your portafilter with excellent results.
Also, not much coffee gets left behind in the shoot and what does collect is easy to whisk away with the provided brush.
I also own and have used daily a Kitchen AidKitchenAid Pro Line Series Burr Coffee Mill, Onyx Black for the last several years that works well enough for drip grind and is a work horse to be sure,however even with new replaced burrs just doesn't cut it for espresso.
My Daughter just got a Bodum BistroBodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder, Blacklast Christmas that actually produces a very high quality grind not unlike the Encore, but just not the same volume and probably not as durable.
This is a well built grinder with a high quality grind and lots of grind options at a very reasonable price.

With "Baratza" being a high-priced coffee grinder name, this model was supposed to be a value. I was hoping for a bit more savings with this Taiwan manufactured model, but it's a bit overpriced to my standards. I grind specifically for a French press, and a setting somewhere around "22-24" gave the best grind for pressed coffee. After the initial cleaning, I've used about 3 tbsp. of minute rice once a week to clean the grinder so that I don't have to take it apart. The grind is very uniform, and each cup of coffee has the least amount of "sludge" left in the bottom of the cup, less so than any other grinder I've used. This model is relatively quiet and I've been using it for about one month. If you use coffee beans that are very oily, you may have to help them along in the hopper. For a standard french press, I fill the bean hopper until I can't see the little round burr-guard. Every time, this amount makes for a perfect cup of pressed coffee. I've ground everything from $27.00 per lb. Kona, to cheap USDA certified organic bulk-bag coffees from Costco. This grinder actually does a better job than our local coffee roasting companies here in Alaska. The grinder won't plug the french press with overly fine coffee grinds.

I have been thinking about a conical burr grinder for months. Read lot's of reviews of different products and finally settled on this one. (Price was a biggie!) I was using a blade grinder for years, grinding 3-4 days worth of beans at a time. This is my first burr grinder and I have to say it's AWESOME by comparison. The noise is less than my blade grinder. The ease of use is much better mostly because I can throw all the beans I intend to grind in the bin, whereas in my old one I had to fill/dump 2 or 3 times. Mess is no worse, and maybe better. I have not had it long enough to need to clean it, but I don't think it will be a problem. And I had to clean my blade grinder too, so it does not scare me at all. Fit's under my cabinets, so it's great there. You are supposed to grind a quarter pound of beans then discard to initiate the machine. It came with a little bag of coffee that I used. I tried the finest grind, the coarsest and medium grind. All came out beautifully accurate and even. MUCH more evenly than my blade grinder which is why I got it in the first place. I am just beginning to experiment with the exact size of grind for my drip maker and coffee press. Some comments I read complained about not having a timer and it doesnt, but I am used to that from my other grinder and didn't expect to set and forget anyway. Maybe more important to someone grinding lot's more at a time. The only CON I want to mention is the bin has little plastic tabs that you line up to click it onto the machine...they look a little flimsy and maybe easy to break. So, I have to be careful is all.
Bottom line...I can't really compare this to other conical burr grinders as this is my first, but I don't see a thing wrong with this. Compared to what I was used to with my blade grinder....
