I've been using this grinder for about five years both to grind espresso and brewed coffee. Then today it suddenly stopped working properly.
It's making an uneven, unusual noise, and grinding very finely. The grind isn't dropping into the hopper, but staying in burrs, then finally drops out in clumps. I've cleaned it, but no difference. Any thoughts?

mjackson ♦ Mitchell,
I am sorry about your grinder. It may be a few things such as a broken adjustment collar, needs cleaning or may need a new drive gear. Check here to do a more complete troubleshooting and how to fix it. https://www.baratza.com/troubleshooting/

I like to make cold brew coffee with a coarse grind. I use a $20.00 krups grinder and the consistency of the coffee grinded is lacking. Would the Baratza give me consistency through out the whole grinded coffee? Would this be overkill and something less expensive would also serve this purpose?

mjackson ♦ Darin,
This grinder would certainly be an upgrade and give you a very consistent grind. I would not consider it overkill as it would prove to be a good investment. If You are looking for something less expensive you may want to look at the Capresso Infinity Burr grinder. But I do think the Encore will make you happy for your ground coffee needs.

Will this grinder work well with a Gaggia Baby Class?

mjackson ♦ Michael,
It will work as the Gaggia now comes with both a traditional basket and a pressurized basket. So it will work with one of the baskets. Here is some more information on the pressurized baskets. http://www.wholelattelove.com/videos.cfm?playvidID=345. You will have a very good system for a reasonable amount of money.

I've been planning to upgrade my espresso equipment to Rancilio Silvia/Rocky duo. My not-too-coffee-savvy friends gave me an Encore as a surprise gift (if I knew, I would advise them not to do it). Would you suggest to try the Encore with Silvia, or should I definitely exchange it for a Rocky or Virtuoso level grinder, as Silvia would not perform appropriately with Encore? Thanks!

mjackson ♦ Mark,
It is hard to say no to a gift. It may work. I would try it. It will work best if you don't use a dark oily bean. I say may and after you try it you may want to upgrade. The chances of working are not great and I also think you may be disappointed if you decide to keep it.

Quick question... I like to change my bean selection from day to day. With my current blade grinder, I just measure what I need for espresso (about two scoops) and then whirr away... I notice this product has a hopper. Think there will be any mechanical issue if I only load it up with the couple scoops that I need each day? Thanks!

Mike Russo ♦ David...Thank you for your interest in the Baratza Encore Conical Burr Grinder. You should have no trouble putting a small amount of beans in the hopper a grinding daily. Thanks.

I just got a Rancilio Silvia. Do you think the Baratza Encore would be a good grinder to go with it? if not, would you recommend the new Virtuoso or the Precisio? Thanks.

Mike Russo ♦ Sofia...Thank you for your interest in the Baratza grinders. The Baratza Virtuoso Preciso Coffee Grinder will be by far the best choice to use with your Rancilio Silvia. Thanks.

Does this grinder handle dark/oily types of beans well? Is it versatile for use for drip/french pressed/espresso coffees?

mjackson ♦ Melanie,
It does work for all kinds of coffee. If you use a dark oily bean you may need to clean the grinder more often. I would suggest getting some Grindz by Urnex in order to keep it clean. I do like the grinder for the cost.

Are the burrs replaceable in this grinder? Every thing else about it seems to be about perfect for my Gaggia Baby Twin.
