Baratza Encore Overview

The Baratza Encore is beloved among coarse brew method enthusiasts everywhere; widely hailed as the best burr grinder in its class. Its modern engineered materials and precision manufacturing methods make the Encore reliably deliver consistent grounds at an incredible value.

Features and Performance

The Encore features a weighted base, 40 degrees of fineness, a second generation gearbox, efficient DC motor, and a combination of electric and gear speed reducers to slow the burr revolutions to 450 RPM keeping the grounds cool and avoiding static build up. The updated gearbox is designed to be robust, quiet, and safe, as the Encore will automatically trigger a thermal cut-off switch if foreign objects enter the burrs.

Its 40mm conical burrs are held in place with a precision mounting system to provide a steady platform for accurate grinding from coarse all the way to fine. The new burrs are so efficient that even at the low rotating speed of 450 RPM, they grind a typical espresso dose in 7 seconds. Plus, they’re removable with no tools, making cleaning them very easy. As a grinder that runs the gamut of brew methods at an unbeatable price, the Baratza Encore easily comes out on the top of the heap.

Using the Baratza Encore is simple. The grind can be adjusted within a range of 250 to 1200 microns by turning the 8 oz hopper. Once it’s dialed in, grinding can be done either by holding the button on its face, or turning the dial on and off once the desired amount of grounds are reached. The Encore’s motor spins the burrs at a low speed of 450 RPM to ensure there is no heat or static build up while grinding. Grounds are dispensed directly into the 5 oz container with no spillage at all, a wow feature on any grinder.

If you’re grinding for espresso, an optional portaholder is available for grinding directly into a portafilter. If you’d prefer even greater precision, the Encore can be fitted with the Baratza Esatto scale, which turns it into a dose-by-weight grinder, capable of accurately dispensing a preset weight within +/- 0.2 grams.

Why You Should Get It

The Baratza Encore is an excellent coarse brew method coffee grinder, or entry level espresso grinder for a single boiler or pressurized portafilter espresso machine. If you like the Encore, but want a step up in aesthetics and functionality, the Virtuoso features metal accents and timed grinding; for electronic controls, espresso-focused grinding, and a serious style upgrade, take a look at Baratza’s Sette line.

  • 40 Grind Settings

    The Baratza Encore has 40 stepped grind adjustments from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. Alternating between the different grind settings is easy; simply turn the bean hopper. The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns. An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind.

  • High Torque Motor

    The high-torque, direct-current motor results in seamless operation; since the burrs are operated at about 450 RPM, heat transfer and static are kept to a minimum. In addition to heat and static reduction, the low RPM lets the grinder remain quiet and unobtrusive. The motor also features an automatically resetting, thermal cut-off switch for safe operation.

  • 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. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.

  • Gearbox

    The Encore features the next generation of gearbox design, that, along with a redesigned drive shaft, motor mounting plate, and bushings, incorporates a new drive gear made of 15% glass-filled thermoplastic, which is quieter than the prior metal gear, wears better and is more shock resistant. This creates a very robust, yet quiet grinding performance.
