The Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder has some big shoes to fill. For the past few years, the Baratza Maestro and Baratza Maestro Plus have set the bar for quality coffee grinding at home. The Baratza Encore has evolved out of the Maestro and Maestro Plus to bring about even greater grinding capabilities at the same affordable price. With updated hardened steel burrs and a new gear box, the Encore grinder brings the capability of grinding for espresso to Baratza's introductory model. The Encore has retained the front pulse button featured on the Maestro Plus to allow for easy on-demand grinding, and reverted the side on/off switch to a multi-directional on/off rather than the previous timer knob. With the improvements of the updated burrs and Baratza's Gearbox 2.0, Baratza has once again provided an unprecedented combination of quality and affordability for home coffee drinkers everywhere.

Details:

  • Burrs: Updated 40mm hardened steel conical burrs
  • Grind Adjustment: 40 settings from fine to coarse allows a grind range of 250 to 1200 microns
  • Motor: A 450 RPM DC motor with gear speed reducer helps keep the beans cool while grinding. Gear speed reducer also reduces noise as well as heat and static build up. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting thermal cutoff switch.
  • Gearbox 2.0: Adds increased strength and durability of the drive transmission, all the while decreasing the noise output. The new gearbox includes a new drive shaft, motor mounting plate and bushings, as well as a new drive gear made of 15% glass filled thermo plastic. This thermo plastic is quieter than the prior metal gear, wears better, and is more shock resistant. During Baratza's testing of the Encore, stainless steel screws were thrown into the burrs, and in every case the motor/gear/burrs stopped immediately due to the thermal cutout, helping preserve the gears. The gearbox is automatically-resettable if this were to happen.
  • On-Demand Grinding: Front-mounted pulse button allows for easy, on-demand grinding, helpful for when you're grinding directly into a brew basket.
  • Hopper Capacity: 8oz (227 g)
  • Grounds Bin Capacity: 5oz (142 g)
  • Dimensions: 4.7" x 13.8" x 6.3"
  • Weight: 7 lbs
  • Power Rating: 110V AC 50/60Hz 1 Amp
  • Safety Listing: UL/CSA/CE/EK
  • Warranty: One year

Baratza

Baratza is the company at the forefront of home coffee grinding innovation. Before Baratza entered the coffee manufacturing scene, one was hard pressed to find an affordable burr coffee grinder. Now, home baristas and cafes alike have multiple affordable burr grinders to choose from courtesy of the U.S. based company. Baratza currently offers five different burr grinders: Baratza Maestro Plus, Baratza Virtuoso, Baratza Virtuoso Preciso, Baratza Vario, and the weight based grinding Baratza Vario-W. In addition to this lineup, Baratza has also released a weight based grinding attachment for their grinders, the Baratza Esatto. One popular mantra from the coffee world is: the biggest investment a coffee fan can make is in a high quality grinder. Baratza has made the "investment" part of that coffee truism a lot more attainable.

Wow!

I wanted better coffee at home, and word on the street was a grinder is of the utmost importance. I was nevertheless skeptical there would be any difference between the Encore and my trusty Hario. Well, the first time I used my new Encore, I made the best cup of French press (shoutout to Spot coffee) I've had in my life; I literally got goosebumps! For the price, Baratza has produced an irreproachable product, and the service from Prima Coffee is nothing short of the ne plus ultra. Bravo!

Nice grinder

Used espresso machine and grinder for years. Had stroke paralyzing my entire left side. Ordered new grinder to use right handed. Works great. Still have great coffee every morning (sometimes afternoons, too)

I don't know nuthin' 'bout no coffee

I'm an amateur, as far as home coffee brewing goes. I read some articles, spoke with my local barista (non-starbucks,) read a few reviews of the bean grinder. It works well enough to provide a nice, fresh tasting pot of coffee for someone whom isn't going down the rabbit hole of obsessive coffee brewing. Peace.

Real nice

I had been using the hario skerton for a few years before this, making 50 grams of grounds at a time some days. It was awful. Now it takes two seconds and it's no work and I'm so happy. Prima shipped quickly and the grinder arrived safely. If you're debating between this and the Virtuoso, this is definitely enough for home use.

Completes our Kitchen

Several months ago, we purchased a Bonavita coffeemaker and it noticeably improved our coffee. We ground beans in our blender. For Christmas, l got my wife Barattza coffee grinder. She was visiting relatives overseas and only recently opened it up. She commented that the coffee is much less bitter and loves the machine. I drink it cold and agree with her. Only negative is that the ground bin isn't clear, so you have to guess if you have ground enough beans.

My third Baratza

Simply the best home grinders out there. Easy to use and maintain. Very consistent results. My vario-w has been going strong for 6 years. I like to buy the encore as a gift for family. Everyone loves it.

Entry Level Grinder

Purchasing this grinder marked my transition into coffee greatness. Packaging was neat and compact and shipping status was easily tracked online. I definitely enjoy the covenience of not having to hand grind my beans and I look forward to utilizing this machine to its fillest potential. i recommend this product to those who have had the experience of hand grinding their own beans for multiple coffee brewing methods. Convenience is an aspect that cannot be replaced.

New Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder

I purchased a new grinder from Amazon which was clearly a re-packaged grinder. It never worked correctly but i put up with it for a year. I decided discard that grinder and to purchase the same model from Prima . Wow i actually received a NEW grinder. Now i know how this grinder is supposed to sound and it actually grinds the coffee in a uniform way! My advice from this experience is to stay away from the large "everything" online stores and to get my coffee equipment from a coffee company like Prima!

A Grinder that works!

After going through 3 burr grinders in the $35-$50 price range that all failed miserably-mostly because the grinder settings did not work, I decided to upgrade to the Baratza. Well worth the price-quality workmanship, reliable grinder settings and easy to clean. A winner and reinforces the old saying "You get what you pay for"!
