Familiar Form, New Capabilities
The Encore is certainly the most well-known grinder in Baratza’s lineup, and is possibly one of the most recognizable home coffee grinders on the market. Now, the Encore platform has been divided into two categories: the ever-popular Encore classic and the newly-released Encore ESP. Featuring a similar form factor and user experience to the original Encore, Baratza has designed the ESP specifically for the home espresso market with a little extra functionality and hardware for multi-purpose grinding. Resting in an incredibly budget-friendly price range, the Baratza Encore ESP is a perfect choice for blossoming home baristas.
A Unique Adjustment System
The Baratza Encore ESP features a uniquely ramped, stepped adjustment system that offers a fine, espresso-capable grind in the first 20 settings. Each click of the grinder’s adjustment mechanism is equal to a change of only 20 microns, allowing for an simple dialing in process. Once you’ve passed the 20th click, each adjustment will amount to a slightly larger shift to 90 microns for applications that require greater particle sizes. While the Baratza Encore ESP is geared, specifically, to the home espresso market, it is capable of grinding for a wide array of coffee brewing applications from pour-over brewing, to French press brewing, all the way up to cold brew, putting the ESP in the multi-purpose coffee grinding category.
