Our Take On The Baratza Encore

*this grinder is not recommended for espresso grinding*

"The go-to entry level grinder." Still to this day the Encore is one of the, if not the, most popular home coffee grinder on the market. Thousands are sold every month for a reason - it's a tank. With a 40mm burr set, it's not exactly ideal for espresso but perfect for most brew methods where a coarse grind is required (french press, drip, pour over, etc). What we love about the encore is its everlasting simplicity. Adjusting the burrs is as easy as rotating the sturdy bean hopper (40 grind settings) where grinding simply requires the touch of a button.

Product Highlights

  • The Encore's 40mm conical burr set will grind for many types of brew. Espresso grinding, however, it not it's forte. Conical burrs excel at producing a consist grind time after time. 
  • Adjusting the burrs is simple and quick. Simply turn the hopper to any of the Encore's 40 adjustment settings and grind. 
  • Bins container included. Grinding can be a messy process which is why Baratza includes a bins container for you to ground directly into. 
  • An automatic timer located on the side of the grinder allows you to simply turn it and let the grinder go for as long as you designate.

    A Proven Work Horse Grinder for over 10 years

    I love this grinder! grind everything from espresso to french press with this grinder. Read this entire review to see the details.

    I bought the predecessor to this grinder over 10 years ago. My grinder is IDENTICAL to The Encore with two exceptions: 1) the gear mechanism on my original grinder was inferior to this one's and, 2) my grinder has a manual timer instead of the on/off switch.

    About three years ago when the gears on my predecessor grinder stripped, Baratza shocked me. I thought I would have to spring for a new grinder. I wasn't very thrilled with that prospect. But after a little googling, I discovered Baratza was replacing the entire gear assembly for only $15 to cover shipping. This was for a 7 or 8-year-old grinder that was out of warranty by 6 or 7 years. Amazing! I got the kit, read the instructions, watched the video and in about an hour had my grinder going again.

    Shortly after that, I replaced the burrs 'cause I thought I should, although I'm not sure I needed to. I also moved some spacers (already on the grinder) that allow it to grind finer than the factory settings for better espresso grinds. I suspect you can do the same on the Encore, although I don't know for certain.

    Short and sweet: I'm a certified coffee snob and I absolutely recommend this grinder - especially as an entry-level grinder. If you have a blade grinder the single most significant thing you can do to improve your cup - regardless of how you brew - is to buy this grinder!

    Very Good Grinder

    This grinder offers a fairly consistent grind and a wide spectrum of settings. I only use it for an auto-drip Bunn and it serves my needs quite well. I owned the Capresso Infinity before this grinder and was very unhappy with it it. My only complaints with the Encore include the propensity for making a little bit of a mess (but that occurs when brewing with pre-ground or whole bean coffee anyway) and the slight difficulty when cleaning. Despite these minor flaws, I strongly recommend this product to any individual looking for a quality grinder.

    Good quality grinder

    Works very well. I like the consistency of the grind and the nonstick grounds receptacle. Really cuts down on the mess. Would wish to get one next time with an auto stop feature.
