The Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder Is Compact and convenient

Precision grinding for a better brew with Baratza Encore
The finest brew is always made with fresh and evenly ground coffee. The Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder’s specially-designed conical burrs give a precise grind which enables a balanced extraction of flavours when making espresso or using popular manual brew methods. Manufactured in Europe, the burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many years. If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated.
Reduce noise, heat and static with speed control
The Baratza Encore uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr between 405 to 495 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder and ensures beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
Quality parts you can trust
The Encore is built with quality Baratza parts. The efficient DC motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times. The drive gear is made of 15% glass-filled thermoplastic so it is quieter than a metal drive gear, wears better and is more shock-resistant. Stainless steel screws hold together the burrs, and it comes with a thermal cut-out. Comes with a 2-year warranty as standard.
So if you’re looking for a great all-around home grinder to take your coffee-making experience to the next level, look no further – The Baratza Encore has everything you need.
Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, Encore's 40 mm conical burrs will grind for many styles of coffee. Conical burrs grinders are exceptional at producing consistent grinds from very fine to very coarse as well as being durable and will remain sharp for many years.
Gearbox: In 2012, Baratza introduced the second generation Gearbox (GB 2.0). With GB 2.0, Baratza has significantly increased the strength and durability of the drive transmission while decreasing noise. In addition to a new drive shaft, motor mounting plate and bushings, this change includes a new drive gear made of 15% glass filled thermo plastic which is quieter than the prior metal gear, wears better and is more shock-resistant. During Encore's rigorous testing process, stainless steel screws were thrown into the burrs, and in every case, the motor/gear/burrs stopped immediately, the (automatically-resettable) thermal cutout was triggered, and the gears were fine.
Grind Adjustment: Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.
Grinds Left in Grinder: To maximize freshness, the Encore minimises the ground coffee left in the grinder.
Brewing Methods: The Encore is a great grinder for manual brewing and espresso.
Motor: A powerful, high-torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cut-off switch.
Calibration: An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated.
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.
On-off Switch: The Baratza Encore has an easy on-off switch.
Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
Accessories (which may be purchased separately):
Esatto: An accessory that transforms your Encore into a grind-by-weight grinder. Set the weight you want, the Esatto does the rest, weighing the ground coffee to within +/- 0.2g, while grinding, and stopping automatically.
Hopper extender: An extension that can add 9 oz. of capacity to the existing 8 oz. bean hopper. Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
