Coffee lovers all over the world who have used Baratza’s Maestro Plus coffee grinder, will love the Encore grinder. It’s similar to the Maestro Plus, but with new and improved features. One of the best features is the upgraded burrs and gearbox. It provides grind sizes that are ideal for drip/manual coffee brewers and can even grind fine enough for espresso.

Features:

40 Grind Settings

With 40 different grind settings, users have plenty of options for a wide range of coffee types and flavor preferences. Unlike stepless grinders, the individual grind settings allow users to have a repeatable grind experience for consistent flavor for each grind size you like. Whether you preferred brew method is Siphon, Chemex, Aeropress, or pour over, the Encore grinder by Baratza has a setting for you. The precisely engineered burrs provide consistent grind size with each setting. Grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.

DC Motor with Burr Speed of 450 RPM

Like all Baratza products, the Encore is built with high quality parts that provide a reliable user experience. The grinder has a series of gear speed reducers to slow the speed of the burr down to 450 RPM, which allows for a less noisy operating experience and less flavor altering heat build-up. The burrs are driven by a DC motor with a lot of power and torque. The slow turning motor that can operate for long periods of time without overheating.

Conical Burrs

The Encore is equipped with 40mm conical burrs that allow you to produce coffee grounds in a variety of sizes for a wide range of different coffee styles. They are manufactured in Europe and designed for durability and lasting sharpness.

Second Generation Gearbox

Introduced as recently as 2012, the Gearbox 2.0 is designed to reduce noise and provide enhanced strength and durability. Improvements include a new drive shaft, a new drive gear, motor mounting plate, and brushings. The new drive gear is made of glass filled thermo plastic, making it quieter than metal gears, with less wear. The machine has a thermal cutout feature that helps protect the gears from damage relating to foreign objects or overheating.

Minimal Grind Build Up 

To maintain fresh flavor of your coffee, the Baratza Encore minimizes the amount of ground coffee left in the grinding chamber.

Calibration

If needed the grinder can be calibrated by the user through a burr calibration system.

Electronic Speed Controller

One of the great features on the Encore is the ability to adjust burr speed with an RPM range between 405 and 495. The slow speed of the burrs allows beans to feed into the burrs without jamming.

Easy Cleaning

Cleaning the Encore is easy! Remove the burrs and clean without even using tools.

    This grinder is a must for the weekend warrior to the barista. The grind is always consistent. For the cost, you can't beat it! One thing to note is the espresso grind isn't the greatest if that is the primary use you may want to step it up.

    I've been using the Encore for several years as an all purpose grinder (including espresso) and I've been really impressed by the performance of this machine.
    Firstly, it is not designed for espresso but it CAN pull a decent shot and has a few steps of leeway for different beans. Darker or denser beans might have me going down to one click away from minimum grind size, but I've never had to go all the way to the smallest size (paired with a Rancilio Silvia).
    It's really easy to use and I like the simplicity of an on off switch - no timers here but I've come to know the grinder well and can usually switch off almost like a timer myself at the exact right dose.
    Be careful to also take good care of the grinder. You will need to use a grinder cleaner every few months depending on how far you like your coffee - I like a city roast so I use cleaner powder every 2 months.
    Great machine. Maybe pushing it a little for espresso and you should probably invest in a better machine for that, but as my first coffee grinder I would say that this has been a very reliable machine.

    This is my workhorse. The grinder was gifted to me by my manager at Starbucks when I moved away. I have used it at least once a day since 2005. I haven't been the best at cleaning it as often as I should. I actually didn't know I could take it apart to clean it until a couple of years ago. This thing is battered and bruised but it grinds my coffee just right every single time. I mainly do pour over, so I don't need to be super picky with grind size. That being said, it grinds the same every time. It's not terribly loud. It doesn't make much of a mess. It's size is good for a small kitchen. I really can't say anything negative about it. It does have oil build up on the plastic hopper and in the grounds catcher, but after all these years, it should. Do I wish it had more bells and whistles, yes I do. But it gets the job done. I haven't had any other appliances that have lasted this long or worked as easily and reliably as this little grinder. Only this year did I discover that it is really a Baratza Encore with Starbucks branding. I can actually get it a new set of burrs in an upgrade kit if I want. But it's a champ, so why mess with it. I want a new grinder, but haven't gotten one yet because this one is still so good at its job. The only reason I want a new one is because there are now so many fun options out there.

IMPORTANT: Water quality is a very important aspect of your espresso machine longevity. Water that is too hard will cause limescale buildup, which is the number one reason for operating problems. Too pure water, such as ultra pure RO water or distilled water can cause the machine to overfill, since the water level probe needs some minerals in the water to detect water. Use softened water that is about 50ppm in hardness. More info

PLEASE NOTE: Most machines and grinders are inspected for damage after being shipped from overseas. This means most boxes will have signs of being opened even though they are brand new products. This is done to ensure that the equipment made the international shipment in good condition and working order.

COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT NOTE: Most commercial equipment ships on a pallet and has to be bench tested prior to shipment. For this reason, commercial equipment usually ships out three to five business days after the order is received. Some commercial equipment is also special order and/or has limited availability, so please check with us prior to placing an order. Check terms and conditions page for terms relating to commercial equipment.
