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.


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.


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.

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
