Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

Featuring 40 individual grind settings, from fine to coarse, the Encore can please any palate with its gamut of accurate and repeatable grind settings. The Encore has an accurate medium to coarse grind for the increasingly popular manual brew methods such as pour-over, Aeropress, Siphon and Chemex. The specially designed burrs give a precise grind with minimal fines for a flavorful, balanced extraction when making espresso.

Oh man. I just paid this for a refurb direct from Baratza. My Aldi burr grinder died, and I didn't want to pay this kind of money for a disposable appliance.

For those who don't know, Baratza offers parts for their grinders - they are meant to be repaired! You can also buy an upgraded burr (the M3, I think) and this grinder will perform just like their next model up. The only practical difference is the cheaper plastic housing and the extra $80 or so in your pocket. All the grinding guts are the same. this is more or less a Buy it for Life type of product.

Ive used mine for a week, and the grounds are so much more consistent than any of my previous grinders. And that's without the burr upgrade. The motor doesn't bog down in the least while grinding beans. It would be nice to have a timer to shut off the grinder while I'm doing other things, but whatever. It works so well that I don't really care all that much.

If you have a budding coffee nerd in your life, or just want to buy once this is a great grinder.
Until you use a good conical burr grinder, you don't really know what you're missing. (And that's okay - I didn't either until I finally took a leap of faith).

Regular "burr" grinders and traditional cheaper blade/chop grinders are very inconsistent and produce a ton of "fines". These way too fine ground pieces make your coffee bitter / off. Instead of chopping, this has two blades that almost look like gears interlocking and crushes the coffee much more consistently. How close together these burrs are determines how finely it gets ground.

The lack of consistency in the grind in general means the amount of coffee extracted with vary a ton, changing the way your coffee tastes along with it.

As for why more expensive - the burrs are more expensive, mostly. This one is great because they WILL wear down (with any grinder) and you can replace, upgrade, or repair them. This is the gold standard entry level conical burr grinder. Google "Best coffee grinder reddit" for a ton of additional info on why.

Hope that helps.
This is a great grinder for anything except espresso. French press, pourover, standard drip...the Encore will be great.

Unfortunately it does not have enough adjustment steps or consistency at the super-fine grind settings to make great espresso with a non-pressurized portafilter setup. Their Sette line is much better if espresso is your thing.

Bravo, I always miss these sales! Gave up and got one from Amazon full price... arrived today. I'll be returning that one and just got this one out of principal.

This is about what a comparable conical burr coffee grinder costs. You might be thinking about blade grinders?

Because it can grind to real espresso level. Most grinders can't. If you drink espresso at home, this the cheapest, best grinder

I got this from Peet's a few months ago for $99 with free shipping. I've not opened it yet because I'm fairly satisfied with my current grinder... Feima 600n.

This will really get the "America's Test Kitchen" zealots fired up. Just need a slick deal on some popcorn.

Peet's cancelled last time when it was $111 pretax, they took a long time to cancel on a 2 day shoprunner order. I had even ordered a full day before someone posted the deal here at SD, but it still got cancelled. Ended up buying the gift from Blue Bottle, they had the new white one in stock at the time. Probably a good idea for folks to purchase from an authorized reseller for future warranty. https://baratza.com/where-to-buy/...resellers/

Info on burr upgrade can be found on reddit and https://baratza.com/encore-upgrade-gb2-0/

What does ATK recommend? They're usually pretty good at their suggestions.
