About the Brand

Baratza Encore Electric Burr Coffee Grinder

Over the years, our Maestro Plus has come to be lauded by coffee experts as THE go-to grinder for those who love both drip-coffee and manual brews. Building on that platform, we have developed the Encore, with upgraded burrs to give a great grind for drip/manual brew and also fine enough for espresso. The Encore also has a completely new gearbox. 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 the 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. And, of course, the Encore is built with the quality Baratza parts you've come to trust. The efficient DC motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 450 RPM, ensuring a smooth bean feed and reducing noise, heat and static buildup. Beyond a great coffee-drinking experience, the Encore makes for a great coffee-making experience. A convenient, front-mounted pulse button makes it easy to grind on demand into your brew basket. Whether you are looking for an espresso grinder or a grinder to help you explore that extensive range of brew methods, the Encore is a great all around home grinder.

  • Burrs: The Encore's 40 mm conical burrs will grind for many styles of coffee. Conical burr 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
  • 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 minimizes 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 cutoff 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 Encore has an easy on-off switch
  • Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy
  • 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 the 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-resetable) thermal cutout was triggered, and the gears were fine

Great reliable product

Rene from So Calif– Verified Buyer

My intial impresson was that this was way too loud and ground beans too slow. After a week I see that these can be either normal, or an advantage. Its about as loud as a blender, the beans grind slow but I read this is a plus in that it doesnt burn the beans while grinding. The bottom line is that it is a huge improbement over my blade grinder. I always thought it was BS that it cant make that big a difference, but it does.

Encore Grinder

Nicholas from Tulsa, OK– Verified Buyer

Purchased this grinder to replace an earlier model from this manufacturer that burned out after three years of heavy use. I was very impressed with the old one so I am sure this one will meet my expectations as well. This grinder is fast and the settings are consistent. The only downfall is the plastic hopper causes static cling when it is very dry out.

I highly recommend this grinder.

Excellent Entry-Level Burr Grinder

Kok from Frisco, TX– Verified Buyer

I prefer the pour over method of brewing. The Baratza Encore meets my requirements for a consistent grind texture of my pour over brewing equipment. The grinder feels solidly built. I have been using this grinder everyday for the past three weeks without any trouble. I look forward to using this grinder for a long time.
