About this deal

With a stepless grinder, there are numbers, but you can also select any point in between those numbers, which means you can tinker endlessly with the size of your grinds. The DC motor keeps your beans cool while the gear speed reducers slow the burr to 550 RPM for less noise and smoother bean feeding. The quality of a grinder’s burr set will affect everything from how consistently it grinds to how long it lasts, though ideally you should also be able to replace the burrs when they do wear out.

We love the Baratza Encore’s straightforward controls, which make your daily brew experience simple. In between deep cleanings, most experts recommend running some Grindz cleaning tablets through your machine about once a month, or when you are switching from one type of bean to another. Like all of Baratza’s grinders, almost every part of the machine is repairable or replaceable, which is rare among grinders designed for home use. A typical run with the Baratza for me is that I measure out 30 grams of coffee, dump them in the hopper, turn on the machine, let it run until it stops sounding like it’s grinding anything at all, and then turn it off. One thing I think it’s necessary for any Baratza Encore grinder review to cover is that the grinder does have one significant downside: the amount of bean debris it produces, especially when used without sufficient care (read: often for me) is notable.The actual item you receive may differ from that which is displayed, for example the box may have changed or a model may have been upgraded or changed after we have added the product online. But considering that many of us do that when we make coffee anyway (and this is considered the most precise way to make coffee), we don’t consider this to be a big deal.

The Encore—like all Baratza grinders—is covered by a limited one-year warranty, provided that you keep up regular maintenance and cleaning and don’t use the machine to grind rocks. This can vary depending on a number of external factors: a room’s humidity, the type and age of the coffee you’re grinding, the grind setting, whether your machine has a flat or conical burr, and even what kind of surface your grinder sits on. Featuring 40 individual grind settings, from fine to coarse, the Encore can please any palate with its gamut of accurate and repeatable grind settings. We learned that the Encore is now slightly quieter than the OXO when the machines are running empty (by about 5 decibels), but slightly louder than the OXO (by about 2 decibels) when the two machines are actively processing beans.In a video, Baratza suggests cleaning your grinder about once a month if you’re grinding oily beans, noting that you can go longer if your beans are a lighter roast. ounces (50 grams) more than the C2’s, which isn’t ideal if you also intended to use this as a portable grinder.
