The Baratza Encore is a wonderful entry level burr coffee grinder offering performance you would only expect from more expensive models. We have tested the Encore extensively, and can highly recommend it as an excellent (and relatively low cost) all-purpose coffee grinder for home brewing due to it's versatility, ease of use, quality construction and last but not least grinding performance. Equipped with forty (40) grind settings, the Baratza Encore can produce beautifully consistent ground coffee from very fine for espresso machines (pressurized style filter only) through coarse for French press pots and all brewing methods in between. The Encore's top bean hopper is large and easy to load, holding about half a pound of coffee beans, and the removable ground coffee bin seals well with the grind to minimize mess and slides out smoothly when your done grinding. Another feature we like about the Encore is that it's equipped with both a side-mounted on/off switch for grinding larger quantities, as well as a front push button when you want more precise control. The only limitation we wish to mention regarding the Baratza Encore grinder, is that we don't feel it can grind quite fine enough for commercial style (non-pressurized filter) espresso machines as they require an exceptionally fine grind that few home grinders can achieve. However, please know the Encore works perfectly with home espresso machines that use pressurized style filters, as well as all other types of brewing methods such as drip, French press, percolator, vacuum/siphon, and stovetop espresso to name a few.

Bang for your buck
After using a manual hand grinder for months to prep beans for my ROK espresso maker, I decided to spend some money on an entry-level grinder. I must say I was blown away at the quality and the consistency the Encore produces! It also pairs perfectly with the smaller 49mm ROK portafilter since it easily fits where the grinds are produced. (If I were to upgrade to a semi-auto espresso machine I would more than likely upgrade to another Baratza grinder)
outstanding value
I have been using the encore daily for a few years now. It has always performed well. I have never had an issue of any kind. I grind fine for my LaPavoni, medium for the auto, and coarse for the press. I have read reviews that say it is not adequate for espresso and i find this not true. This machine will adjust down to powder. I grind 8-10 for espresso and around 36 for press. This grinder has no equal in its price range.
