A Reliable Coffee Grinder

The Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder has a simple and convenient design. It even comes with some free coffee filters so that you can hit the ground running. The features on offer here are: 8 oz bean hopper capacity, speed control to around 450rpm, Swiss made steel burr wheels, 40 grind settings, automatic and manual functionality, and easy access for cleaning. All the elements of a good quality coffee grinder are there, but is the end result going to be as impressive as it all sounds.

Entry-Level Sophisticated Design

This Baratza coffee grinder is an entry level product, but some of the features might make you think otherwise. For example, the advanced gearbox provides a high level of durability at 450rpm’s and a relatively low noise level. Nobody likes noisy equipment in their home so having a coffee grinder that is not going to annoy everyone in the household is certainly advantageous. Furthermore, the grind settings can be set to a very fine setting that’s capable of making an espresso.

Control Over Quality

The fact that there are 40 different grind settings allows for a lot of control over the taste of your coffee. With so many options to choose from you might struggle to make a decision most mornings. The great thing is that changing from one setting to another is straight forward. Furthermore, the quality of the grinding mechanism ensures that the grind at each setting will be consistent.


Large Bean Hopper

The large size of the bean hopper means you won’t have to repeatedly fill it up. You can fill it up once a week and then forget about it. Once the hopper is filled up to maximum capacity, it’s worth 20 cups of espresso, or around 7 cups of coffee.

Great Value

The price point of the Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder is that of an entry level machine, yet some of the features are higher-end. Therefore, you’ll be getting a lot more value than you are actually paying for.

High Number Of Grind Settings

With 40 different grind settings you are spoilt for choice. This machine will let you explore other tastes if you are the kind of person who drinks the same cup of coffee every day.


Speed Of Grinding

When compared with other grinders this one is a little on the slow side. For example, to grind just 8 cups of coffee you’ll need to wait 1 minute and 40 seconds. So this machine sacrifices speed, but in return provides great flavor.

Overall Review

The Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder has the design and functionality to please the most sophisticated of coffee drinkers. With up to 40 grind settings and an advanced burr mechanism the Bartaze Encore is worthy of your consideration. It is a little slow, but if you are patient, and care more about taste then this coffee grinder is the one for you. It even comes with a few extras such as a porcelain cup and filters for added value.
