Ask any barista worth their salt what the best entry-level home coffee grinder is and you’ll get the same answer: the Baratza Encore. Fitted with 40 grind settings and razor sharp 40mm conical burrs, the grinder is well-developed for anyone looking to brew great coffee.

Grind coffee finely for pour over brewing or coarsely for a french press. All 40 grind settings are capable of consistently producing a uniform grind size, which is a non-negotiable when you want balanced coffee. The conical burrs will remain sharp for years.

Rocks hiding in coffee beans can destroy coffee grinders, but Baratza’s Gear Box 2.0 is sensitive enough to shut off when objects that are too hard come in contact with the burrs. Additionally, the inclusion of glass-filled thermo plastic reduces noise and increases gear longevity.

The grinder has a side mounted on/off switch that allows you to step away from the grinder and work on other things, and a front-facing 'pulse' button makes grinding small amounts easy. Comes in Black and the newest addition, White.

We at Alternative Brewing recognize the power of the Baratza Encore for manual brewing, but we do not recommend it for espresso brewing because of its lack of espresso-fine grinding capability. May suggest taking a look at the Baratza Sette 270.

No it does not. Baratza have since released a newer version of the Encore, the Encore ESP, and this will grind for Espresso.
Yes, you can try spritzing the beans with some water, known as RDT. The Ross Droplet Technique (RDT) is a method used in espresso preparation where a small amount of water is applied to coffee beans before grinding. This technique helps reduce static electricity and clumping of the coffee grounds, resulting in a more consistent grind size and improved extraction during brewing.
The Baratza Encore can grind as fine as 250µ and as coarse as 1200µ, and makes a great All-round Grinder.

For optimal grinder maintenance, if you frequently use dark roast beans, which tend to be oilier, it's advisable to clean your grinder more often, ideally once a month. However, if you prefer light roasts or use your grinder infrequently, you can likely extend the cleaning interval to once every three months. Adjusting the cleaning frequency based on the type of beans you use and your usage pattern helps maintain optimal grinder performance.
To clean the Baratza Encore grinder, follow these steps: Set the grinder to the coarsest setting to facilitate hopper removal. Lift out the hopper and carefully remove the small black rubber collar surrounding the white burr plate. Remove the top burr collar by lifting it straight out. Utilize the provided brush tool to clean the burr, ensuring to remove any coffee grounds or residues. Avoid washing with water to prevent rusting and corrosion. Use the brush tool to clear the grinder's chute of any blockages hindering coffee dispensing into the grind bin. Focus on the lower burr, which is not removable. Use the brush tool to clear away grounds around the burr as much as possible. Vacuum any dislodged debris. If necessary, use a long slim pick tool to reach deeper areas. Pay close attention to the chute's opening inside the burr chamber, as blockages frequently occur here. Use a pick, brush, and vacuum to clear any accumulated coffee buildup. Optionally, you can wash the hopper, rubber collar, and grind bin in warm soapy water, ensuring thorough drying before reinstalling. Following these steps will help maintain your Baratza Encore grinder in optimal condition.
