The Baratza Encore replaces the Maestro Plus as the company’s entry level grinder – but it delivers grind quality you’d expect from a much more expensive machine. The 40mm conical burrs can be adjusted to 40 distinct settings from extra fine to coarse, making it suitable for brewing everything from espresso to manual drip and press.


The Encore features intuitive controls and easy adjustment. To adjust the grind settings, simply turn the bean hopper to the left or right. You’ll feel it click into place when it hits a setting. There’s a pulse button on the front for press-and-hold grinding, and a knob on the side to turn the machine on and off for larger quantities of coffee.


The range of grind settings makes this a great coffee grinder for entry level coffee lovers who want to use a range of coffee brewing methods. The Encore can handle coarse coffee for your press, medium grind for drip and fine grind for espresso, making it the only coffee grinder you need for home use.

You're reviewing: Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder


When you ask for advice on how to improve the quality of your coffee, the first question you’ll be asked is almost always about the grinder you use. Anyone who loves great coffee understands the importance of the coffee grinder to the quality of the coffee. A high-quality coffee grinder that grinds consistently and evenly is an essential piece of coffee equipment, and no one delivers that better than Baratza. Founded in 1999, the Bellevue, WA company released its first self-branded coffee grinder, the Virtuoso, in 2005, and a legend was born. The Virtuoso set the standard for conical burr grinders and started Baratza off on the path of innovation and improvement. From the start, Baratza was known for quality design and manufacturing and for delivering commercial quality in machines aimed at the home barista. In 2008, Baratza introduced the Vario, taking the innovation up a notch and positioning itself squarely at the intersection of the light commercial and home markets. The Vario featured flat ceramic burrs and a feature for which Baratza has become famous, micro/macro adjustment that allows almost limitless precision in dialing in the perfect grind for each coffee and brewing method. It was only a matter of time before Baratza introduced the Preciso, a conical burr grinder for the home market with macro/micro adjustment. Baratza made history again in 2011, taking two SCAA Best New Product awards in the same year for the Esatto and Vario-W, which feature the company’s unique weight-based grinding system, once again setting the bar for other coffee equipment manufacturers to follow. Baratza is committed to three goals: Supporting the specialty coffee community with high-quality coffee grinders that meet all of their needs Providing innovation and improvement with every new product Providing excellent customer service Baratza offers a range of flat and conical burr grinders, as well as accessories like portaholders to allow grinding directly into the portafilter, and the Esatto, which adds weight-based grind capability to the Maestro Plus, Virtuoso and Preciso coffee grinders.
