A Quick Note From Sagebrush Coffee Owner Matt Kellso
This is the entry level Baratza grinder. Baratza coffee grinders are always our favorites and so if this is what you can afford, you will not be disappointed it. It uses a steel burr and does a great job with anything from a course french press to a more fine pour over. If you're looking for a fine espresso grinder this is not the one I would recommend, but it can handle the job. Most espresso machines need a fine consistent grind. I would look at the Sette coffee grinders from Baratza.
These grinders are in stock and available to ship out USPS Priority next day with a small coffee sample of Sagebrush Coffee.
About The Baratza Encore Burr Grinder
The Encore is lauded by coffee experts as THE go-to entry level grinder for those brewing coffee at home. The Encore gives a great grind for drip/manual brew and also grinds fine enough for espresso.
Featuring 40 individual grind settings, from fine to coarse, the Encore can please any palate with its gamut of accurate and repeatable grind settings. The Encore has an accurate medium to coarse grind for the increasingly popular manual brew methods such as pour-over, Aeropress, Siphon and Chemex. The specially designed burrs give a precise grind with minimal fines for a flavorful, balanced extraction when making espresso.
And, of course, the Encore is built with the quality Baratza parts you’ve come to trust. The efficient DC motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 450 RPM, ensuring a smooth bean feed and reducing noise, heat and static buildup.
Beyond a great coffee-drinking experience, the Encore makes for a great coffee-making experience. A convenient, front-mounted pulse button makes it easy to grind on demand into your brew basket. Whether you are looking for an espresso grinder or a grinder to help you explore that extensive range of brew methods, the Encore is a great all around home grinder.
