Baratza Encore BLACK Coffee Grinder
The New Look Baratza 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.
Baratza has developed the new Encore with upgrades to the burrs as to give a great a grind for drip/manual brew and also fine enough for espresso. The Encore also has a completely new gearbox. Baratza's entry-level burr grinder model takes the previous generation Maestro Plus' features and improves upon them. Although the casing looks similar to its precursors, the upgraded gear box provides improved durability and decreased noisiness. Unlike its predecessors, however, the Encore can effectively be used with traditional espresso machines, not just pressurized systems.
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.
