Manufactured in Europe, the Encore’s 40 mm conical burrs will grind for many styles of coffee. Conical burrs grinders are exceptional at producing consistent grinds from very fine to very coarse. They're durable too - the grinder will remain sharp for many years even with daily use.
Second Generation Gearbox
In 2012, Baratza introduced the second generation Gearbox (GB 2.0). With GB 2.0, Baratza has significantly increased the strength and durability of the drive transmission while decreasing noise. In addition to a new drive shaft, motor mounting plate and bushings, this change incorporates a new drive gear made of 15% glass-filled thermo plastic which is quieter than the previous metal gear, wears better and is more shock resistant. During the Encore’s rigorous testing process, stainless steel screws were thrown into the burrs. In every case the motor/gear/burrs stopped immediately, the (automatically-resettable) thermal cutout was triggered, and the gears were undamaged.
Adjustable Grinding Capabilities
With 40 settings you can quickly adjust your grind from fine (for espresso) to coarse (for French Press). The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.
Minimal Grinds Leftover
To maximize freshness, the Encore minimizes ground coffee left in the grinder.
Multiple Brewing Methods
The Encore is a great grinder for both manual brewing and espresso.
A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically-resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary or desired, the grinders can be user-calibrated.
Unique Speed Control
The Encore uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 450 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
Burrs are easily removable without tools, making cleaning quick and easy.
