With unique speed control, the Encore ESP uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 550 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs. ON-OFF SWITCH 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 but will offer less control than more expensive grinders like the Virtuoso. When debating between the Baratza Encore and Virtuoso+, consider this: Will an entry-level performer suit your brew, or do you need more? This clever tactic expands the functionality of the original Encore while maintaining its simplicity and ease of use.

The models use different conical burrs. The Virtuoso+ has an M2 burr that grinds more precisely than the Encore’s M3 burr, producing more uniform particles for superior coffee taste. The contrast is most noticeable at the fine and coarse ends of the setting range. This makes the Virtuoso+ more suitable for producing consistently flavorful espresso and smooth brews from very coarse grinds. Grind range When you’re getting started in coffee making, most people make the chasm leap from buying ground coffee to grinding fresh with a blade grinder. These remain the most popular and best-selling coffee grinders, and for good reasons: they’re simple, they’re cheap, and they do the job well-enough.One thing I think it’s necessary for any Baratza Encore grinder review to cover is that the grinder does have one significant downside: the amount of bean debris it produces, especially when used without sufficient care (read: often for me) is notable. ;( So , if you’re tired of cranking slowly every morning, the Baratza Encore is an excellent option, mainly if you are on a budget. You want to upgrade from a blade grinder A common complaint of the Baratza Encore is that it can feel quite slow at times. The reason for this (besides the burr type) is it has a lot of so-called popcorning. This means that the beans are flying around in the hopper, instead of sliding down and being crushed between the burrs. The Encore ESP is optimized for espresso from #1-20 and produces excellent filter grinds from #21-40. MOTOR First and foremost, every electric burr grinder is going to be better than a blade grinder (for reasons discussed above) and better than a manual system for the reasons of physical labor. While I concede that the physical labor of grinding some coffee beans is light when compared to, say, building the Egyptian pyramids, I’d rather not have to do that, especially first thing every morning.

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. The most important part of this review of the Baratza Encore is the reasons we love it. Some of these features are common across the Baratza range, some are very specific to this machine. The Encore is Way Better Than Blade or ManualThe Encore’s grind quality is good for its price range. It does really well for most kinds of regular coffee, such as: The Encore is a basic grinder that is perfect for beginners. In essence, its major shortcoming is its simplicity. Additionally, as I said, it doesn’t have enough fine grind settings for espresso. The Encore ESP utilizes a simple and efficient direct drive gear reduction transmission to move power from the DC motor to the rotating cone burr. A thermal overload cutout protects the motor from overheating due to excessive use. GROUNDS LEFT IN GRINDER Writing a Baratza Encore coffee grinder review implies that this isn’t a dedicated espresso grinder. As an all-purpose grinder, it delivers better results for other brewing devices like Moka Pot, French press, and pour-overs. Coffee grinding technology has nuances, and it’s pretty expensive to build a grinder that can deliver even coffee grind sizes at the coarser and finer extremes. While some claim that the Baratza Encore can grind fine enough for espresso, it really shines in manual brewing methods. That means Aeropress, V60, Chemex, drip coffee, cold brew, and French Press. These all require grind particle sizes anywhere from medium-fine to coarse and in these the Baratza Encore excels. Of course it produces some fines (tiny dust-like coffee particles) like all grinders, but these are minimal especially considered to similarly priced grinders.
