No Mess - Awesome Grind When searching for a grinder we were looking for 2 things: reduced static cling and even grind forboth our coffee pot and espresso machine. This grinder has met and exceeded our grinder wishlist. For starters All burr grinders will have a bit of mess due to static. This one however is VERY minimal. We were shocked at how little mess was produced. Secondly, the grind settings are wonderful. You can grind everything from turkish to french press. we noticed right away at the flavor difference we tasted from having an even grind and also the right type of grind. We have had this grinder for about a year and still love it. We've had no issues with it whatsoever.We would and have recommended this grinder to friends and family December 20, 2014
Budget grind from a reliable manufacturer Just received this item last week, and initial impressions are very good. Grind is consistent, and the unit does not heat up. I'm able to place my portafilters directly below the receptacle and grind only what I need. Best feature: Very quiet compared to other units I've used. My sister-in-law has one of those fully automatic Saeco giant machines, and that grinder would wake the dead. Instead of a high-pitched whine, this unit emits a slow rumble/grinding noise. Much more pleasant to my 2yr old's ears (her comment: "Daddy - it not noisy"!). She is terrified of kitchen appliance and vacuum noises, so her endorsement is the most important of all. Been doing espresso at the #8 setting. Works fine, but may take it down a notch (finer - 7 perhaps?). The unit has a pulse feature, which works great with portafilters - or you can just use the dial on the side to grind a bigger batch. Overall, nice solid unit. Looking to see how long it lasts (keeping it well-maintained along the way). June 2, 2014
Absolutely Fantastic!! What a treat this grinder is... not very noisy, smooth operation, the grind is SPECTACULAR... I am so impressed after trying four other burr grinders over the years, this is by far the best!! May 19, 2014
Seems like a winner I had the previous version of this grinder that finally gave out after like 10 years. This one is definitely more quiet and has better grind settings. I also like the new ability to remove the burr for cleaning. The unit seems really well built. I miss the timer from the old one but not a show stopper. May 1, 2014
Ideal grinder Great in all respects, especially for the price. Slight points off for: 1) quite loud (considerably louder than our little blade grinder, more like a pretty loud blender), although you'd have to go up a couple hundred dollars in price to find something much quieter, 2) the on/off switch is - circular? so there are four points around the circle - on-off-on-off. Simple, I guess but it seems like there could have just been one on and off, I don't get it. April 25, 2014

Only had it a week, but it is perfect for my daily espresso grinds.

By Mad4Coffee

from Minneapolis, MN, USA

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

After 10 years of using a blade grinder, I was tired of getting different espresso shot results (and inconsistent taste and shot quality) and decided to buy a decent burr grinder. I purchased the Baratza Encore from Starbucks.com and received it in about one week. I have had the product for about a week now, and I use it every morning to pull 2 double-shots of espresso for my wife and myself. I grind directly into the porta-filter.
I dialed in a grind in just three tries that works for 2 different kinds of beans, and it is fine, consistent, and works perfect in my machine. It can go even finer for higher end machines.
I am so happy with this grinder, I am kicking myself for not buying in several years ago.

Best Grinder for the Price

By glowe

from Coastal, NC

See all my reviews

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

It's a lovely grinder, and it gets the coffee really truly finely ground! The price was right and I'm very please with it. Especially with the non-static cling grounds holder. The manual shut off isn't that big of a problem from me, but it's the only thing I would take one star off for. Another added bonus is that if something breaks (like you drop the grounds holder) you can order the parts directly from the company.

Built to last, perfect for an espresso grind

By HeatherMarie

from Seattle, WA, USA

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

My husband bought me an earlier model of this grinder as a Christmas gift 5 years ago from Starbucks. It is used at least twice a day for making espresso. A couple of weeks ago it quit grinding even though the motor sounded like it was working. Rather than toss it, I took it to Home Espresso Repair in Seattle. William (the extremely knowledgeable owner) looked at it, told me what he thought was wrong (the cog), and gave me the info to contact Baratza in Bellevue. I called Baratza, drove it over to their office in Bellevue, and they fixed it for me at no cost (which they do for locals). They showed me how it was designed for easy, low-cost repair in case stones (sometimes present) or the occasional green coffee beans (hard as stones) damage the cog (it was the cog that was damaged on mine). They also reserviced my grinder for free during the 20 minute visit. They expect that it should last at least another 5 more years, if not longer. I highly recommend this coffee grinder as it works worlds better than my handheld grinder for an espresso quality grind and the company made it so easy for me to get it repaired. If I hadn't been able to repair my grinder, I would have replaced it with this model. Because getting it repaired was so easy and it will last for years, I felt compelled to write this review.

Expected better considering the price

By Gladys

from Orlando, FL, USA

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

It's much better than my $15 "whirly-blade" grinder, but doesn't produce the grind uniformity that I expected from a $130 machine.
Also, it's a bit messy - for some reason all the grinds don't fall directly into the receptacle, somehow they get behind and underneath it. Looks like a bit of a design flaw (perhaps the discharge chamber does not line up or seal well enough to prevent finer grounds from blowing into unintended areas). It's not a big deal, but again at this price I expected better.

New user, but happy so far

By rbeezy

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

I've been wanting to upgrade to a burr grinder from my little blade grinder for a while, and I finally bit the bullet and did. This one seemed like the best option for my price range, and so far I've been happy.

I've only used it a couple times, but the noise was about what I expected (not that different than my blade grinder, but quieter than the industrial grinders you hear in coffee shops (I'm a partner, I know how loud those are)), and the grind was consistent (I brew mostly with an Aeropress or French Press). the grind time was a little lengthy, but it's not out of this world, especially if you grind per use. I don't care about a lack of a timer, since I weigh my beans.

I took the hopper and burrs apart, mostly to see how they go back together. Getting the pieces back together takes a little finessing, but I think that will become second nature as I get used to the machine. I will mention that one of the selling features for me is that Encore makes replaceable parts for almost all their pieces, if case something breaks, instead of having to scrap it and get a new grinder.

Overall, very happy, but I'm still a new user, so we'll see how it wears over time.

Best Burr Grinder Under $300!

By mtisi

from South Setauket, NY

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

I have read user reviews for the Encore that bash it for it's lack of timer while it's predecessor, the Maestro, included a timer. Well, I say balderdash! There is no sense of a timer on a burr grinder, and quite frankly I wouldn't trust the timer anyway. You should weigh your beans to the correct mass, and then grind them. Don't try to keep the hopper full all the time.

This grinder does a fantastic job. The grind is consistent, and the range is excellent. I have used it for espresso, drip, and French press. I'll be trying it for Turkish next.

The hopper is a little flimsy compared to the Maestro, but otherwise this is a great grinder. For the money, you can't go wrong!

No timer setting on grinder

By DougC

from Oklahoma

Comments about Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza:

The grinder arrived damaged (hopper was cracked), and then I realized it just had an on/off switch instead of a timer that you can set to grind and stop. We have a Starbuck's Grinder that we love and the most important feature is the timer that you can turn to the setting you want and it stops when the right amount of coffee is ground. This grinder does not have a timer. I will be returning it.
