Baratza Encore Conical Burr Grinder

Product Description

The American designed and engineered Baratza Maestro grinders have been proving themselves in coffee lovers’ kitchens since 2001. And since its introduction Baratza listened to feedback from its users and improved the Maestro with significant changes in 2003, 2007, and 2010.

Now, with the introduction of modern engineered materials and precision manufacturing methods, Baratza has designed the all new Encore grinder incorporating all of the great features and qualities of the Maestro series along with the feedback from users and new materials to make it an even better, quieter, and more efficient coffee grinder with an enhanced range of grind fineness.

Features like a weighted base, 40 individual grind settings, a new 2nd generation gearbox (GB2.0), efficient DC motor, and a combination of electric and gear speed reducers to slow the burr revolutions to 450 RPM keeping the grounds cool and avoiding static build up, make the Encore a wise choice for the at-home Barista. Oh, and the price is still the best in its category for a true burr type espresso grinder that can produce drip grind and French press grind! The Encore is a truly versatile all-around grinder for the coffee lover.


The Encore also features the next generation of gearbox design that along with a redesigned drive shaft and motor mounting plate and bushings incorporates a new drive gear made of 15% glass filled thermo plastic which is quieter than the prior metal gear, wears better and is more shock resistant. This creates a very robust yet quieter grinding performance. The new design includes safety features stopping the grinder and triggering the automatically-resettable thermal cutout if foreign objects enter the burrs.


The Encore is equipped with a new design of durable 40mm conical burrs precision manufactured in Liechtenstein. The burrs are held in place with a precision mounting system to provide a steady platform for accurate grinding. The Encore now grinds fine enough for espresso and is adjustable for all other brewing needs all the way to a coarse French press grind. The new burrs are so efficient that even at the low rotating speed of 450rpm, they grind a typical espresso dose in 7 seconds. The burrs are removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.

Bean Hopper and Grounds Container

This Baratza model has an 8-ounce bean hopper and a 5-ounce anti-static grounds container. Both are tinted to reduce light exposure.

Grinder Adjustments

The Baratza Encore has 40 stepped grind adjustments from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. Alternating between the different grind settings is easy; simply turn the bean hopper. The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.


An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the Encore can be user calibrated.


The high-torque, direct-current motor results in seamless operation; since the burrs are operated at about 450 RPM, heat transfer and static are kept to a minimum. In addition to heat and static reduction, the low RPM lets the grinder remain quiet and unobtrusive. The motor also features an automatically resetting, thermal cut-off switch for safe operation.

Grinds Left in Grinder

To maximize freshness, the Encore minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.

Speed Control

With unique speed control, the Encore uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 450 RPM. The electronic speed controller is adjustable from 405 to 495 RPM in the event that specific user conditions require modification of the speed. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.


Baratza Esatto grind control scales

Esatto: An accessory that transforms your Encore into a grind by weight grinder. Set the weight you want, the Esatto does the rest, weighing the ground coffee to within +/- 0.2g, while grinding, and stopping automatically.

Baratza Portafilter holder

The Baratza Maestro PortaHolder gives your arm a little rest when making espresso by eliminating the need to stand and hold a portafilter in place throughout the grinding process. Simply insert the PortaHolder™ into the grounds bin slot, insert a portafilter and operate the grinder.
