For those of you looking for the perfect entry level burr grinder at home, the Encore from Baratza has you completely covered. With 40 individual grind settings, it offers an amazingly consistent grind for all of your home brewing methods. Simple to operate, set up, and clean, we believe the Encore is an essential part of your home coffee experience!
Burrs – The 40 mm conical burrs will grind for many styles of coffee. Conical burrs grinders produce consistent grinds from very fine to very coarse, and will stay sharp for several years.
Grind Adjustment – 40 settings that allow you to quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.
Minimal Grinds Left in Grinder – To maximize freshness, the Encore minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.
Burr Calibration – An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind.
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.
Motor – Comes standard with a powerful, high torque DC motor. The 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

Pour the desired quantity of roasted whole coffee beans into the hopper up to a maximum of 8 oz
Replace the lid
Ensure the ground coffee bin is fully inserted
Use either the manual on/off switch, or the pulse button on the front of the machine to grind coffee
To set the grind control, slowly rotate the bean hopper clockwise or counter clockwise to align the indicator on the bean hopper with the desired number setting on the grind scale
Turning the hopper to the right (counter-clockwise) produces a bigger particle size and left (clockwise) produces a smaller particle size.
The lower the number, the smaller the particle size
Select the correct grind for the brew process you are using.
Care and Maintenance
Wash the grounds bin, hopper, and the hopper lid in warm soapy water, then rinse and dry.
If the grinder is used daily, the burrs should be cleaned at least every few months
Cleaning removes some coffee oils, which will stale and degrade the flavor of the ground coffee.
