The Encore is a conical burr coffee grinder that offers the versatility to grind beans for many brewing methods. The weight (8 pounds) of this grinder offers extra stability and the timer makes it easy to use for your daily cup of joe. Coffee industry experts have tested the Encore for filter brewing and found that it produced a cup that was “head and shoulders” above other domestic grinders. The Encore does not produce excessive fines which can produce bitter tasting coffee.
Conical Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, the 40 mm conical burrs will grind for any style of coffee. Conical burr grinders are exceptional at producing consistent grinds from very fine to very coarse as well as being durable and will remain sharp for many years. The burrs have a precision mounting system to ensure a stable platform for accurate grinding
Steps of Adjustment: The Encore has 40 steps of adjustment. Choose the perfect setting by turning the bean hopper to the desired position
Calibration System: Commercial grinders have a calibration system to ensure that the grinder will grind fine to coarse. Now this feature is available in a grinder designed for home use. An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. The grinders are calibrated when they are manufactured to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary the grinders can be user calibrated.
DC Motor: 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.
Speed Control: The Encore uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reducers to slow the spinning 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.
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 includes 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. During the Encore’s rigorous testing process, stainless steel screws were thrown into the burrs, and in every case the motor/gear/burrs stopped immediately, the (automatically-resettable) thermal cutout was triggered, and the gears were fine.
On-off Switch: The Encore has an easy on-off switch
Pulse Button: A front mounted pulse button makes it easy to grind directly into an espresso filter basket. After you remove the coffee grounds bin, you can insert your filter basket (portafilter) directly under the dispensing chute to collect the coffee as it is being dispensed. You can push the pulse button with your thumb while holding the filter basket for true one hand operation.
