The Baratza Encore is the ultimate entry-level grinder for your craft coffee journey – the key difference to the taste in your cup.
Beyond a great coffee-making experience, the Encore lets you explore new coffee flavors – With 40 individual grind settings; you can find the perfect grind size for all brewing methods. The hopper can hold 240 grams of whole beans, and the clear grounds bin has a fill line to indicate how much to grind.
The Encore has been designed to fit under most kitchen cabinets without sacrificing power or quality and to bring value to your daily grind.
Burrs: Conical burrs 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.
Gearbox: The Encore 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.
Grind Adjustment: Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press. The grind range is from 250 to 1200 microns.
Motor:This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles.
Calibration: An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder has the full range of grind. If necessary, the grinders can be user calibrated.
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.
Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
On-off Switch:The Encore has an easy on-off switch.
Grounds Left in Grinder: To maximize freshness, the Encore minimizes the ground coffee left in the grinder.

HOW TO USE
How to setup:
Open the box, you will find a setup manual which is very handy for reference.
Remove bean hopper and lid from the plastic cover and remove the protective plastic film from the lid.
Wash the hopper, lid and the removable grounds bin in warm water and air dry them completely.
Attach the knob on the right side of the grinder.
On top of the grinder, there will be a silica gel packet kindly discard the same.
The red mark on the white ring place on the burrs should face setting 30.
Place the rubber gasket down on the white ring according to the indentations.
Place the bean hopper on the grinder, follow the white line on the hopper and place it such so that it faces the 40 mark and twist it clockwise. You are now ready to calibrate your grinder.
How to Calibrate:
The Baratza Encore has around 40 grind settings that you can calibrate, with 40 being the coarsest.
We would suggest to take around 100gms of beans and grind just a few at a time at different sizes. This will season the burrs inside and also help you calibrate at the same time.
Starting with a Brew Ratio of 16g of ground coffee to 32-38g of extraction in 18-24 seconds, pull a shot of Espresso.
If the shot is finishing too quickly, adjust the grinder to a finer grind size. If the shot is taking too long to finish, adjust the grinder to a coarser grind size. Pull the shot following the same parameters. Taste the Espresso shot.
If the Espresso shot tastes under extracted, i.e., overpowering acidity (sourness) and astringency, the grind size is too coarse and the flow rate is high. Adjust the grinder to a finer grind size and pull an Espresso shot. Taste the shot.
If the Espresso shot tastes over extracted, i.e., ashy, smoky flavour that goes hand in hand with a lack of any lingering finish of the espresso in the mouth, the grind size is too fine and flow rate is slow. Adjust the grinder to a coarser setting and pull an Espresso Shot. Taste the shot.
If there is a balance between the acidity, sweetness, bitterness and complexity, your Espresso is dialled in and you can continue to use these parameters.
How to Clean:
On a daily basis, make sure to not leave any coffee in the hopper.
Clean the hopper and ground bin with a cloth post use.
In order to make sure that your grinder is not clogging or doesn’t have oil build-up overtime. Use products like Grindz by Urnex to deep clean your burrs from inside.
