To clean or even repair the machine yourself, you just twist off the hopper and remove the top burr. Unlike those on many coffee grinders, the markers on this machine are easy to use—the timer times (more or less) in actual seconds marked, and the grind setting markers offer a wide span of small, easy-to-read increments, making tiny adjustments uncomplicated.

While I concede that the physical labor of grinding some coffee beans is light when compared to, say, building the Egyptian pyramids, I’d rather not have to do that, especially first thing every morning. Equally important, the Counter Culture team taught us that no professional tool was as accurate as a trained palate when it comes to determining over- and under-extraction. Most of us like the things that live on our counter to look great, and it’s hard to pass up a grinder in a cool pastel color or sleek shape for the humble rectangle and triangle of the Baratza. Some coffee grinders, like those from OXO, Smeg, and Zwilling, allow you to adjust the hopper before removing it so that you can move it with the beans inside.What’s more, if you want to adjust your approach to make a better cup of coffee, you have to play around with multiple variables that can actually mask the changes you’re making. Burrs: Manufactured in Europe, the Encore's 40 mm conical burrs will grind for many styles of coffee. 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. The sifter works by separating boulders and fines into separate compartments; grounds at the ideal size are left in between. The space between the two burrs determines the final size of the coffee grounds, so the grounds end up being a much more consistent size than anything buzzed in a blade grinder.

Grinds Left in Grinder: To maximize freshness, the Encore minimises the ground coffee left in the grinder. Because of how a blade grinder works, it’s always going to “lose track” of individual beans and bits, and so it’ll make some into fine powder, while leaving other bits as big half-bean hunks. The most precise way to measure coffee is to weigh it because beans are not all the same shape, size, or density. The ESP version has slightly different burr material (Sharper M3 steel, slightly different burr geometry) but the main differenced is that the pitch of the thread changes mid way throught he grinding range. If you remember that it’s for non-espresso home brewing, it’ll put both blade and manual grinders to shame without skipping a beat.She switched because she found a Baratza for free on the street, but otherwise, she would have happily continued using the OXO.

We found this didn’t completely eliminate static or mess, though in our long term testing, the OXO was noticeably tidier than the Baratza Encore. Some grinders do make claims about using special types of glass, magnets or metal to reduce static electricity. 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.

Even the best burr grinders will produce some fines and boulders, but good grinders will yield a lot fewer of them, and the ones at the right size will be more consistently shaped, too. Steel burrs, some coated with various other metals, are the most common, and are durable and easy to maintain, and they can be cleaned with a stiff wire brush. Senior editor Marguerite Preston used the OXO grinder at home for about two years before switching to the Baratza Encore. With an 8oz clear grounds bin, you never need to grind more than you’ll actually use (hooray for no stale coffee!
