Baratza Encore ESP
The Baratza Encore ESPresso now also grinds for espresso, and at a price point that redefines the espresso grinder category.
The Baratza Encore ESPresso is the most versatile and affordable coffee grinder money can buy. Just ask leading experts Lance Hendrik and Kyle Rowsell. The Baratza Encore has held top spot as the world’s most popular home coffee grinder for almost a decade. Extending its grind range to include espresso, elevates the Encore ESPresso into the espresso category, but at a fraction of the price of its competition. The Encore ESPresso and the Fellow Opis have created an all new stand-alone category. Truly all-purpose coffee grinders at entry level prices.
The ESPresso sits below the higher-end Sette. See a comparative review here. Whilst it retains its simplistic look and feel, the ESPresso has had some major upgrades.
DOSING CUP AND ADAPTER
The 54mm dosing cup (and included 58mm adapter ring) make it easy to transfer grounds directly into a portafilter for less mess and an even distribution that’s ready to tamp! Fits most home espresso machine portafilter baskets.
Manufactured in Europe, the Encore ESP’s 40mm conical M2 steel burrs produce consistent and precise grinds required for espresso and all brew methods.
QUICK-RELEASE BURR AND CLEANING
The Encore ESP’s cone burr is easily removable with no additional tools, making cleaning and maintenance very easy.
UPDATED GEARBOX FOR ESPRESSO
The Encore ESP 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.
SEAMLESS ADJUSTMENT BETWEEN ESPRESSO AND FILTER
The Encore ESP is optimized for espresso from #1-20 and produces excellent filter grinds from #21-40.
OPTIMISED MOTOR FOR COOL GRINDING
A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quieter operation, and permits long grinding duty cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cut-off switch.
CALIBRATED OUT THE BOX
An innovative burr calibration system ensures that each grinder comes ready to grind for most home espresso machine portafilter baskets. If necessary, the grinders can be user-calibrated.
UNIQUE SPEED CONTROL
With unique speed control, the Encore ESP uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 550 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
