Baratza Encore coffee grinder

€ 200.00

Baratza's Encore Grinder for coffee or espresso is an entry-level burr grinder that improved upon the features of the previous Maestro Plus generation. The upgraded gear box provides improved durability and decreased noisiness and 450RPMs. Unlike its predecessors, the Baratza Encore can effectively be used with traditional espresso machines. While it is fine enough for pressurized espresso systems with some additional finessing it can work with non-pressurized espresso machines as well. This is an easy to use, easy to adjust grinder that offers a consistent grind at a good price.
Details:
Burrs: Updated 40mm hardened steel conical burrs
Grind Adjustment: 40 settings from fine to coarse allows a grind range of 250 to 1200 microns
Motor: A 450 RPM DC motor with gear speed reducer helps keep the beans cool while grinding. Gear speed reducer also reduces noise as well as heat and static build up. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting thermal cutoff switch.
Gearbox 2.0: Adds increased strength and durability of the drive transmission, all the while decreasing the noise output. The new gearbox includes a new drive shaft, motor mounting plate and bushings, as well as a new drive gear made of 15% glass filled thermo plastic. This thermo plastic is quieter than the prior metal gear, wears better, and is more shock resistant. During Baratza's testing of the Encore, stainless steel screws were thrown into the burrs, and in every case the motor/gear/burrs stopped immediately due to the thermal cutout, helping preserve the gears. The gearbox is automatically-resettable if this were to happen.
On-Demand Grinding: Front-mounted pulse button allows for easy, on-demand grinding, helpful for when you're grinding directly into a brew basket.
