Although it’s nice not to have to take that extra step, it’s also not a huge inconvenience to do so, and many people who invest in a daily coffee routine are already doing this. The Baratza Encore is the ultimate entry-level grinder - The Encore consistent grinds for brew methods from espresso (fine) to Cafetière (coarse) and everything in between. Although even the most consistent burr grinder will produce at least some particles that are smaller and larger than you’d like, we found that the Encore performed incredibly well at grinding evenly. Though it doesn’t grind as well as the Baratza Encore or the Virtuoso+ in terms of range or consistency, the OXO is a very capable grinder with very good grind quality and a simple, intuitive design. The rings of these burr sets are lined with knobby protrusions that look more like teeth than sharpened grooves, and they act like teeth, too, chewing and breaking beans instead of cutting them.

If you’re willing to pay more, the Baratza Virtuoso+ is similar to the Encore in shape and size, yet it has a faster, slightly different burr set, a digital timer, and a heavier, mostly metal base, which gives it a higher-end look and feel. Grinds Left in Grinder: To maximize freshness, the Encore minimises the ground coffee left in the grinder. We rated electric burr grinders first and foremost on the quality and consistency of their grind, the number-one thing a good grinder must do well. 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. he said it still handles “both small daily grinds for my Chemex and really big grinds for when I make a big batch of cold brew” without issue.Instead, you have to hold down the timer dial button for three seconds to activate the Pulse Mode; to deactivate the Pulse Mode, you spin the dial. Kyle Ramage said he worries more about there being too many boulders than too many fines, partly because fines are inevitable as brittle beans are jostled or ground, and partly because he thinks boulders are what really muddy the flavor of the coffee. The go-to entry level electric grinder, great for manual brewed coffee and compact enough for any worktop. With most coffees, the C2’s handle spins with almost no resistance, making this model almost a pleasure to use, after trying the other manual grinders. You can also make finer adjustments in each of these categories, to see exactly which size grind you prefer most for which method.

These measurements told us how much of the coffee was dissolved into the water, and thus how successful the extraction of the grinds was. In contrast with many entry-level machines, the Encore and the Virtuoso+ tend to have a broader grinding range, which is desirable—you want as broad a range as possible, especially if you regularly use different brewing methods. Timemore also makes the newer C3, which has the same body with a new burr set that it says is better designed, and based on the one in its higher-end models.Conical burrs are more of a V shape, with the center burr fitting into the outer burr, both of them also lined with sharp-edged grooves that cut up the beans as they press together. We offer a fantastic range of carefully chosen, freshly roasted coffees, including stunning single origins and mega blends. Being able to replace all kinds of parts—such as the entire burr set (not just the top), the bins, and even the motor—is also a plus. We know that it still may be a tough sell for those who don’t consider themselves major coffee geeks, but we think spending more is well worth it for most coffee drinkers—whether that worth is measured in more cups made at home, fewer dead grinders sent to the landfill, or just added daily pleasure from making your own delicious coffee.

But the added digital timer is accurate to a tenth of a second, and it saves the time you’ve set it to—so you can grind the same amount of coffee each morning with almost no effort or measuring. With an 8oz clear grounds bin, you never need to grind more than you’ll actually use (hooray for no stale coffee! Burr grinders can grind coarsely enough for a traditional French press or cold-brew batch, but they can also do a medium grind for drip and a medium-fine grind for pour-over. To clean or even repair the machine yourself, you just twist off the hopper and remove the top burr. We also feel duty bound to address the fact that the Encore is not one of the most cutting edge in terms of external design, which is a bit of a bummer.The hopper can hold 8oz (227g) of whole beans, and the clear grounds bin has a fill line to indicate how much to grind. This can vary depending on a number of external factors: a room’s humidity, the type and age of the coffee you’re grinding, the grind setting, whether your machine has a flat or conical burr, and even what kind of surface your grinder sits on. This compact grinder is easy to use and has a wider range than most budget grinders, but it’s a bit less consistent than our top picks and less repairable. Grind Adjustment: Perfect for grinding fine for espresso but equally as good when grinding for filter and aeropress.

But they were confusing to use and took longer to calibrate, with dials and digital settings that were unintuitive, inaccurate or overly detailed for most users. Optimized for precision, the Encore™ ESP delivers the grind resolution you need to brew creamy, syrupy shots of espresso. The Baratza Encore uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr between 405 to 495 RPM. Grind Adjustment: Turn the hopper and with 40 settings you can quickly adjust from fine for espresso to coarse for French Press.The only complaint I have after more than a year using it is that the grind adjustment dial does not have any numbers on it to help set it up to the desired grind size. It’s the most affordable grinder Baratza sells, but it’s also a workhorse, and it could easily be the only grinder you’ll ever need.
