I have a Baratza coffee grinder of my own. The quality of my grinder is unmatched. Since, my son-in-law was looking at grinders capable of grinding espresso. I did quite a bit of research online to find a coffee grinder for him. This purchase was a no-brainer for me. The Baratza Encore ESP was the perfect choice for both grinding regular grinds but with the added feature of grinding very fine espresso grinds as well.
Here is a review of several grinders that includes the Baratza Encore ESP as well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_iSvPdkWfQ). As he says in the video, "there is no perfect grinder".
Another great review specifically about the Baratza Encore ESP is here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FivmbGfLOg0).
Lastly, I very much would recommend purchasing from this website. When I purchased it, they offered free shipping. That is the same as I could have purchased off Amazon or directly from Baratza. There was a USPS shipping snafu that I encountered. And, FrenchPressCoffee customer service was on it promptly and ultimately resolved the issue that USPS had.
Overall, you will be very happy with the purchase of the Baratza Encore ESP. My son-in-law is :)
Thank you for the honest review of the Baratza Encore ESP. We're glad to hear that it met your expectations and that your son-in-law is happy with it.
We had the perfect grinder that we bought years ago but it finally failed we missed it so much before the new one arrived. I even went to our local grocery store and bought coffee beans and ground them in the store...laborious and costly. I love the new one with the stepped up technology thank you for your awesome product!
We're so glad to hear that you love the Baratza Encore ESP Coffee and Espresso Grinder, Black! It's a great grinder with great features and we're glad that it's been able to meet your needs. Thank you for your kind words!
This is my second Baratza grinder ,the first was preciso that lasted ten years ,now has motor problems.
Though this is the cheaper version and there newest one specifically to grind for espresso makers i thought i would go for it .At grind setting 18 i was pulling espresso shots like a pro ,any finer and my gaggio classic would not like .
For sure it dose a better job grinding for espresso .grinds slower and makes a racket while grinding and hopper. bounces around some where my preciso did not do that , a little disapointed in that but for the price i can live with it ,
At grind setting 22 it works well with mocha pot ,might try 23 next draw to see if i can make it less strong .
So for the price point i will give it a 5 star
Thank you for your feedback! We're glad to hear that you're pleased with your purchase.
I had the best experience ordering my grinder from French Press Coffee. Received my order on time. Packaging was exceptional. Igor was so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be using them again.
Awesome. Glad to hear it. Thank you for your feedback.
