Put off getting a proper grinder for a very long time. I researched and settled on this one; we have been using a blade grinder for about 20 years.
I can tell you the coffee tastes better to us with this grinder. The grinding consistency is great. I hoped it would be a bit less noisy, but we do not believe it is vs. the blade, just a different sound. I would recommend this grinder to any serious coffee enthusiast. We use this grinder for the french press.
Dear Chris! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com
It's the right size, not too loud and does a fine job at grinding for a French Press.. It does not have a static electricity problem that some grinders have. One of the rating agencies downgraded it because it doesn't have a timer. Really? I simply put my measured amount of beans in the hopper and turn it on. What's so hard about that? I do not store roasted beans in the hopper because it is not sealed from the air. I keep them in sealed glass jars. It's more expensive than the Chinese made grinders, but the quality is there. (Designed in Seattle, built in Taiwan).

I have begun to roast my own coffee beans at home. My old burr grinder created large pieces, medium pieces, and small pieces all mixed with dust, no matter what grind setting I chose, which made roasting a waste of time. This grinder has a solid feeling switch, a strong sounding motor, and when comparing a pre ground bag with that out of the Encore (at standard setting 20) it is indistinguishable. Takes my fresh roasted beans and turns them into a seriously good cup of coffee. It is significantly larger than my previous model, but it still fits under my cabinets and for the near infinite increase in quality, I don't mind at all.

I wanted to replace my hand grinder with one of these for some time, but recently it became more of a necessity due to having less time in my morning routine. I tempered my expectations of some kind of massive increase in coffee quality, because there were other benefits to this purchase as well. But the coffee really does taste better -- by a lot! You won't regret buying one for sure.
The extra goodies provided by this site were nice too.

Likes: easy to change grind settings, consistent grind particle size, easy to clean by just grinding cleaning pellets once a month, a big improvement over my Krup blade type grinder. Color me happy.
Dislikes: a little too noisy, i wear ear protection.
Overall: i like it so much a bought this one for my son.

I just received the Baratza Encore - Conical Burr Coffee Grinder from frenchpresscoffee.com
While delivery was almost a week late (the USPS is lagging behind right now), we were happy to have it delivered!
Simple to inbox and assemble, this burr grinder works like a charm and delivers an absolutely uniform grind!

Purchased the Encore with portafilter based on a review in New York Magazine that rated this economical grinder as top Barista recommendation and I am not disappointed. The price is hard to beat for a conical burr grinder with portafilter and I love that you can buy any part if something breaks (I have been using and servicing the same Espresso machine for over 20 years so I don't like to throw things out). And it grinds finely and evenly enough for my Pavoni to produce an even crema. Noise is also pretty acceptable the machine makes an overall solid impression.

I received this as a gift from my mom for Christmas. I had been wanting an electric burr grinder and read very good things about the baratza encore. I previously used a Krupa blade grinder or my hand burr grinder which works well but is a labor of love- more than I have time for in the morning with two toddlers and another baby on the way! The grinder was exceptionally easy to set up and the results of fresh ground beans cannot be matched! I used the grinder on setting 28 for a French press as outlined in the instructions and got perfect results without too much grit in the bottom of the cup as used to happen with my blade grinder. My mom was very happy with the customer service and was able to get it shipped very quickly, just in time for Christmas.
