The Encore is not overly noisy as grinders go (a huge plus to me), and has a simple, clean, straightforward design. I have made both french press and drip coffee with it, and have been more than happy with the grind consistency. It really is a pleasure to use!
This is simply an amazing grinder. It did not take me long to figure out the different grind settings for the different ways I brew my coffee. I took a permanent marker and placed a mark for each one. It makes it very easy to switch grind levels! The grinder is also pretty quiet, for a grinder. I swear OSHA would have mandated hearing protection for my older grinder... not the Baratza!
Bought this as a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it! It's a super consistent grind and is very quiet!!! The hopper holds quite a bit of beans. Definitely recommend!!
A really good grinder for a decent price. Really happy I could get this during quarantine.
I decided on the Encore, contacted Igor with some availability questions, he quickly answered them. I placed my order and he promptly got it on the way. I weigh my beans before I grind. When the grinder chews up the last bean, I turn it off. Weight after is the same to .1g less. There may be a few slivers of chaff that flutter around the base of the catch bin. Easy to wipe up with a finger, not a bad mess at all. I'm satisfied with the medium range grind as I mostly do machine drip or pour over with 42g beans to 700ml water. Grinder is light enough to throw in a box with beans and pour over gear to carry to a friends for the weekend. Monday morning I get a text "thanks, my coffee SUCKS this morning." so, I may have to buy more gear for gifts in the future
My noisy, static riddled, clogging Mr Coffee filter may or may not have broken at the hands of my frustration so I needed a replacement. The grinder more than replaces it, it far exceeds it. The noise level is much more tolerable, the grind is even and the discharge chute design is far superior to the previous grinder. I wish there was a better indicator of the amount of coffee that has been ground, or some shutoff based on desired pot size. Even if not completely accurate my previous grinder did that so I didn't have to be so hands on. I could push the button and prepare the rest of the coffee while it ground. Because of that missing feature I have dropped a star, but I still recommend.
My purchase experience from frenchpresscoffee.com also was completely as I would have expected and I would not hesitate to order from them again in the future.
Love my French Press Coffee Grinder!
We love our new grinder. The quality and ease of use is just what we were promised. The transaction was smooth, the shipment was speedy, and we even had an interaction with the company owner who was super knowledgeable and helpful in regards to selection of the specific Baratza model. We will buy again from this vendor.
Bought the Sumatra coffee and Buratza Burr Grinder and pleased with both. Grinder wax simple to set up and use.
I have been wanting to buy this grinder for about two years now. I contacted a competitor of the site, and was told this grinder was too inconsistent for French Press. I was discouraged by that, so I sought a second opinion here at French Press.
I was told here this grinder would do a more than adequate job for French press.
I made the purchase, and so far have been very pleased.
I formally used both a very good manual grinder, which did a good job but unfortunately gave me tendonitis of the elbow (getting old), and a blade grinder which was very inconsistent.
This grinder so far makes a nice sea salt like grind for my French Press and has taken the guess work out of my morning routine.
