Baratza Encore ESP Automatic Grinder Black
Baratza Encore ESP is an automatic coffee grinder for home use. Thanks to a wide grind range, Encore ESP easily copes with precise coffee grinding for both espresso and pour-over brewing methods. The grinder is intuitive, takes up little space, and grinds coffee in seconds. It is perfect for those starting their adventure with coffee and for more demanding home baristas.
Design and use
The grinder has a minimalist design, it is compact and made of plastic that does not collect fingerprints. It is an on demand grinder - coffee is ground right before brewing straight into the container. The grinder is equipped with two containers - the larger one for pour-over brewing methods and a smaller espresso dosing cup with a diameter that fits most portafilters (diameter 54mm and an additional adapter increasing the diameter to 58mm). Grinding is started by a pulse button which gives you complete control of the quantity of coffee ground. In addition, Encore ESP is equipped in an IN/OFF switch.
Encore ESP offers 40 grind settings, from very fine to coarse. The range between 1 and 20 is suitable for a moka pot and espresso, while settings between 21 and 40 will work for pour-over methods such as Chemex, AeroPress, dripper, siphon or French press. Regardless of the grinding setting, the grinder has low retention - only minimal amount of ground coffee remains in the grinder.
Manufactured in Europe, the Encore ESP’s 40mm conical M2 steel burrs produce consistent and precise grinds required for espresso and all brew methods. The Encore ESP's cone burr is easily removable with no additional tools, making cleaning and maintenance very easy.
A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quieter operation, and permits long grinding duty cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch. With unique speed control, the Encore ESP uses a combination of gear and electronic speed reduction to control the rotation of the burr to 550 RPM. This slow speed reduces heat, noise, and static generation in the grinder. It also ensures that the beans feed smoothly into the burrs.
