9. Baratza Encore Grinder
The coffee grinder of choice.
The Encore is lauded by coffee experts as THE go-to entry level grinder for those brewing coffee at home. The Encore gives a great grind for drip/manual brew and also grinds fine enough for espresso.
Featuring 40 individual grind settings, from fine to coarse, the Encore can please any palate with its gamut of accurate and repeatable grind settings. The Encore has an accurate medium to coarse grind for the increasingly popular manual brew methods such as pour-over, Aeropress, Siphon and Chemex. The specially designed burrs give a precise grind with minimal fines for a flavorful, balanced extraction when making espresso.
“Baratza is to coffee grinders what Wüsthof is to kitchen knives: solid, understated, durable. There’s a reason why its grinders are carried by many of the more conscientious independent coffee shops.
