  • Upgrading to an Electric Burr Grinder...is the Baratza Encore a good choice?

    Hi all,
    I am currently using a Hario Mini Mill hand grinder..considering upgrading to an electric burr grinder as the manual grinder does take quite awhile if I am making extra cups.
    For its price, the Baratza Encore looks like an attractive choice. Any thoughts from users out there? Thanks!

      The Via Venezia - a manual espresso machine.

        I recently brought a new coffee machine and grinder and was looking extensively. I ended up getting the compak m3 push and couldn't be happier.
        It was $10 more expensive that the rocky but worth every cent.
        I use it with my espresso machine and my wife for filter. Easy to change from one extreme to the other.

          I'm on a small budget hence am considering the Encore. How much does the compak cost?

            Check sponsors ^^^^. Chris from Talk Coffee had a K3 push for $469. Other cheaper options if on a tight budget is Breville smart grinder or even Sunbeam em0480.

              Thanks mmmcoffee for the suggestions. Breville seems to have really good reviews on this forum as well, might have a look at that too.

                I suspect the Breville Smart Grinder will do the job nicely and they are well priced. I have one and its better than my hand grinder so you should have better coffee.

                  Hey brownbean, the smart grinders are apparently a great machine for price. I have a Porlex hand grinder which I use at work and camping with my Aeropress. Love my hand grinder but not for my daily grind though.

                  Enjoy and hope it goes well!!
