A lot of people ask us for recommendations for home coffee makers and we always reply with a question: "What kind of grinder are you using?" Burr grinders mill beans to an even size, which makes for way better coffee. The Baratza Encore is a perfect burr grinder for home. It’s a great value and can help you make a sweeter, cleaner brew. Note: this grinder won’t grind fine enough to be used for espresso. For that, we recommend the Preciso.
