The Baratza Encore - known as one of the most beloved coffee grinders by both home baristas and professionals - gets an update and a new take, now focusing on espresso. Though they may look the same, we break down the differences between the Encore and the Encore ESP.

While they might look similar at first glance, it’s what’s under the hopper that makes all the difference. The Encore was first introduced to make “cafe-quality” grinding available to home users at a friendly price point. As home espresso grows in demand, gear prices seem to be following suit. That’s why the Encore ESP was born: to ensure that top-tier espresso grinding is affordable, while living up to the simplicity and consistency that Baratza is known for!

Don't let the familiar look of the Encore ESP fool you, it is not just a superficial update to the classic Encore that we know and love. Theses are similar while also vastly different grinders.

While the Encore was made by Baratza to give the home barista professional grinding capabilities for a relatively modest price point, the Encore ESP takes these design values and applies them to the espresso realm. We'll break down the differences and similarities for you.
