I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.
We’ve looked at the features of both Breville Smart Grinder and Baratza Encore in individual posts. We’ve also compared them to many high-rated coffee grinders. Today, we put them in comparison to each other. How is the Breville Smart Grinder is different than the Baratza Encore? And which one is best for you to buy? Read on to find out…
|Feature||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 efficient DC motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 450 RPM, ensuring a smooth bean feed and reducing noise, heat and static buildup.
A convenient, front-mounted pulse button makes it easy to grind on demand into your brew basket. Whether you are looking for an espresso grinder or a grinder to help you explore that extensive range of brew methods, the Encore is a great all around home grinder.

Indeed the Baratza Encore features many more grind settings than the Breville Smart Grinder, however, the latter is still more advanced in so many ways. Starting with the quality of the unit itself, the Breville smart grinder is a sleek stainless steel unit that is built to last. The airtight sealed container is quite useful for saving coffee ground and keeping them fresh until use. And the fact that it features both automatic and manual settings makes it the perfect choice for anyone. On the other hand, the Baratza Encore is still quite a great entry level conical burr grinder and performs as it should, however, we’re not into it’s plastic-y material which makes it feel cheap, and it’s possible to find other grinders of the same material and features for less price. We’d recommend the Capresso Infinity or DeLonghi conical burr over the Baratza Encore.
