I have the Encore. It's an excellent grinder but it is slow and quite loud. I accept those cons because of it's outstanding grind consistency. Although, we have a DeLonghi Ariete in our beach house. It is quiet, fast and produces an extremely consistent grind as well. Perhaps a tiny bit messy compared to the Encore but it only cost me $65 on eBay vs $100 for the Encore which I got from a special promotionfrom Peets coffee 3-4 years ago. I also had two of these Chinese grinders which were OK but messy.I debated the encore but decided I probably didn’t need 40 different grind settings , I purchased the capresso infinity with 16 grind settings . It works great , quieter compared to some others but only has a simple timer with auto shutoff . The encore is probably the most popular Grinder for those who seek a higher level machine but doesn’t break the bank , oh and they can be repaired

I'm curious to see if any of the dozens of different Chinese models on Amazon pan out to be comparable to Baratza's models or some of the other quality grinders in the near future.
