The Encore is the go-to entry level grinder for those brewing coffee at home. It's recommended as an entry level grinder for manual brewing methods (non-espresso).
Whenever anyone asks me what the single best way to improve their home coffee is, I always start out by asking them how they grind their coffee. If they buy pre-ground coffee or they use a blade grinder buying a good burr grinder is the single biggest way they can make their coffee better. The Encore is the best bang for buck entry level grinder out there and it's an easy recommendation to anybody starting out with brewing at home. It's great for French Press, Chemex, Aeropress, Drip pot, cold brew, everything except espresso.
