INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Encore™ Conical Burr Coffee Grinder. With the
Encore™, it’s now easier than ever to make professional quality coffee.
Below are detailed descriptions of the features that make the Encore™ stand
out from other grinders in its class.
Conical burrs
Manufactured in Europe, the Encore’s ™40mm conical burrs will grind for any
style of coffee. These conical burrs produce a consistent grind that is accurate
and fine enough to produce Espresso, as well as any brew method you may
choose. The hardened steel burrs are durable and will remain sharp for many
years.

Grind Adjustment
The range of grind and accuracy of settings is truly impressive. The Encore™
has 40 distinct settings to enable grinding from Espresso to French Press, with
the simple turn of the hopper.
Efficient Motor
The Encore™ houses a powerful DC motor that produces more than four times the
output with twice the efficiency of a standard AC motor found in most grinders
in this class. The motor spins at less than one-third the speed, making it much
quieter and lower in pitch. Extremely well-made, the motor is built to handle
long-duty cycles. In addition, it possesses a thermal safety device that protects
the motor from overheating and automatically resets once the motor cools.

OPERATION
Before Using Your Grinder
Prior to using your Encore™ grinder for the first time you should wash the bean
hopper and ground coffee bin in warm soapy water. See the section on Care
and Cleaning for instruction on how to remove and reinstall these parts. There
may be some rust on the burrs when you receive your grinder. This is normal
and will disappear after a small amount of coffee has been ground. To remove
the rust and season the burrs, grind 1/4 pound of coffee and discard.
Initial Operation
Place the Encore™ on a level surface and plug into a correct voltage, AC outlet
only. Remove the lid from the hopper by lifting off. Pour the desired quantity of
roasted whole coffee beans into the hopper up to a maximum of 8 oz. Replace
the lid. Ensure the ground coffee bin is fully inserted.

EncoreTM Manual
Setting the Grind Control
Slowly rotate the bean
hopper
clockwise
or
counter clockwise to
align the indicator on
the bean hopper with the
desired number setting
on the grind scale. (Lower
number=smaller particle
size) Select the correct
grind for the brew process
you are using.
Turning the hopper to the right (counter-clockwise) produces a bigger particle
size and left (clockwise) produces a smaller particle size.
The settings shown in the table below can be used as a general guideline. The
actual grind size for a particular setting will vary depending on many factors
including: degree of roast (light vs. dark), freshness, humidity, type of bean, oil
content, etc. With use, you will determine the setting that is right for your taste,
brewing style and your favorite beans.

Operation
You may rotate the On/Off switch
clockwise or counter clockwise from
any position without damaging it.
The quantity of ground coffee you need depends on the type of bean, coarseness
of the grind, brewing method and personal taste.

EncoreTM Manual
Front Mounted Pulse
Button
For short duration grinding, the
Encore™ is equipped with a front
mounted pulse button. It can be used
for grinding directly into an espressobrewing basket. Remove the grounds
bin and position the espresso- basket
inside the grinder directly below the
pulse button (see photo). Push and
hold the pulse button to grind. Grinding
will stop when the button is released.
Note:
It is important that the espresso basket
is held below the discharge chute so
the coffee powder can fall freely into
the basket. Holding the basket up
tight to the discharge chute will cause
coffee to back up and jam your grinder.

CARE and CLEANING
Removing the Bean Hopper
Remove all beans from the hopper then
press the front mounted pulse button
to run any remaining beans through
the grinder. Remove the plug from the
power outlet. Remove the hopper by
rotating it counterclockwise until it
stops, and then lift the bean hopper off
of the grinder housing.
Removing the Ring Burr
Pull the silicone seal off the top of the
Ring Burr. Remove the ring burr by
lifting it straight up out of the grinder by
the lifting tabs. If the burr does not lift
out, ensure that the grind adjustment
ring is turned fully counterclockwise.

EncoreTM Manual
Cleaning the Grounds Bin, Hopper and Burrs
Wash the grounds bin, hopper, and the hopper lid in warm soapy water, then
rinse and dry.
If the grinder is used daily, the burrs (steel or ceramic) should be cleaned at least
every few months using tablets (see below for Automatic Cleaning) or with a
stiff brush. Proper cleaning enables the burrs to achieve the most consistent
grind possible. Cleaning also removes some coffee oils, which will stale and
degrade the flavor of the ground coffee.
Caution
Do not put the bean hopper, hopper lid,
ground coffee bin, or PortaHolder in the
dishwasher. Hand wash only. Do not
immerse the grinder housing in water.
Do NOT wash the burrs with water.
Replacing the Ring
Burr
Ensure that the black adjustment
ring is rotated counterclockwise as
EncoreTM Manual
14
far as it will go. Replace the burr by
lining up the red tab on the burr with
the rectangular cutout on the black
adjustment ring. Wiggle and push
down firmly on the ring burr to ensure
that it seats properly. After replacing
the burr, replace the silicone seal by
lining up the two slots in the silicone
seal with the small tabs on the top of
the ring burr and slide the seal onto
the ring burr.
Replacing the Bean
Hopper
To replace the bean hopper, line up
the two small tabs on the base of the
hopper with their respective slots in
the top of the grinder housing and
insert the hopper into the grinder.
Once the hopper is in place, rotate it
clockwise.

EncoreTM Manual
Clearing a Clogged Grinder
If your grinder is not dispensing coffee normally, it could be clogged with coffee
and ground coffee gets backed up into the grounds chute and grinding chamber.
It can also happen with the buildup of coffee powder over time.
Automatic Cleaning
A thorough, fast, and easy cleaning can
be accomplished using Full Circle(tm)
biodegradable grinder cleaning tablets.
Full Circle tablets are designed to
dislodge coffee particles and absorb
and remove odors and coffee oil residue.
Remove all beans from the hopper and
run the grinder to remove any beans
inside. Place the recommended amount
of Grindz into the empty grinder hopper.
Adjust the grind setting to 30, insert the
grounds bin and use the pulse button
to run the grinder. Grind all of the
tablets into the bin. Once complete, we
recommend grinding approximately
30g coffee to remove any tablet residue.
