Our roastery will be closed from midday, Monday 24 December and reopening with a revived summer glow on Wednesday 2 January. All orders placed before midday Thursday 20 December will be dispatched by the end of the day on Thursday and all orders placed after midday will be roasted and dispatched when we return in the New Year.

From everyone at Five Senses, we hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

Baratza Encore

An elegantly conceived, conical burr grinder designed for manual brewing.

At least double the weight of most domestic grinders, the Encore has a rock-solid feel and dramatically increased stability. Its forty grind settings are ideal for all slow brew methods such as filter, syphon, plunger and percolator. Additional features include a large 225g bean hopper and a 140g removable anti-static ground coffee bin.

Please note: we at Five Senses do not recommend the Encore for espresso brewing (when using a standard commercial type filter basket). If however, you have a smaller espresso machine with a pressurised basket, then the Encore will be an ideal pairing with your espresso machine. What is a pressurised basket, we hear you say?
