Hi everyone,

I'm currently looking to replace my Breville BCG450XL (which I don't like, but paid 40$ for it...). Found here topics about the Baratza Encore. Anyone is using it ? Is is worth the upgrade from the Breville ? Any other recommandations for the same price (around 125$us) ?

I have a Baratza Virtuoso for sale on Kijji for around 200.00. If you are interested.
I'm not a senior member so I can't sell it thru this web site.

I'm planning to upgrade to the Baratza Preciso.  The Virtuoso is a very good all around grinder (French press, Aeropress...) but for espresso It is limited.  It all depends on what kind of coffee you drink.  Seatle Coffee Gear web site have great reviews on all Baratza's products.

I'm more of a cappucino guy (for now), so the need is "limited" compared to a real espresso geek...
