#coffee Baratza Encore Grinder Coffee Grinder | Seattle Coffee Gear

I bought a Baratza Encore a month ago and am using it with a normal filter basket in my portafilter (in a Gaggia Classic), and, as the brilliant video by the folks at Seattle Coffee Gear say (with a similar machine), I am able to produce what I consider stunningly good espresso, with the grinder set on 9 (?the beans have something to do with it). As for the "pressurized filter", at least the plastic insert and altered filter basket included with my Gaggia, along with two normal filter baskets, it is a gimmick device that can only, as far as I can tell, produce fake crema and very bad coffee-ish liquid, no matter how precise and durable (or expensive) your grinder is.
