About this deal

The Encore has 40 grind settings, and it'll do fine for brew methods, however, if you're looking for a grinder for espresso, the Encore won't quite get fine enough for espresso with standard filter baskets.

The Eureka Mignon Oro is the first real contender I've seen in terms of a grinder aimed at competing with the Niche Zero. Features:

So if you can, I would very highly recommend that you skip this section and move swiftly on, but if you can't stretch the budget & you absolutely must get one of the cheaper blade grinders, then have a look at these:

The only negative for espresso is that worm dial adjustment grinders (see the Iberital MC2 below) give you a slightly better ability to finely tune in the grind, this is a stepped grinder although the steps are very small.If you're someone who wants to play around with your grinder over time, doing things like having bits 3D printed, replacing the de-clumper, or upgrading the burrs, then the DF64 might be something you'll enjoy owning as a lot of people do. If you're someone who just wants to buy a grinder and use it out of the box, and if you're a bit more focused on overall build quality and looks, you might want to have a look at the Niche Zero. Blade coffee grinders mangle more than they grind. The beans are repeatedly hit by rotating blades at a high speed (a literal death by a thousand cuts).
