Sometimes having something that is a nice to have, is exactly that. While the single dose hopper is not a necessity it is nice to have. Essentially the single dose hopper replaces the standard Baratza hopper on the Encore, Virtuoso+, Vario and Forte grinders.

What we like

  • It is easy to fit, and in fact, we found it was a tighter fit than our original hopper.
  • Once one the grinder does look neat.
  • The top (or rubber cup) can be used for dosing in. It is shaped so the one side suits pouring
  • The “rubber” cup or top seems to make the grinding quieter.
  • You can “pump” residual grinds out by lifting and lowering the top.

Not so keen on

  • The rubber top can be fiddly to get on.
  • The “pop-corn” stopper or bean filter feeder, seems higher than it needs, so this means “pop-corning” still occurs.
  • Price. As a nice to have, it can feel a bit pricey. Would be great to have this as an option when ordering the grinders, rather than the hopper as standard.
