The Baratza Encore has over 40 different grinding settings to very accurately adjust the grinding. Do you make coffee using a percolator? Grind the beans coarsely. If you want to make coffee with a coffee filter machine, use a finer grind. You can set the grinding setting by turning the bean hopper. It's useful to place the container underneath the spout so you can collect the ground coffee directly. The grinding stops when you press the off button. Do you have a piston machine? It's also possible to place the filter holder under the spout, so it's filled directly with coffee.
