Description Technical Specs
Baratza has taken the Vario-W and redesigned all the interior components to be suited for commercial use - creating a more robust construction and motor/speed efficiency.

The Forte is available in two configurations. The Forte-BG (Brew Grinder) designed for manual or batch brewing modes and comes with a 54mm flat steel burr and a grounds bin. The Forte-AP (All Purpose grinder) can grind from coarse to fine and comes with a 54 mm flat ceramic burr, grounds bin for use when grinding by weight, and a portaholder for use when grinding directly into your portafilter. The Forté-AP is a durable workhorse using two 54 mm flat ceramic Ditting burr set, which produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from espresso to press pot. One does need to be careful that there are no stones, cement, or metal objects, sometimes found in coffee beans, which can damage any ceramic burrs. The benefit of ceramic is that there is less heat retention which leads to less burning of the coffee grinds before even brewing in the some of the most demanding serving situations. The Forté-AP is a compact, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for all brew methods. It incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including an all metal construction, small footprint, intuitive control panel, and solid macro/micro adjustment. It offers the ability to grind by time for espresso dosing, or by weight. At small commercial retail level, office use and coffee enthusiasts find this grinder to be a versatile unit. This grinder adapts to many situations - as a small restaurant and office espresso/brew grinder, as a roaster demo grinder for wholesale tasting, or being a dedicated grinder for decaf or single origin coffee bean.
  • Intuitive interface - allows you to dose by weight or time Dosing by weight is accurate to +/- 0.2 grams. The touch activation awakens your screen with LED backlit technology. The touch screen controls all operations with 3 programmable dose presets. Up / Down arrows to increase / decrease dose values. and TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP.
  • Espresso dosing - ability to convert a weight preset into a timed value that is accurate within +/- 0.5 grams of the set point. This allows for weight oriented dosing for espresso.
  • 54 mm ceramic flat burr set - accurate and precise grinding at an average of 2 grams / sec for espresso and 3.5 - 3.7 grams / sec for press pot. The range of grind is 230 - 1150 microns.
  • Adjustment / grinding range - an all-metal macro and micro adjustment system produces a positive feel and secure grind setting. The macro adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro adjust further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 26 distinct settings. These steps, plus the new metal detents, enable fine tuning with ease, dialing in the exact grind for the preferred brew method being used.
  • Bean Hopper - holds approximately 300 grams of coffee. An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans. Bean "waste” (below the stopper) averages a surprisingly low 10 grams, once the hopper has been shut off (all weights are bean density dependent). A hopper extension is available that can add an additional 250 grams.
  • Re-calibrating burrs - initially calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, they can be easily re-calibrated using a special calibration tool included with the grinder.
  • Cleaning burrs - easily removable for cleaning using the cast zinc tool included with the grinder
  • Comes with PortaHolder and Bin
