Description Technical Specs
The newest and most comprehensive top of the line model from Baratza.

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-BG is a compact, weight-based, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for brew methods requiring a medium to coarse grind. The Forté-BG incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including: all metal construction; small footprint; intuitive control panel; and solid macro/micro adjustment. Coffee professionals have learned, from using the Baratza Vario-W model in the brew bar setting, that weight-based grinding improved their workflow and efficiency. In response to the Vario-W success, and growing demand for this approach to grinding in the commercial environment, Forté-BG was introduced by Baratza. The Forté-BG is a durable workhorse using a 54mm flat steel burr, which produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from Press Pot to Drip. The Forté-BG design includes a grinding assembly with a threaded burr holder which screws firmly into an all metal grinding chamber for a more accurate grind. A larger gear to belt ratio, combined with a more efficient DC motor, increases the speed of grind and duty cycle. Flat burrs are made of hardened steel for those customers who fear stones, cements, or metal pieces found in some coffee beans and which can cause damage to ceramic burrs.

  • steel burrs were specifically designed to reduce the fines, enhancing flavor in the cup. The broad range of grind (500 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Forté-BG burrThe 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
  • The hopper holds approximately 300g 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 10g, once the hopper has been shut off (all weights are bean density dependent). A hopper extension is available that can add an additional 250g of capacity
  • The Forté-BG is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forté-BG burrs can be easily re-calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder
  • Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forté
    This version does not include a Portaholder
