• Baratza Forte Brew Grinder

The Forte-BG is a compact, weight-based, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for brew methods requiring a medium to coarse grind. The Forte-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 Vario-W 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, we have developed the Forte-BG.



FEATURES:

 

INTUITIVE INTERFACE
The Forte-BG allows you to dose by weight or time. Our signature dose-by-weight is accurate to plus or minus .2 gram. The touch activation awakens your screen with LED backlit technology. The touch screen controls all operations with three programmable dose presets; Up or Down arrows to increase or decrease dose values; and TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP.

BURRS
The Fort歉-BG grinder comes with 54 mm steel burrs that produce an accurate and consistent grind for a variety of manual and small batch brews. Our 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 Forte-BG burrs.

ADUSTMENT/GRIND 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.

HOPPER
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.

RE-CALIBRATING BURRS
The Forte-BG is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forte-BG burrs can be easily re-calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.

CLEANING BURRS
Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forte.

ACCESSORIES
Hopper extender: An extension that can add 250g of capacity to the existing 300g bean hopper. Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
