Baratza's Forte comes as a welcome addition to their family of small but powerful grinders. Multitudes of coffee professionals use the Baratza Vario in mobile setups as well as on pourover bars. The Forte is designed for these commercial applications, and built to handle the demands of busy brewing stations and compact espresso setups. The Forte also adds some user-friendly new technological features, such as the touchscreen controls, weight-to-time conversions, and easier precision adjustments.
The Forté-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.
The Forté-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 (230 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Forté-BG burrs.
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 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.
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.
