Forté -BG

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 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 Forté-BG.

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. We re-designed the guts of the Vario-W for commercial use. 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.





Small on size, Big on Performance:
The Forte has the performance of a large grinder without the need for all the counter space.  Measuring only 5" wide and 7" deep, the Forte will fit on almost any counter.  At only 14.5" tall, it also fits under all overhead cupboards.  All function are controlled from the front, so walls or equipment directly beside it is not a problem.


Any way you like it:
The broad range of grind and the narrow particle distribution (bi-modal in espresso setting) are hallmarks of the professionalism of the Forte.

Fine tuning with ease:
Macro and Micro adjustments are instantly and repeatedly achievable with the intuitive adjustment system.  The Forte has 230 distinct settings of grind to satisfy even the most demanding coffee connoisseur.


One touch is all it takes:
Beautiful glass touch screen display allowed for easy, repeatable grinds.

Faster than a speeding...
The Forte grinds 2.0 grams/second at Espresso and 3.5 grams/second at Press.  The speed of grind is truly professional.



Harder than steel
Manufactured in Germany by Mahlkonig, the Forte BG's metal burrs are specifically designed to reduce fines and provide a remarkably consistant grind for manual brew bars.

A cool drive system:
The forte employs a high torque DC motor and an ultra-quiet belt-drive transmission.  The German timing belt provides important thermal isolation of motor and burrs, ensuring cooler coffee.

Service and Support:
One year manufacturer warranty.  If your grinder has a problem Baratza will see if they can resolve it over the website or phone or will promptly send a replacement grinder and return tag for your old one.
