Forte AP vs. Forte BG


The Forté-BG (Brew Grinder) comes with a 54mm flat steel burr producing an accurate medium to coarse grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from french press to drip. The steel burrs were specifically designed to reduce the fines, enhancing flavor in the cup. 

The BG features a beautiful and intuitive glass touch screen, solid micro/macro adjustment and is constructed of all metal -- giving it remarkable heft.  A unique feature of this machine is the ability to convert a dose from weight to time. You can grind by weight, toggle over with one click to see the precise time it took to grind, and then save the resulting weight as a timed measurement. 

The removable hopper has an innovative bean shutoff feature which makes changing out beans easy, mess-free and with very little bean waste. The hopper holds approximately 10 ounces (300g) of coffee, but a hopper extension is available that can add an additional 9 ounces (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.

• Powerful Motor - The new high-torque motor has 70% more power than the current Vario model and grinds twice as long.

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

WARRANTY Limited Warranty for Forte' Grinders is 1 year or 50 hours of cumulative motor run time, whichever comes first.

INTUITIVE INTERFACE 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. Max programmable dose is 120g.

BURRS 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.

 Accessories: (which may be purchased separately) HOPPER EXTENDER An extension that can add 275g of capacity to the existing 300g bean hopper. Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
