FORTE' BG Grinder
Forte AP vs. Forte BG
These grinders are available in two models: Forte AP and Forte BG. The "AP" stands for all-purpose and comes equipped with a porta filter holder and 54mm ceramic burrs in an espresso-optimized package. On the other hand, "BG" stands for "brew grinder" and comes built with 54mm steel burrs that produce high-clarity filter coffee.

Weight-Based - Set the weight of your desired ground coffee to more or less than 0.2g and the Forte BG will weigh the ground coffee while grinding, then stop automatically when it reaches your desired weight.
THE FORTE' BG IS A COMPACT, 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; 54 mm Burrs, SMALL FOOTPRINT; INTUITIVE CONTROL PANEL; AND SOLID MACRO/MICRO ADJUSTMENT. COFFEE PROFESSIONALS HAVE LEARNED, FROM USING THE VARIO-W IN THE BREW BAR SETTING,
The Forte' is available in two configurations. The Forte' BG (Brew Grinder) is designed for manual or batch brewing as the #1 and espresso as #2 and comes with a 54mm flat steel burr and a grounds bin.
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.
The Forte-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 Forte'-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, 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 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.
Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forte'.
Limited Warranty for Forte' Grinders is 1 year or 50 hours of cumulative motor run time, whichever comes first.
