Have a passion for pour over? The Forte BG Brew Grinder is Baratza's latest addition to its grinder line-up, specially crafted for multiple prep methods! Named best commercial product at SCAA 2013, the Forte BG is a commercial flat burr grinder dedicated to perfecting medium to coarse grinds.

A sleek metal casing houses 54mm flat steel burrs, a high-torque DC motor, and precision weight control. Designed with commercial brew bars in mind, the Forte BG packs a ton of functionality into a tiny footprint. Line up multiples on your brew bar for a grinding power house or bring one home to take your pour over to a whole new level.

Features & Functionality of the Baratza Forte BG Brew Grinder

  • 54mm Flat Steel Burrs: These burrs produce accurate grinding and high throughput for medium to coarse grinds.
  • 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.
  • Digital Display: A backlit LCD touch screen is intuitive and easy to read, allowing you to dose by real-weight or by time.
  • Programmability: Program three buttons with desired weights ( +/- .1 gram) or by time ( +/- .1 sec).
  • Integrated Stopper Hopper: A newly designed removable hopper can prevent beans from falling down the grinder chute, making switching beans a snap. Features 30% larger capacity than other Baratza hoppers at 10.5 oz.
  • Removable Burrs: Use the included cast zinc tool to remove burrs for easy cleaning and maintenance.
  • Powerful Motor: The new high-torque motor has 70% more power than the current Vario model and grinds twice as long.
Pros
  • Commercial-Grade Juice - A new DC motor with 70% more power than the Vario-W stands up to the toughest commercial environments.
  • Stopper Hopper Standard - Swap out beans seamlessly and with no mess using the removable hopper. Add extensions to attain your desired hopper volume.
  • Zinc Burr Removal Tool - This high quality tool makes quick work of burr removal for regular maintenance.
Cons
  • Too Much Goodness - A score of grinding options can equal frustration when changing grinds for a new batch of beans.

How Does it Compare? The Forte is Baratza's beefiest grinder to date - 230 programmable settings, built-in dosing by weight or time, and an improved hopper make it a smart choice for cafes and discerning home users. Available with flat steel or ceramic burrs.
Tips and Tricks When cleaning the Forte Grinder, we do not recommend turing this grinder upside down to knock out loose grinds. Turning the Forte grinder upside down may upset the calibration, resulting in a broken grinder.

This grinder does well as a dedicated brew grinder. Grinds precisely, effortlessly and reliably thus far...20 pounds and counting. It's a well built machine, nice touch screen, relatively silently during grinding and bin has remained secured and intact through all grind sessions. Based on current report card, I'd buy another.

I've had several grinders over the years. Nothing beats Baratza! The Vario is a geat grinder. Just like the Vario, it actually brings out the undertones of the coffee. Paired with the Technivorm, and you've got a golden cup of coffee!
