Product Description

The pros have learned over the years that weight-based grinders improve efficiency and workflow. With that being said, the Forte BG is Baratza’s newest manual or batch brewing grinder. Equipped with 54mm flat steel burrs, this intellectual machine will grind to an accuracy of .2 grams - it doesn’t get much better than that!

More focused towards commercial use, the Forte BG has an all metal construction along with an intuitive interface and a modern design. This workhorse of a grinder also uses a powerful DC motor to keep up with your speedy self! You will not be disappointed, now the question is: are you ready to level-up?
