Forte BG Brew Grinder
The Forte BG grinder won the coveted award for Best New Product in the Commercial category at the Specialty Coffee Association Expo back in 2013. This is the very same grinder that baristas utilize to produce the pour-over coffee you relish at your favorite café.
Created specifically for pour-over bars that offer multiple options, the Forte BG grinder boasts an impressive array of features. It is designed to be both feature-rich and high-capacity, making it an almost indestructible option for your business needs. If you are considering opening a coffee shop, the Forte BG can help make your dreams a reality. It has a small footprint, a user-friendly multifunction touchscreen, and is equipped with sturdy grind size adjustments, which makes it ideal for a busy brew bar. With a daily capacity of 5 pounds, and grind-by-weight functionality, it is undoubtedly the top choice for a brew bar.
Wired Magazine describes the Forte BG as an "ultra-precise, super-durable beefcake". In fact, an updated Forté display is now being rolled out in production grinders. However, even if your Forte BG has a different display, you needn't worry, it will still function in the same manner.
The Forté-AP coffee grinder offers two distinct dosing options - weight or time. Our renowned dose-by-weight system is incredibly precise, with an accuracy of plus or minus .2 gram. To activate the machine, simply touch the control panel, which utilizes cutting-edge LED backlit technology. The touch screen interface grants you complete control over all functions, including the ability to program up to three dose presets, adjust dose values with up or down arrows, and utilize functions like TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP. The maximum dose that can be programmed is 120 grams.
The Forté-BG coffee grinder is equipped with high-quality 54 mm steel burrs that generate a precise and uniform grind suitable for a wide range of manual and small-batch brewing methods. These steel burrs were meticulously crafted to minimize the amount of fine particles produced during grinding, resulting in a heightened flavor experience in the brewed coffee. The Forté-BG burrs excel in both the breadth of grind sizes available (ranging from 230 microns to 1150 microns) and the absence of fine particles, which sets them apart from other burr types and demonstrates their superior quality.
The grinder is equipped with an all-metal adjustment system that allows for both macro and micro-adjustments. This system provides a confident and secure feel while adjusting the grind settings. The macro-adjustment feature facilitates the transition from fine to coarse grinding in 10 easily discernible and repeatable settings. To further refine the grind, a secondary micro-adjustment mechanism divides each of the 10 macro steps into 26 additional settings, affording the user the ability to fine-tune the grind with exceptional ease. This level of precision enables the user to dial in the exact grind required for their preferred brewing method.
