Baratza Forte BG - Brew Grinder

INTRODUCTION
The Forté is available in two configurations. The Forté-BG (Brew Grinder) is designed for manual or batch brewing and comes with a 54mm flat steel burr and a grounds bin. The Forté-AP (All Purpose grinder) can grind from coarse to fine and comes with a 54mm flat ceramic burr, grounds bin for use when grinding by weight, plus a portaholder for use when grinding directly to your portafilter.
*Grind by weight - Good for Drip Coffee *
This is the grinder your barista uses to make those pour-overs you enjoy at the café. Designed as a commercial solution to multioffering pour-over bars, the Forte BG is a feature-forward, high-capacity, near-bulletproof grinder. If you have dreams of opening a coffee shop, the Forte BG can help make those dreams come true. Its small footprint, multifunction touchscreen, sturdy grind size adjustments, high daily capacity (5lbs per day) and grindby-weight functionality make the Forte BG the premier choice for a brew bar. The 54mm flat steel burrs are engineered to produce an accurate and precise grind, deliver exceptional cup quality for all brew methods from espresso to French Press. The built-in electronic scale for accurate grind weights is a win-win for efficiency on the brew bar. The grinders offer a good look with their cast metal construction.
High volume coffee bars across the world use arrays of Forte BGs to provide multiple brewed offerings at a time. Load each machine with a different coffee, and you’re just a touch away from brewing up a fresh order for your customer. This makes it possible for cafés to provide greater options for their customers without sacrificing workflow and efficiency for their baristas. Included with every Forte are a shut-off hopper and burr removal tool for easy cleaning, and a simple burr calibration tool for quick QC calibration.
The Forté-BG is a compact, weight-based, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for brew methods requiring a medium to coarse grind.  The Forté-BG incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including: all metal construction; small footprint; intuitive control panel; and solid macro/micro adjustment. Coffee professionals have learned, from using the Vario-W in the brew bar setting, that weight-based grinding improved their workflow and efficiency. In response to the Vario-W success, and growing demand for this approach to grinding in the commercial environment, we have developed the Forté-BG.
The Forté-BG is a durable workhorse using a 54mm flat steel burr, which produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from Press Pot to Drip.  We re-designed the guts of the Vario-W for commercial use. The Forté-BG design includes a grinding assembly with a threaded burr holder which screws firmly into an all metal grinding chamber for a more accurate grind.  A larger gear to belt ratio, combined with a more efficient DC motor, increases the speed of grind and duty cycle.
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.
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 (500 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Forté-BG burrs.
ADUSTMENT/GRIND RANGE
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.
HOPPER
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). 
Want more capacity? A hopper extension is available that can add an additional 250g of capacity (hopper extention)!
RE-CALIBRATING BURRS
The Forté-BG is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forté-BG burrs can be easily re-calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.
CLEANING BURRS
Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forté.

Hopper extender: An extension that can add 250g of capacity to the existing 300g bean hopper.  Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
