  • 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.

    Forté BG

    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.

DUANE S. (Alberta, Canada)
Always Great Service

Best service in Calgary….thanks Folks!!

Kevin A. (Alberta, Canada)
Love it

Super easy to use, very very quiet which I love. For the first time in years we can make coffee before everyone wakes up. It looks great and is super accurate. It does cost over 1k but I expect it will last a long while. We bought a second hopper to make it easier to switch beans but it was a waste. It’s already super easy to switch beans and wastes only 10-11 grams. Don’t mess around and just buy it. You won’t regret it. Paired it with a Moccamaster. Looks great in our kitchen and the coffee is way better than anything I could buy.
I bought it on Tuesday and it was delivered to my door before 10 am Friday. Great company and I will buy more from 8 ounce.
